Friday Fun

Anxiety GirlI saw this online the other day … and I have to say, it definitely describes me to a “T”. 

The summer swim season drew to a close last night … and what a night it was!  First of all, the weather was ideal.  And secondly, my Ts did a fabulous job!  T#1 finished first in his individual medley and his breast stroke – in dramatic come-from-behind finishes… and came in a close second in the butterfly.  Their team finished with a 6-2 record.  The conference competition will be a week from tomorrow … T#1 will definitely make conference, and T#2 is on the cusp … T#3 won’t because the conference competition is open only to 8+ year olds. 

Papa and I left the meet a little early to bring T#4 home for the evening … she spent the night here because she’ll be here all day today while the rest of the family is going to Six Flag with friends.

I finished the quilting on T#4’s quilt yesterday afternoon.  All I need to do now is to cut the binding strips and then stitch it on.  I’ll have to wait until Saturday to do that … and then it will be time to start piecing my storm at sea quilt. 

If you recall, I’ll be making in blue and white … just like the drawing above.  I can’t wait to start piecing.

Have a fabulous Friday!


  1. Congratulations on your little fish! :)
    Post a picture of the quilt...that is just amazing!

  2. Sounds like such wonderful times watching your little ones swim and seeing them be so successful! Enjoy your Storm at Sea - it is going to be so gorgeous!!! I love that pattern - it is one of my favorites :*)

  3. haha on your sign, I can relate too. ; ) Congrats to your little swimmers. How fun this sounds. Enjoy your littlest grand today (I know you will!) I CAN'T WAIT to see that gorgeous blue and white quilt you are working on. Now that I have finally finished my baby items I am going to pick my first quilting project. I am excited. Enjoy your week=end!

  4. Hi Kathy, I think there are parts of my personality that this sign describes as well. I know you'll have fun today with your grand. Hope you get lots of stitching done!
    We are going camping(I wish we had an RV), but my back hurts this morning and we had high winds last night-so hope we don't blow away.
    Have a great weekend my friend.
    Hugs, Noreen

  5. I might qualify for that sign too! I'll be watching as you begin your storm at sea! ~Jeanne

  6. Love the blue and white! My mother can jump to the worst conclusion in a single bound also. Every. Single. Time. Drives me nuts! LOL

  7. Yeah to the T's!!!

    I love the Storm at Sea pattern and the blue and white will be gorgeous.

  8. If DH saw that sign he would probably have a T-shirt of it made for me!
    I have a blue & white storm at sea quilt made for me by my Mom before the days of rotary cutting. She still remembers how tedious it was to cut all that with cardboard templates she had made. But it is a beauty. I love blue/white quilts (even more than red/white).

  9. I love anxiety girl!! I was reading your post when my husband walked in and he said, " Hey I know that girl, that is you." So two peas in a pod I think. :) So today you are having a nice day with your baby huh? Aren't they sweet to have around.
    I bet you have fun with a new quilt I always enjoy starting new projects. My DIL has started quilting and I got to see her how much she got done today. I am so tickled. Hers is blue and white too.
    It sounds like you have a nice weekend planned.
    Have fun.

  10. Congats to all the little T's!! The quilt is beautiful. I love, love, love the blue and white. Have fun making it.

  11. I got a chuckle from Anxiety Girl.:-)
    Looking forward to seeing your storm at sea quilt.

  12. Know you are proud of the grands. Nothing more fun than cheering for them....whatever they are participating in. We are still getting tons of rain which is keeping it a little cooler here...which I am grateful for. It's been in the high 80's...quite a change from the 100+ degrees we usually have in July!

  13. Way to go Grans!

    Love the sign on anxiety!

    Storm at Sea, what an interesting name. I look forward to seeing the finished product!

    Happy new week!

  14. I love the Anxiety Girl, I had to copy it!!! Way to go on the swimming meet. Hope they had fun at six flags. Love your next quilt, really pretty.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
