A great fun weekend

We took the kids up to ride the Polar Express this weekend. It was a blast. We actually had to make the reservations for this in May. They are so popular that every Saturday in December for next year is already booked. I think that we are going to try to go in either January or November next year since my brother's wedding is in December and the date is not set in stone yet. This is a picture of my husband and son, my son had a blast he has really been into trains lately. It is amazing to me how much enjoyment there is in watching your kids have fun.

In quilting news I am working on making up another string quilt for my sister's baby that is due next month. The shower is at the end of this month and I should have this quilt done with time to spare. I am also working on a mystery quilt for my guild and have completed the first two clues. I have never done a mystery quilt before and I think that this should be fun. I am doing it scrappy and it looks cute. I have added a picture for you to see, this is clue one and two. I have decided that I am in a scrappy phase of my quilting since any new projects that I am starting are scrappy. The frugality of using up what I have appeals to me, as well as the fact that these projects seem to be so much quicker since the cutting is already done because I use Bonnie's scrap user's system.

I am reading On the Run by Iris Johansen. I have read several of her other books and they are all good action/suspense/romance books. This one is turning out to be enjoyable also.
