I Won! And It's Finally Cooling Off.

I won! I am so excited!! Sondra at had a giveaway and I won!! Thanks Sondra!! Please take a look at her blog when you can. She is a sweetheart and has a great blog.

It is finally cooling off here in the desert! We had rain on Saturday morn and I was loving it! Saturday nite we went to my daughters and watched UFC. Great fights! I know, I'm weird, but I love the cage fights. Not to be mistaken for WWF or whatever it is!! I'm talking MMA, cage fighting. The real deal. We've been following it for a long time now, and yes, I'm hooked.

I finally got to work on the baby quilt for my new grandaughter. I messed up and had to rip some seams out, or I probably would have been almost done!! Hate it when that happens!! Oh, well. I am trying my hand at the scrap quilt thing. Got some pretty little pink prints in Durango when we were there. Hope it turns out! I'm not much of a quilter.

I made some new pins to sell on my Etsy shop.
I'm really starting to feel like its fall now.
Been working on my swap stuff. Fun!

I'm A Grandma Again!!!

My son and daughter in law had their 2nd baby girl on Monday!! She is precious,of course!! This will probably be the last grandbaby. My daughter and son in law are through too. So we have to REALLY spoil her!! I have been very busy as you can imagine. My dad hasn't been doing too good lately and has needed some extra care.

I signed up for 2 new swaps, so I can't wait to get started on those.

Back To The Heat!

These are pics of the swap package I sent to my partner for the Seasonal Sister swap. Very fun!
Well, I got to cool off for a bit, but now it's back to the heat! We just got back from beautiful Colorado and it was awesome! We rode the motorcycle and we took some bicycle rides along the river. Hung out with friends. Much needed R&R! Then we came back to Arizona and OMG!! Well, it had cooled down some since we had left---- but it was still in the 100's. It was 109 degrees when we pulled into town!! Much better than the 120 when we left!!

I did get to go to some thrift stores and antique stores while I was there. Fun! And a cool yarn store that had all the great bulky yarns I love! I will post pics later of some of my finds.
