Make-A-List Monday September/October


September
(in review)

1.  Spend quality time with my special grandsons 

Lots of fun outings this month!!!

A trip to the Philadelphia Zoo:

LOTS of playground time:







A trip to Terhune Orchard:











Ooops!






Library Trip:


MORE hiking:



Sleepover fun:

Cutie Patooties:


Ryder is ready to get the critter in the attic!


2.  Piece, quilt, bind and label at least one "Quilts for Kids" quilt.  Attend the Quilts for Kids workshop at Pennington Quilt Works

*Annie is still not working.  In fact, she may have died an early death. 
 I hope to know soon if she will be fixed or if I will have to replace her.
Replacement is not exactly in the budget but she is seven years old and longarm technology has changed so much in those seven years.  I may have to break down and do some quilting with my DSM.

The Village Quilter




4.  Attend Septemberfest in Veterans Park.
