Grandma Martha and football...

We've been busy here at home...gearing up for FOOTBALL! That's right, it's Pirate fever around our house. Lots of practicing, coaching, and more practicing. My guys seem to think this is going to be the Pirate's "winning year"...admittingly I feel the same :-) What's going to make the season even more exciting for Mom is I'll have my good friend Conversation Queen sitting right beside me cheering our boys on! I can't wait...in a week or so we'll be heading down to the Jamboree, the official kick off to the football year! GO PIRATES!!





Happy birthday Grandma Martha! My friend Conversation Queen is celebrating her grandma's 89th birthday today! She asked me to make her a cute little basket liner for her scooter. Of course I said yes without thinking too much about it. Well...let me tell you, that was probably one of the most time consuming, difficult projects I've taken on. Why you ask? (some of you will laugh at this) I'm very illiterate when following patterns. I truly just modge podge my way through things...and for some odd reason I could not get the pattern to this liner to sink into my head! I sat and sat and sat...pondering, thinking, debating...and still I didn't get it. After 5 hours of trying, it finally came to me! The light bulb flickered on and shazzammm...I knew what to do! I was on the road to somewhere...30 minutes later this is what transpired...








Enjoy your pretty, lil' watermelon basket liner Martha...and a Happy Birthday to you!
