Happy Birthday Christi

It’s hard to believe that my eldest is actually forty nine. One more year till the big 5-0! That means that I am really old.  Our family celebrated with dinner here last night ....her usual, chicken enchiladas and fixings.

Felt really good to see those smiles. This has been a difficult year for our family.

They also added another pup to their family. Like mother, like daughter.

This is Joy....

She’s a mini goldendoodle. So cute. Almost like my other daughter’s pup, Coach.

I finished Block 5 of the 2018 Designer BOM.

I struggled with this one.....and it was all due to my inattentiveness (is that a word?). I made mistakes cutting and stitching...ughhhh. But I forged through, and like the block.

Made it to the halfway point on the hearts - 60 finished. And 30 more hearts prepped, just need to cut the backgrounds.

Finished off the face and ears on Roxie. I have moved on to the body. It doesn’t look like much yet. We’ll see.

The Grady Lunch Bunch met at City BBQ in Decatur on Thursday. Good food and better company. 

Take Care,


  1. Is the Designer BOM one through the Fat Quarter Shop?
    My daughter is 56. Really makes me feel old.

  2. Oh Jennie, what a job you did on that block which looks very difficult to me. Love your wool hooking too. And those sweet hearts. My older daughter is 46 so I know what you mean...hard to believe but so happy to above the grass, as the saying goes. :)

    1. Very true, Jocelyn. We must be thankful for each and every day!

  3. That cake sure looks scrumptious! Happy birthday Christi. Roxy is coming together nicely.
