I Love Thursday #50 – HB Richard!
This is our 50th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Happy Birthday Richard! It is Sue’s nephew and our Godson, Richard’s birthday today. This is Richard and his wife, Elaine, from a vacation in 2017. He is a HUGE Batman fan, as is his Aunt Sue. We love you Richard! We can remember when you were born so well – I almost brought out some of those old pictures because you are and were so cute. Another blessing in our lives, as they have such a lovely family.
Susan Marie! I ordered some packages of felt online from Joann Fabrics. Before I submitted the order, I asked Sue “IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE WE NEED???” Do you have a clue where this is going?? No, I don’t think so was the reply. I said we need some pink thread, so I added a spool of Gutermann “Charm” pink thread – which was out of stock so it didn’t matter if it matched or not. Anyhoo, about an hour later (!!! – AN HOUR!!) she says, Oh yeah, we need some Heat ‘n Bond Light & Heavy. I looked at her. Seriously??!! That is WHY we make a list. She said she has a list – she just doesn’t know where it is. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! And that is why I love my bestie. I placed a second order, since we found the list and there were EIGHT things on it. ♥♥ That would have qualified us for saving $10 because we spent over $50 in the two orders . . . oh well.
Did you notice the Batman theme?? Just wait – there’s more . . . same Bat time, same Bat channel . . .
More garden yummies! We ate sweet corn, and picked fresh tomatoes and green peppers. YUM-o. I love this time of year. I meant to make some zucchini bread or cupcakes this year, but didn’t get a chance. The fresh cucumbers were fabulous this year, too, which I thought was odd because we had a draught in July. Here’s to another good summer harvest next year.
Sweet Tweets! A fellow blogger, Kathleen at Kathleen McMusing, is an Island Batik Ambassador. On a recent post she shared a new line of fabrics being introduced with this picture. I have been thinking about this picture ever since she shared it. I find the random placing of all of the fabrics just perfect for a modern-ish quilt. What do you think of it? I think something similar to this needs to be drawn out in EQ8 (hint, hint Sue)!
Fabric sharing! I followed a linky party link with an intriguing picture and subject. The link took me to Brooke’s Silly Mama Quilts website. I left a comment and was the winner of her giveaway. Don’t you think it is time for me to make another doll quilt or two?! I do, and send it off to A Doll Like Me.
Dominic had a busy week following officially turning one a whole week ago! First up, this is how we climb our new slide from Grandma so early in the morning. Then we play with all the pieces of our new train learning center, especially the whistle that goes choo-choo. Next, Dominic is wondering if he has to put himself in his high chair or is mom going to help? He is ready for his pancakes, please! When we go to the pool at the YMCA, we splash and splash and try to drink the water after we say Hi to everyone we see. Finally, Inspector Dominic is on the job. Dad has passed inspection, folding the towels appropriately. Now lets go play. ~smile~
And two more pictures Bat baby because I promised there would be one more Batman reference! I think both of Sue’s nephews follow in her footsteps very well, don’t you? Carry on the tradition . . .
That’s it for this week! We hope your week is filled with many blessings. Happy Thursday! See you next week with more loves; it’s almost a year of sharing!
