Awesome Adventures - June 2016


Now that summer is almost over I'm hoping to be able to find time to write a few more blog posts.  We've been SOOOOO busy this summer, that writing anything for Quilty Pleasures has been the farthest thing from my mind.  

Trying to combine my Quilting Adventures with my Family Adventures in one monthly post has proven to be a daunting task.  It has come time for me to separate the two

Awesome Adventures with Ryder & Logan will be a new page on Quilty Pleasures.

From time to time I will post some AWESOME pictures of my AWESOME grandchildren.

Did I mention that my grandchildren are AWESOME?

These may be pictures of adventures we've had together or adventures that their parents, Kyle and Heather, have shared with me.  

I'm hoping that this will be sort of a "scrapbook" for us all to look back on as they grow older.  By posting these pictures here I will be able to free up Make-A-List Monday to be mostly about my
Quilty Adventures.

Beach Fun!

Yummy!  Face painting with ice cream.

Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles!

Ryder's End-of-Year Preschool celebration

Well, I think that catches up with some of the things we did in June.  There have been some pretty exciting things (IMHO) happening around our house that I hope to blog about in the near future.

Until Next Time...Happy Stitching!!!
