Sunday Happenngs

Our grandson's new digs!

Yesterday our son, DIL, and one granddaughter (another granddaughter had to work) drove up from The Woodlands, north of Houston, to move our grandson to Dallas. Brandon is 23 and has a great job in Houston that allows him to work from home. Dallas is about 3 hours from where he has lived all his life, so this is a big step for him. Of course we are thrilled to have our first grandchild only 65 miles from us! He is leasing a 3-bedroom townhome with two of his friends, and he will be much closer to his girlfriend who lives in Oklahoma! My husband and I drove down to tour his townhome, which is in a gated community in a trendy area near downtown Dallas. 

Here we are with our daughter, the two Littles, our DIL, and granddaughter in front, and our son and grandson in the back. We had just stuffed our faces with burgers and margaritas!



Today is a play day in the sewing room. I was forced to pause in the middle of working on The Wedding Quilt to invite a squirrel into my space. It is the fault of Diann from Little Penguin Quilts, who posted about this adorable table runner, and I could not resist. I plan to finish it this week and use it on our dining room table.


I have half of the rows sewn together for The Wedding Quilt. I need to hurry up and finish because my quilt assistant Toby keeps pulling the squares off the design wall then rearranging them up on the floor.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  3. Ooooh, which color are you using for your runner? I though I had the perfect combo of navies, but my blues are too close in value! So, I think I am using a purple combo even though I don't really use purple in my decor? Oh well, it's the fun of making, right? Can't wait to see yours. PS, LOVE your husband's T-shirt! Chrisknits

  4. It sure looks like you had a great time. I love the new apartment...and how nice to have him closer. Watch out for those squirrels...they are pesky project interrupters that is for sure.

  6. Your Grandson‘s new place looks wonderful! I’ll bet he is so excited. I know I would be. I’m excited about your table runner. I love the fabric that you’ve chosen, and cannot wait to see the end result. That is one of the reasons why I wish I knew how to quilt, I could make my own table runner. Pattie

  7. Does Toby, you assistant, have good taste and purpose to his rearranging your layout? LOL... other than just having fun for himself?

How nice to have your grandson so close along with the two little ones. Have a great day! Hugs - stay cool and wear an oxygen mask with the African Dust Bowl coming your way!
