Friday night I didn't get as much done as I had wanted. (isn't that the case most of the time) but I was able to sew quite a bit on Saturday, made progress. Sewed more sashing on the Fall quilt. I want so bad to put it away and start on something else, but I stuck with it. Since by son wakes up at the crack of dawn, I sewed a little while before church, probably a little too long since we were late for church, missed all of the music and barely sat down before the offering plate was passed. Almost turned around and went home because we were soooo late, but decided to go anyway. After church I fixed a quickie lunch, husband watching football games, son wanting to play Wii, I wanted to sew. We all compromised. DH watched football down stairs, I moved the Wii upstairs (we have 2 Wii, upstairs and downstairs, but during Christmas school break I took the one upstairs to my parents house for Stevie to play. With all of the snow I have never brought it home, cause I never know when he is going to be out of school and spend the day with them.)to the bonus/sewing room and I sewed while Stevie played the Wii. Every once in awhile I had to read something to him or go "Wowww you won!! Great" as I was sewing. I FINISHED (insert happy dance here) the Fall quilt, sashing, borders everything!!! Now to get it quilted.

I started another quilt last night, after I carefully folded (yeah, right) the Fall quilt (need to give it a better name now). Very excited about it,the new quilt that is, don't really know why, except I am using Blush by Moda. Pinks, auqa,and browns, being a mom to two boys, I don't get to sew with pink very often.

I have a BIG BIG secret but......Can't tell you about it until Thursday. Check back on Thursday to see what my secret is.

My father went for some test today. His medical doctor brought up the BIG C word but the specialist today was more optimistic and he has to go for more test. Please say a little prayer for him.
