Family Time

I love having my children come home for a visit. Daughter 2 came for a few days since she will be starting a new job and not sure when she can come again. Daughter 3 and Ellie decided to come also. We did have a good time together as always. We tried making chocolate souffles. They turned out pretty good. Only 1 problem.....it made 8 and there were only 4 of us to eat them so we each had to have 2---- since they aren't good after sitting and deflating.Ellie and dolly were quite pleased with the new quilt. Poor dolly kept slipping out tho....I think it may have had something to do with the way she held her....upside down quite often.
I spent Wednesday sewing with a few other ladies. We each made a table runner. Pictures hopefully soon. I forgot my camera so Suzanne, our teacher for the day, said she would e-mail me a few to share. Sadly, my sewing machine has been sounding pretty rough lately and it wouldn't even sew a single stitch!! Luckily Suzanne had an extra one I could borrow for the day. Now I have to wait to put the binding on until I get my Viking back from repair. What will I do with my time now??? Just got a call from my quilter and she has my 1920 kit quilt completed. Oh I can hardly wait to pick it up to show you.

Happy Quilting! Lynda

You might have to call all your frinds to ask for a few bindings to hand stitch. I have a couple waiting in case you don't mind the commute;) Have a wonderful weekend with your loved ones!

You should have made the souffle's bigger, then you could have told us you only had one! Too funny. Your family day and your sewing day both add up to a great week! Good to hear from you ~

That souffle looks wonderful. What a shame you had to eat 2!

Oh a broken machine, plus having to double up on sweets. Kind of a bad week, huh? :)
