This is the progress on the Dear Hannah quilt that I am making for my grand-daughter, Hannah.  She posed in front of the quilt. She likes to pick out the colors for the blocks.  I really need get working on more blocks for this.

Hannah is in fourth grade and loves to go down and sew with my fabric scraps. She has made many outfits for her dolls, they are looking really good. So far she hasn't sewn her fingers, but I tell her it will happen at some point.

Summer Time Gone - Fall is Here

My summer time is gone and I don't know where it went. It was a very busy time for me.

In June, my sisters, Ruth and Linda, and my niece, Amy went on a long road trip out to Texas for my other sister, Joan's anniversary party. Fred and Joan celebrated their 50th anniversary.
I hadn't seen some of the nieces and nephews in years so was a nice reunion with them and seeing how much their children have grown up.  My brother even drove out and so here is a picture of all the siblings. 

After the party we continued our road trip. We managed to do about 13 parks, including the Alamo, Vicksburg, and three presidential library's; Lyndon Johnson and both George H. and George W. Bush.
 At the Alamo
 George H Bush Library, on his birthday celebration day so we got cake and ice cream. this was my favorite library [not the cake stuff but the exhibits].

Maybe I would have been a good president?

Even got to the beach with the McKenney clan in Florida.

Now I suppose I must get back to the quilting stuff.  But I will really miss my Katie this fall.  :(
