This and That

Fall is finally here (although the temperatures are still above normal) and another grandson has discovered how beautiful my mums are.

Here's a close up of the yarn my daugher spun for the Sweepstakes Prize at the Tulsa State Fair.  She told me that the "stuff" she started with was quite ugly and greasy. (I know "stuff" is not the correct word but I'm not a spinner so I don't remember the right terminology).  She used her spinning wheel to spin it into something beautiful.  She added metalic threads and tiny, shiny beads.

This is another piece she won a prize on.  It's a collar, shawl type of thing.  The next picture shows it opened up.

And here are the latest of my applique blocks.  Right now I'm working on the last two and then it's on to the border.

Three handsome boys.

Our oldest grandson Gabe started 6th grade at a new school this year.  One day a week he has to wear a tie for Chapel.  I think he looks extremely handsome.  He thinks I'm extremely weird.

Second grandson Timothy caught his first fish Sunday.  Here he is at his new home in the country.  (The pond is right down the hill from his room).  Very handsome (and pretty cute, too).

Third grandson Wesley started preschool this year.  He's the youngest in his class but by far the most handsome (at least that's what I think).  He's so stinkin' cute I can hardly stand it!
