Symmetry

G designed this several weeks ago when Grammie was here. He picked the fabrics. She did the cutting. He did the arranging. She helped him do the sewing.

He designed the entire quilt on the diagonal by himself. As he picked and placed and rearranged the squares he kept saying, “Look, Grammie. It’s symmetrical.”

The boy likes patterns and symmetry . . . he isn’t nearly as concerned about the actual fabric colors and prints . . .

Gotta love a boy who isn’t afraid to play with fabric.

Cheers,

Her First Recital

R had her first piano recital this evening. It was held at an old Baptist church with beautiful stained glass windows . . . about thirty kids played various instruments or sang. R played “Money Can’t Buy Everything” (Alfred).

She played in front of about 175 people.

She played flawlessly.

She even earned herself a trophy.

We are so proud of her!

And she is proud of herself . . . rightfully so.

And while we are on the topic of our girl child . . . this picture was taken on Halloween.

She is beautiful. I know, I know . . . I’m slightly biased . . . but wow.

Proud Mama,
D
