A Little Sunshine

Does this not just brighten your day? What a sweetie.

For more pictures of Jacob, go to Lydia's pictures. There are also some neat snow pictures there too.

I'm getting myself all prepared for the Friday Night Sew-In. There are 182 people signed up. The good thing is, if you don't show up, nobody's going to come looking for you. I wish I had to time to go to some of these web sites and see what they're doing. There are a lot of talented people. Maybe some of it will rub off on me.

I went to the Grand Opening! of JoAnn Fabrics yesterday and once more ran into someone I knew. I guess if I ever get lonely, I'll go there and be sure to see someone to talk to. This was Barbara, and she's not even from Montgomery. She was there with her cousin Judy, and we were able to have a long and serious discussion about interfacings and pattern tracing. It's a new shiny store, and they had lots of yarn and crafty things, but it seemed not that much fabric. I'm not sure what the love affair with fleece is, but it seems like half of any fabric store's inventory the last few years is fleece. I mean, this is the south. How much fleece do people actually wear/use? I'll be back again and can look around more. In fact, I still have a handful of half-price coupons that it's a shame to waste, even if they just get used on needles and thread.

The sunshine is nice and cheerful today for a change. Maybe we can start to get hopeful about spring.


  1. You are too sweet! Thanks for showing off my little man! ;-)

  2. Oh my goodness!! is rainy/snowy/gloomy here in the midwest and I had a wonderful and shocking surprise when I checked in on your blog! How entertaining and delightful for the couldn't possibly have realized how much sunshine it would send this way! You are such a special person! Hugs from Kansas..(I have a JoAnn's here too..if you and Lydia will drop by we will see how much fleece is there!)

  3. He just makes me happy!

    Melissa, I would like nothing better than to take a day trip to Kansas - or Texas - or Washington, fabric shops or not. Maybe soon we'll be changing places, and you'll be back in the SE and me in the midwest. Hopefully it won't be long before you get to have some Mimi-Jabob (and Lydia!) time.

  4. Lydia: Are you Jacob´s mom? Debby´s grandchild? or is another Jacob?; Sorry, I´m confused.

    This little boy is really lovely, he has an angel face. He is very handsome and cute.
    How old is he in this picture?

  5. Everyone would like to claim him, Gaby. Sorry for not being clear. Jacob is the son of Lydia and Tommy and grandson of Melissa (Mimi), all of whom are friends.

    Debby (my cousin) has the older grandson, also named Jacob, whose pictures I had last week (and who is getting along amazingingly well).

  6. Hi,Great picture of Jacob so cute. Next time you are interested in some fabric come to Columbus,Ga
    we have several fabric and quilt shops here plus a quilt shop in Ellerslie,Ga called Sunday Best Quiltworks.
    So glad Debby's son Jacob is doing well. Take Care Barbara

  7. So Barbara, I looked up that quilt shop, and it's 2 miles from where we lived in Midland. It's kind of out in the middle of nowhere, isn't it? I guess it's a good thing it wasn't there then! The only places we had then were Sew Much Fun and Hancock Fabrics. I miss Columbus.
