I'm an excited Mama!

This afternoon about 4:30pm I got a call that my Son and his girlfriend Kim are coming from Columbia, SC to spend the weekend!

Now, Columbia is not all that far, but it's just far enough that it makes it a bit difficult to get down there and back in the same day.

Quite often we will meet them half way and just have dinner somewhere around Rock Hill, SC....that way it's about 1.5 hours drive each way for each of us. Sometimes, if we need them to...this also involves passing off the dogs to them for a week while we go somewhere together.

This time..they are coming ALL THE WAY to spend the weekend and I am just tickled.

Of course, that means putting lots of things on the back burner, like uploading another little Sew and Tell post of quilt pics people have sent in. I wanted to do that before I head out for Kansas on Sunday, but it might not happen.

But even *I* find out time to time that there are instances in life where it is important to put first things first, and the kids are coming for the weekend...that is definitely a FIRST!

Jason and DH have plans to golf. Kim and I have plans for pedicures, maybe shopping, definitely lunch and whatever other girl trouble we can find ourselves in while the guys golf! LOL

At some point..I need to find another project to baste or prep to take with me on the plane to Kansas Sunday. I'm out of small tops waiting to be quilted..can you believe it? I don't think I have time to piece anything...so...I'm thinking..yep..it's time to complete the border applique on a top that has been hanging around for way too many years. and then, I can get THAT top basted for quilting while traveling.

OR....*thinking*....I have that hexagon medallion that I started umpteen years ago that has reached some stage of boredom and unfinished glory. Maybe that one? small hexagons are easy to travel with....

Anyway...that's what's going on here over this weekend! I hope yours is just as splendid!


  1. Yea! having kids around is a definite great. All other things take a back seat. Enjoy your weekend......

  2. YEP! Kids are first, have a great time with them and enjoy your week in!

  3. FIrst and foremost, ENJOY!
    Then, yes, God works in mysterious ways... perhaps he is saying to dig deep in the closets for that long lost project... :)
    I'm here on my island steadily making tops and not getting a thing finihsed.. I often wonder if I will ever be glad I have all of these tops completed some day.
    Funny how life is.
    HAVE FUN! Make pancakes... :)

  4. Shopping, Pedicures and Lunch sounds good! I got my first one this week as a late Mother's day from my DD. Would that shopping involve a FABRIC store??? Have fun! Kids coming is something to celebrate.

  5. I hope you have a fantastic weekend with your family, and find something to take with you on Sunday.

    I have several unfinished quilts waiting patiently to be quilted.

  6. Bonnie, Rock Hill is my home town!! I don't live there now, but we so desperately want to get back there (we are in Michigan). Enjoy your visit with your kids!! Family is wonderful! Happy Quilting

  8. Oh, I hope your weekend is ~lovely~.
    My weekend is garden prep and working on a button box quilt a friend got disgusted with and gave to me to finish.
