So today was Emma's first day of 6th grade. Man where did the time go? Especially this Summer. The kids and I had some great times and built some lasting memories. But now it's time for school to start up again and get us all back into that routine. Except this year we have an added adjustment to our routine. Emma is riding the bus! YIKES I know! This is the first time in her life she has had to ride the bus to and from school. The district changed our start and end times so that I just can't manage to drop her off and still make it to work in time. However, I am able to SEE her get on the bus then dart off on my way to work, and provided that I have already taken Malek to daycare 45 minutes before. That gives me time to get him dropped off and back at the house to walk Emma to the bus stop just up the street. Or at least stand in the driveway and watch HER walk to the bus stop. Man it's tough letting go. I cried the whole way to work simply because I wasn't able to DRIVE her to school myself. I can only imagine what I'll be like in two years when I have to take Malek to Kindergarten!?!
Here's a little of what's been keeping me busy this summer............
Little getaway to Sea World in San Antonio....
Emma celebrated her 11th birthday.....
So I guess that's about it for now.........School's back in session, we've got a new routine at home and there's plenty more sewing to be done for the October Craft Show!
p.s....and did I mention?? It was POURING down rain this morning when I put her on the bus! Just my luck!

This pile, which turned into..........
Not sure why blogger won't keep this one turned the right direction....but you get the idea! Quite the productive weekend! I love the assembly method. Did each step to all cases involved which made the process go alot smoother. That's a total of 12 pillowcases in 2 days!! And really I cut everything all on Saturday and only assembled 2 Saturday night. Did the other 10 on Sunday! The kids are stocked for pillowcases for awhile!
Take care - Jenn

Here is Emma's Grandpa (my dad) holding up the table runner she made for him and Mary.
This is a little lap throw that I made for Mary out of her signature color - red! I quilted it in a very simple X pattern thru each of the blocks.
Now - here's the part that I'm REAL proud of....You should have seen the disaster BEFORE! I was really too ashamed to even take pictures of that nightmare.
I moved my sewing desk to the other window and as usual, have my little tv over in the corner playing none other than my super favorite sewing movie - Little Women!
