Simple Sunday

 I couldn't stand one more day of doing nothing but sitting on the couch working on hexies. I have had this minky fabric waiting around for some attention way to long. Karsyn is all about her minky's for napping and sleeping. I embroidered a "K" on hers and one for my GF's grand that I will be having a sleepover with tomorrow, the rest went into the gift drawer. I went with a 14x14 size, not too big, not too small.
 Can't forget about the boys. Four more for boys are in the gift drawer as well. They will make nice little add on's for baby gifts. I  pick up minky (cuddle) fabric for $10.99 a yard at one of the HUGE outlet stores not far from here. Regular price in other stores can run as much as $19.99 a yard!!. You can also buy on line, here is the link
 While I was sitting on my rump working on minky's hubby was working like a crazy man trimming bush's and trees. He got a little carried away....When I looked out the front door I noticed one of our smaller Crepe Myrtles was gone. How could he not notice that a 7 foot tree with bark and flowers was NOT a weed? When I brought this to his attention and he realized what he had done he assured me it would grow back and that no one would notice, Ya right. Each of our DD's ask what happened to the other tree when they came for Sunday dinner.
 After Sunday dinner of carry out (hubby is sick of cooking) the grands had a dip in the hot tub, followed by a ride on the tractor with Papaw. Nothing fancy goes on at Sunday dinner, just family time with lots of catching up and laughter.
And KISSES. Lots and lots of KISSES. The little girls are all about kissing each other. They call each other sweet. As soon as I heard Karsyn say to Kara "Baby kisses" I knew I would get a great shot!!

I am packed and ready for an overnight with a GF tomorrow!! While we think we will get some sewing in the reality is we might not get a thing done other than a good long visit. My GF's school will be starting back on Wednesday so this is our last chance for some girl time, where the heck did the summer go? I hope to get a few photo's from around town to share. I realized while talking to her tonight I don't think I have ever taken any pictures of all the fun things they have around town. If you are an Andy Griffith fan this will be a real treat, I am headed to Mt Airey, NC, Andy's hometown


  1. Well, for sitting on your butt (your words!;>) you got a lot done. Love those little minkies. How cute are they?

    What a sweet picture of those two little girls kissing. One that will stay in the family album for years, I bet.

    Blessings to you and have a BALL with your BF! xo Diana

  2. Hello Debby
    Hello from Spain!

    Thank you for visiting and following my blog and I wish you the best of luck in my giveaway as I have put you down for one entry.
    I am now your newest follower!

    I really loved those photos of the kiddies...they look as if they are having a fantastic time in the pool. Water and being in it is the best element for children to while away the hot summer. Its unbelievable how a large bucket of water and a small container can keep a small child entertained for ages.

    Sorry to hear you are not well

  3. Love those "Baby Kisses", Hershey could take of with those two little ones advertising for them. Enjoy your girl time, Debby, it is well deserved.

  4. Love the minky!! Yes, it's very expensive!! $20/meter here & I've only ever seen it on sale once! :/ Your grands are getting so big!!!! They are truly angelic!! :)

    Enjoy your time away, Debby!!!
