This and that on a Tuesday...

 Remember I mentioned back in Oct. that DGS L probably would be Curious George for Halloween? Well, Thomas the Train won out..gosh, he's getting so tall !
 And I mentioned that Baby AJ would probably be wearing the Tigger costume? Nope, he's his own little pumpkin seed instead! He's 5 months now, and going strong. I got to see both boys at my surprise birthday party back on Oct. 9th...*VBS*
 Once again Finn is "a glowin' and a goin'" with a lovely box of orphan blocks and spare parts from Em. Lots of really good stuff in this box!!! The Orphan Train thanks you and so do I...thanks again Em, I'm delighted to have new stuff to play with.
 
Had lunch with Betsy last week and came home with a few orphan blocks. She often has scraps, cuttings and strips for me and occasionally, orphans. I was pleased to get them, as well as a bag of selvedges.
The "situation" seems to have quieted down abit since Sunday, altho a couple more challengees have signed on, and one or two more donations quilts have been pledged. Today I'd love to direct you to pop over to the Magpie's Nest and see what Sue has to say about her recent experience with an ancient UFO. It's very insightful and well worth your time to read. Be sure and look at the blocks she pulled out for her 15 minutes of play...those are in her previous post, called The First Act of Avoidance. I had almost the same experience with Y2K siggy blocks back in October.

You are so welcome. Glad they have found a good home. Your grandson's looks adorable in their costumes.

Those two GKs are both adorable! And your 'orphans' and new goodies are too. :)

Look at that little cutie. And what a great haul in bits and scraps.

As to quieting down, I'm betting everyone is so busy working on their projects, they don't have time to be commenting.

Now working on #2 SBS quilt. It's pinned and half quilted. Hoping to have it finished by tomorrow afternoon. Hugs
