Goals:  I will have grandsons again this month plus may be going to Provo to help out with a new granddaughter so I need to be careful here.  Not too much and if it doesn't happen, oh well.  I am also out of batting so unless a sale hits, I may need to do some revising here.

1st - Another month?  Oh my.  2014 is just flying by.  Does anyone agree?  I am spending my morning getting this blog current and then Mister and I are meeting our nephew for lunch in Uptown.  We will top off the evening with a date night at the Wylie Theater.  It is Les Miserables night and I am excited.  No sewing today.

2nd - Gratitude is finished!  The binding went well and I am oh so pleased with this one.  I take a break, grab some quilt books and start the hunt for inspiration on the last two grands quilts that I need to do.  I select Old Kentucky Album (OKA) and Nifty Thrifty (NT) and then also decide to make a second Nifty Thrifty for a local shop.  We'll see how it goes.  Wish me luck and oh yeah --- the time to get it made.
