BOYS IN THE BAND

Last Friday we went to Eugene to watch our oldest Grandson, Tylor, play his first guitar recital.


What a blast, Ty played lead guitar, a Nirvana song, Man Who Sold the World. He was soooo nervous, man oh man..... I'm just saying...white lips... in these times you want to say just the right thing to help them relax and enjoy the moment. I know nothing said will change things, only the experience gained will help this feeling. I believe Ty enjoyed it very much...he had such a relaxed cute smile after it was all over.
It was such an experience to see Ty playing along with a complete band. When he was finished other students and his instructor, who played along with him, were so encouraging. It was good to see, Joe and I were so appreciative that we could be there and share it with Ty.

I was impressed with the goodwill from his fellow students, one was a young man, our age, lol.....who performed on the drums the same song Ty performed.

We went to Cold Stone Ice Cream afterwards and celebrated a very fun time.

Now on to my youngest grandsons, the three amigos in Omaha.......... Boy oh Boy their smiles are just what the doctor would order for me anyday. Hayden, who is just the cutest package on earth......has the longest eyelashes, both mom and dad have long eyelashes.....

Ethan can take center of attention with his character and funny personality. He just cracks me up, I could share more pictures of this expression, maybe a video would be good. I especially love his shirt. Joe's Delivery Co. that's grandpas name and that is his job......

Jaxon loves his new play ride... its not a bouncy ride like his other playset but this expression is one of my favorites. See......I have said this before....I want to know what he is thinkin..... I know its all good..... I sewed up a little table runner from JLW, these three blocks are from Jo Morton's Prairie Flower. Working with wool is always enjoyable for me, I wasn't sure about the sashing border fabric at first, but after getting it together I liked it.

I have been sewing on my many BOM projects, they are keeping me well entertained this winter, I am ready to get outside and enjoy some gardening........ but not just yet.....we are still having snow flurries and it is cold. So sewing it is and I have enough to keep me busy.

I am working on prepping my Birds of a Feather using the starch method. I think it will take me a week to get it prepped......LOL....I am a slowpoke when learning a new technique. I will show it when its finished.

Best wishes to all of you...

OMG! I just realized that they were not the same baby....Good thing I'm not the grandma; I'd have to sell my house and move because I don't think I could stay away from those cuties. They're so cute...like muffins! Oh dear, I think I'm in love, LOL!

Love your table runner. Isn't wool is so relaxing to work with? I'm itching to get my hands into the dirt as well but it's going to be at least another 6 weeks in this neck of the woods. (sigh)

I love the Jo Morton tablerunner (loved the babies too!). Can you bring the pattern into JLW Club on the 18th, I'll be there. I would like to see the pattern and see if I have it. I'm doing Birds of a Feather too. Brenda from SMQ

I used to love to go watch my grandson in concert. Those are sure a couple of cute babies there! Love those expressions. Beautiful tablerunner.

Gosh, Carrie, they sure have grown since I last checked your blog. Did you ever receive the pattern that I sent? Our mail has been so crazy lately. The other day everyone on our block got everyone else's mail....sure makes you wonder what other mail has gotten lost.

Baby pictures are so adorable. Love your applique. Yes, prepping can take awhile.

Hi Carrie - thanks for stopping by!

How neat that must have been to see Ty play so well. I actually know that song and love it! I don't know any other Nirvana songs but I saw someone do that on a show a few years ago and it stuck with me.

The little guys are getting so big! What fun. I cannot wait until my GD is born.

Thanks for your birthday wishes!
