This and That Thursday

It feels like a miscellaneous week. I’m trying to take care of a myriad of little things. I did spend some concentrated time finishing up a top secret quilt top that I won’t be able to share until spring. But I can show you this lovely little quilt. 


Remember how I said I gave some blocks away that were on my UFO list? Karen made the lovely quilt shown above out of my leftovers and donated it to the Palliative Care unit at her local hospital. Great job, Karen!

I made a couple pillow cases for Big L and Little L out of this:

I will be taking them over to them today. I got these two cuties groomed this week.


Because, drum roll please, Daughter #2 is coming home in about one month! Woo hoo! A huge thanks to all who have prayed for her during her deployment! It isn’t over yet, but the end is in sight!

My sister will be arriving on Saturday so I am also getting ready for her visit. This will be the most time we have had together since high school! Shenanigans will ensue! Such as this:


Hubby is back home so I sent him the following picture text message this morning. You can see his response.


I guess I better behave then! Lol! Have a great day!
