Sidney Day…

the usual blend of magic and fun.  The day began with a quick chat before the parents headed to work when suddenly Zach noticed that a deer was staring right at us…

and then it started to rain and POUR, so the projected park visit was out.  Sidney gave me some advice on the last little bit of the blue cross quilt left to go…

and while I was thinking about it, the quilt quickly became the base of a fort…

Even though the rain had NOT let up we headed to the grocery store and out to lunch…where else…Laughing Planet…and the dinosaurs were HUNGRY when we got there.

Then, there was some kind of a “hatch” I guess…

which was a bit confusing to some members of the party…

so we moved on…still pouring rain so of course, where else,

We stayed for supper and headed home and only THEN, as we passed the falls, did the sun come out…

and by the time we got home I was all done!!  And now to bed…

    1. Ruth I always hated sewing and never started quilting until 10-11 years ago. I DID love fabric and pattern…handwork and layers I understand…my first quilts were simple …in fact, hilariously, one of my first quilts I hand pieced (I didn’t have a sewing machine) and then paid somebody to machine quilt! Now I have a Bernina and a Juki and hand-quilt all my own. It in forms my painting and vice versa and gives me something creative to be working on ALL the time!

  1. Sidney Day always melts my heart. Grandchildren are the best gift of all….thank you for sharing yours. xoxo
