Catching Up

This has been a sort of strange week, what with Joey coming home and most of the family visiting. I've also been working on another vest for a Christmas gift for a friend. So, I thought I'd show you some things I've made and then some photos of the family from last Sunday after church. More photos will be posted in the next couple of days.

John's Arsi has a birthday on Monday, so last week we took them out to eat. I made her this pillow and embroidered the dragonfly on it. Her favorite color is green, and she loves dragonflies.
This is the mermaid I made for the Glitter Power Sisters' mermaid swap. I forgot to take a photo of the ATC I made to join her.Last Friday Louise and I attended the Trinity Valley Quilt Show in Fort Worth. This is a photo of Louise with one of the beautiful quilts.
This is the one I voted on for best quilt. I LOVE art quilts!!Here's Joey on Sunday afternoon in his India Company t-shirt.
Here are Jen and Bethy laughing at a Toby Keith video. Bethy LOVES Toby Keith!Here are Dan and Tim engrossed in something on the net...gee, don't we love laptops!
These are our three daughters: Carolyn, our middle child...John, Joey, and Beth's mom
Christi, Jen and Travis' mom and our babyKat, our oldest, mother to Dani and Tim

I have lots of photos of family members with Joey. I'll post them soon...plus Joey's official military photo.

What a lovely family you have, Sioux. Your mermaid is very cool, and I love that dragonfly pillow, too. Art quilts are great - wish I was talented with a needle and thread.

I am so glad Joey was able to be there with all of you.

He is a handsome young man.

Hi Sioux. I've been catching up with all of your recent posts and so much has happened for you. Love the neighborhood/house photos. I WANT the fixer upper with the elevator.

The difference between Anglican/Episcopalian starts with leadership, yes? Then basic Christian tenets interpretation, yes?

It's wonderful having the family all together again no matter how brief the time. Enjoy it fully.
