Fathers Day Barbecue

Tomorrow is father's day and my son in law's birthday. Since two of  my sons are traveling tomorrow  we are getting together today.

Even though it's a father's day barbecue, the men decided they were going to do the barbecue!

My sons's specialty is beer can chicken so that's what they are making.  Three guys working on getting it ready. Did I mention that the first batch burned?  Luckily there was enough time to do a second batch.

My daughter is making a "carne asada" a big favorite!  We are also having rice and beans and salad with "tres leches" cake for desert.

I think it's going to be a great day! Hope every dad has a wonderful day with their families.

Until next time . . .
Keep on quilting!

Grandson Has Graduated!

We are in California for our grandson's graduation!

This past Wednesday was the big day. We took the usual pictures with the graduate. It was a very nice day and very exciting to see our grandchild graduate.

It wasnt too long ago that we were at his father's high school graduation!  It seems like just a few years ago, but in reality its been thirty years ago!

My goodness how time flies!!!  And it's because the time flies that I am working, as much as possible, on getting my quilts done.

I only brought my table topper 3/4 inch hexie project with me. I have only worked on it when I am away from home so this was perfect to have on the train ride.

We will be home soon and i will be able to get back to my other quilting projects.

Also later this summet i am planning to thoroughly clean my treadle machine.

So, in the meantime... Keep on quilting.
