"Roxy, get your bag packed! You are going with me!!!!"



Roxy fits nicely into a fun purple carry on bag that Sean bought for our trip to Seattle. The beautiful thing about this is that the suitcase is $50.00 instead of $200.00 that Janome wants.....HINT IF YOU ARE MONEY SAVVY!!!!!

So, I arrived at the dodgeball arena last night looking for plugs. Noah was relieved when I promised I would keep Roxy in the car until I found a hidden spot to play in.... I knew I was in for the long haul with him practicing for 2 hours then league lasting up to 3 hours.....

Below is a photo of Noah at the pep rally for the Seattle soccer game soon to ensue. He and I joke that we need to put a little notebook in his chess carrying case (looks like a violin case) and have people he plays sign there name and date it. First Jim in San Diego and now Ed and Bruce in Seattle. Noah was tickled when Ed who was a homeless gentleman approached asking NOah if he plays. You should have seen his look of surprise when Noah asked him to play a game with him. His stories were wonderFULL!




I am so excited that Roxy and I are nearly done with this piece and how flat the back is turning out and all those yummy stitches!!!!!! Dodgeball+ Chess at soccer rally+ Roxy exploring new territory= LOVE FOR FAMILY AND HOBBY ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

Love, Em

1. Need a photo of the fun purple bag . . .

2. You need to keep a roster of where all Roxy travels with your quilting. What a treasure to savor looking back.

I don't know why the thought of a dodgeball ARENA tickles me, but it does! lol
It seems that Noah's heart is as big as YOURS! I think that's a cool idea, to have an "autograph book" for his game opponents. :D

The quilt is looking quite spectacular!

I love hearing about your and your family's wonderfilled adventures. Roxy's doing a great job on the quilt! and if you or Roxy ever swing through the Chicago area, give a call! I'll find a plug for her! :)
