Up and Running Again

A get on the blogging role again. Thanks so much for those of you who pop in and leave me a note, it means a lot.
Many, many things have gone on since I was posting regularly. It's now almost the end of July, and we are awaiting the phone call of the arrival of the newest baby Templeton!!! The due date is actually the 29th, and Carter arrived a week past due, but we are all thinking it could be this weekend. I was able to go down for a bit of a visit last weekend, after helping sister Carol with her garage sale.
And there is the photo of a couple of sleepy guys!! I had fun playing with Carter for a couple of hours while Genie was able to get some rest. I remember those days being so very pregnant!! They have settled into their new MUCH larger house and will be enjoying bringing baby boy Henry home in just a short time, I'm sure.

My garden is so far behind!! Maybe tomorrow I'll get myself out there to clean up the herb garden anyway. Jillian and Ethan and dog Cosmo are her for the weekend, while their parents enjoy their wedding anniversary away for a couple of days.

I did get a quilt done (okay, no binding yet) and it is on my guest bed, over the kids!
This is a quilt I started about 3 or 4 years ago, using the tri rec rulers. I love how the circular look comes about.

My small group had an extra sew day this month and we were able to put together two oversized lap quilts for the husbands of two of our members husbands. One has been recently diagnosed with an advanced cancer, and has begun a chemotherapy regime and the other has been suffering with age related health issues for quite some time. Two of our other members husbands are dealing with Alzheimer's, so we are thinking they all need some extra hugs these days.....

I am still planning to post my photos and share some stories from my New York trip, so stay tuned for that!! Be back soon. Really. Truly...I mean it!
