A month of Saturdays

I'm about a month behind in blogging, aren't I? :P

Saturday September 15, my parents were here. Below is a picture of them touring the Tombstone Courthouse.

It was a nice visit, but time flew by way too fast! At least I could rest in the knowledge that I would be seeing them again in 3 weeks.

Saturday September 22, we went to the in-law's house and celebrated my brother-in-law's 24th birthday.

Saturday September 29th was the wedding. I had spend the week helping prepare for the wedding. I put together the favor boxes (and fought to death with the printer!) and help set up the tables and such.

That morning my husband and I had to pick up the cake from the bakery. I had to carry it on my lap for the ride home. Every bump and wiggle made me wince! I didn't want to be responsible for the cake toppling!

Here's a picture of my husband the night before the wedding. Longish hair, beard... all has to go.

I gave him a hair cut Saturday morning and he shaved. Doesn't he clean up nicely? ;)

On the left is the newlyweds, my husband and his parents on the right.

And of course, there was the whole wedding itself! :)

Saturday October 6, I was flying over to my parents house.

Then I spent the whole week either dyeing fabric or preparing the house for my brother's Eagle Scout Court of Honor.

Saturday October 13 my dad wakes me up at 7am and I spent the next 5 hours typing and preparing the program for the Court of Honor. Then there was the whole event itself. Top of it all, I had to pack everything I could that night, cuz we were leaving Sunday morning. Whew. :)

But this Saturday? Mine! All mine! :D Hubby is away on a conference, and there's a mystery quilt on one of my groups. I'll be making the baby sized quilt and so far I think there's snowball blocks in it. With my hand dyed fabrics from last week, of course. ;)

Hip, Hip Horay!!! You're back!!! And so happy to hear that tomorrow is all yours and you will be getting time at the machine!

At last! Finally we may get some "real quilting photos" those cut fingers and snippit ornaments were ok, and all... and I guess you could call them quilt related... but nothing compared to the real thing ;) LOL

Glad you are back and didn't forget about us!

Have fun tomorrow and Happy Weekend! ~Bonnie in SE Texas
