In a corner of our family room we’ve set up a play area for the grandkids. They head right to it when they come to our house because they know they have fun there. We try to keep it stocked with interesting things to do.
When I saw this project in Curiosities & Mischief by Nancy Halverson, I loved it! and knew it was the perfect addition to the play space decor. My two other quilt projects were set to the side and this little one squeezed in instead.
This time of year its easy to be sidetracked anyway. It is finally nice outside and we’d rather be out there instead of in here. Sunday Mr. Sunshine had a great time with the grandkids and the wheelbarrow. Reminds me of him with our kids when they were little.
I’m almost half way into a new book, Eighty-Days by Matthew Goodman. It’s a true story about Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland, two women news writers in the late 1800’s, who raced around the world in different directions. It is really good. I have a hard time putting it down and take it with me everywhere I go. Not necessarily because of the suspense of the race…but its fun to read because its a good story and well written.
But if you know who won…don’t tell me… ☺
