We've had a hectic few weeks here. The Girl has been working on tech/sets for a local children't theater group all summer and the past two weeks I have hardly seen her. The last performance was Sunday. They put on The Jungle Book-this is a version that has been very popular in Budapest and this happened to be the world premier in English.

I've been busy working on this wall-hanging for my brother-in-law.  This is my own design, so I'm a little nervous about what my sister will think. She asked me to make a fish wall hanging, but gave me no guidance.....hope she is pleased.

On friday, we will drive to Indiana to visit my parents.  I am not looking forward to the drive or the hot, humid weather. My mom and I plan on doing some quilting, she's just beginning and has asked me for some help. Funny, my mom has taught me so much over the years, and now I am teaching her.

Hopefully, I'll be able to find some time to blog while away.....

Sweet success......

She passed!!!! Thanks for the prayers/good thoughts. She didn't miss a point and she DIDN'T HIT A POLE!!!! And she's already off....I think I actually felt the apron strings loosen a little more as I watched her drive away. Ahh, the joys and sorrows of mothering....

Before and After....

The Girl at almost 6 months.....
The Girl at 16...
Yep, that's a Converse cake.....I am a quilter NOT a cake decorator....

She's actually dealing with the failed driver's exam well.  I think God knew I needed a few extra days to adjust. I am now SOOOO ready for her to Pass. That.Test.  We are taking both her car and my husbands car to the DMV to practice parallel parking today. She may use my husbands car for the test as it is smaller than hers(my old car). That comes after painting her room-bright blue and green.............

Heartbroken...

I am heartbroken. My beautiful girl did not pass her driver's test. She had a perfect score until the parallel parking. She hit a pole.

But, "ain't she cute?"
