Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Sue's Sunday Morning Musings - Memorial Week-end

Aaaah! Sunday mornings. I enjoy not having to get up and go anywhere too early. This morning is rainy. Thunder and lightning was in the sky at 6:00 a.m. and the air outside has cooled off considerably. It seems to rain quite often on Memorial week-end, here in Michigan.

My week-end has been eventful. I spent time with my youngest daughter on Friday night, just helping her out with the two granddaughters. Her husband had been gone for three days working. She just needed a break and a chance to take a long bath. He did get home about 1:00 a.m. Saturday. Then, Saturday morning, we all went downtown to watch the Highland Festival parade. My 3-year-old granddaughter made some of the cutest comments. "There's a princess, grandma." "When I grow up, I'm going to play in a marching band." "Grandma, I got some candy. They threw it to me."

Later in the day, we had a barbecue at my oldest daughter's house. We enjoyed family time together with all three of our grandbabies. Great-grandma & grandpa were also there, so we took lots of four generation pictures and some with just the grandbabies. Of course, the grandbabies didn't exactly cooperate with the cameramen... crying, tipping sideways, 3-year-old making faces or looking at something other than the camera. It was enjoyable, though. Don't you just love digital cameras! You can delete the pictures that don't turn out, or show them off and laugh.

I'm glad that it's rainy today. Rainy days are the best days to stay indoors; "when it rains, I quilt". I have a wall-hanging I need to finish for the SewBatik Challenge at the National Quilting Association quilt show in June. I finally purchased a background fabric for my MQ6 mystery quilt. The reveal was Friday, so I certainly didn't get started on time. But, I like the reveal and need to make a quilt for a niece. Her favorite color is purple, so I found a light colored calico that will work for the design. I also have a baby quilt for my grandson that needs worked on. Of course, I won't be able to work on all of these today, but there is tomorrow.

Happy Stitching!

It must be wonderful to be able to spend time with the grandbabies. Count those blessings and don't ever take them for granted. I'm lucky to see my grandchilren a couple times a year. Those times are treasures for me and they go by far too fast. Enjoy them every moment.God's blessings.
