Well, last night I finished the last slipper. Now all I have to do is sew in ends, sew on 12 buttons, and sew on the sueded bottoms for both Maddys and Katies slippers. So, this is what I did today...

 When I say to you that this is my first quilting experience since I was like 14, I am NOT exagerating. I am really happy I decided to jump in and join the $5 Quilt Project over at Quilted Threads! That's right, you heard me... $5 for the class, plus $5 for the first block. Then, all you have to do is make sure your monthly block is done and your butt is in the seat early for the class the following month, and you don't pay another DIME! Cool! Right? The only glich? The finished size was supposed to be 12 1/2". Mine? 12inches square... Not really sure how that happened, but, I'll roll with it. Tomorrow I hope to get the slippers all done. And then I will pull out the 4-year-sweater and get it ready to finish during our knitting-marathon.

See my beautiful family? We went with our church (Grace Capital Church) to see our own Manchester Monarchs play on Saturday night - I am pretty sure it was the best game they have ever played! 7 to zip! Here you have my Maddy (she just turned 10), Kevin (my awesome Husband), Katie (my incredible 13 year old step-daughter), and my massively tall and skinny son Aidan (just turned 12 a couple weeks ago, and wants you all to know he is 5'8").  Of course - I was taking the pictures that night, so the only pictures of me are ones I took of myself (sound familiar?)

So, what's on tap for tomorrow? I dunno - but I am sure it will involve driving children, laundry (the guy is coming with the part tomorrow... after 3 weeks of no machine...), and knitting needles...
