WIPs With Friends

I have to confess I have not been doing much sewing of late.  
I received my nephew's quilt back from the quilter and she did a FABULOUS job, as usual. 
 The wedding is August 13th so I will show a sneak peek at the end of this post.  

We have our great nieces and nephew in town for a few weeks, 
staying with grandma (my husband's sister).  
Last night when I got home they were all in my family room!  
The girls rushed over to me and gave me the biggest hug! 
 They are the sweetest. 
Christian decided that he really needed to try out our vacuum!  
Who was I to say no?


 We took them to dinner to meet up with their grandma and their aunt and uncle and their 2 girls.  
We took over the dining area at the local Culvers!  
My eldest daughter joined us so it was quite a party!!

We decided to take the three back to Shelby's farm and let them play with the animals.
  Well, Beep was none too sure about this invasion of the littles!


Out came the babies.  Grace was holding the baby peacock. 


Christian was the first one to hold one of the snakes.


 Then Shelby brought out the BIG snake. 
 Grace and Christian were not too sure but Jo was all about it.


Looks like we have a little Herpetologist to be in the family.



Jo watched everything that Shelby did with the snake and decided to mimic her.
Take a look at Jo's face at the end of the video.
PRCELESS!


OK if you stayed through all of that you deserve that sneak peek I was talking about, but shhhhhh don't share this photo!  I still have a LOT of hand stitching left to do on that binding!

Looks like the kids are having a fun summer. Have fun at the up-coming wedding. Can't wait to see that quilt. I'm ready for the finish already! The quilting is gorgeous.

Looks like everyone had a wonderful time playing with the animals. I love the picture of the smallest one with the snake. She looks so proud of herself :) The quilting looks great on the wedding quilt. And if anyone asks, we didn't see a single stitch of it.

Awe what sweet pictures. Isn't it strange to have little ones in your house after your own kids have finally left. Love the looks with the snakes.

Any chance you could put a warning at the top of any future posts that have pictures of snakes? I have an irrational fear with severe reaction. Stupid, I know.

I love your blog.
