Happy Birthday Madison!

I am taking it easy today. I worked hard yesterday and got pretty hot. So today, I am resting. Yesterday, I finished picking the beans. This time I got about 1 1/2 buckets. I blanched these and got them in the freezer. I also did some work around the house and cleaned the litter boxes. I only have 2 cats, but they each prefer a different litter box. Do I spoil my ladies or what? LOL

Today is our granddaughter, Madison's 1st birthday. We do not get to see her much, but still think about her daily. I have not seen her since Easter, so these pictures are old. I am sure she has changed in looks by now. Might even be walking.
Baby, if you could read this, I would want you to know that your grandpa and I love you dearly. We hope some day to see you on a regular basis. Please keep that beautiful smile.
(Big Sigh) Changing the subject, before I get all weepy!  I have finished the HST's for the Charm Square Quilt Along. I even have them all trimmed up. Here are 150 HST's sorted into groups of 10's.
Now I need to get the redwork done on the Raggedy and Friends BOM. That will have me caught up. I think I can also face Jeremy's quilt again. It was giving me problems, so I decided to step back from it for a while. I finished the quilting on the blocks of the redwork barns last night. Now I just have some quilting to do on the borders and it will be ready for binding. I'll share pictures when I get that done.

I guess that is it for me today. Now I need to go put my feet up and do some handwork. My ankles are swollen again. I will be glad when this heat and humidity leaves us. Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.

How is Kevin doing? Been praying for him.

It is going to be 100 here Saturday! I can just imagine what the heat index will be! I plan on doing a lot of nothing that day, LOL!

Love you,

I have had trouble with ONE ankle being swollen a lot this summer. Madison is a sweetie. I, too, hope you can see her more often soon. I only see my granddaughter about 4 times a year. :(

Happy Birthday Madison. I love the colors in the HSTs. That's a great idea to pin them together in groups of 10.
