It is so quiet here today with no one home, but me. My parents had been visiting for the past 2 weeks which has been really great. I was fortunate to get 90% of that entire time off to really enjoy spending time with them. Mom and I sewed a bunch of projects - I finished my very first clothing item! Wow. Sewing clothing is ridiculously hard, but I *think* I like it. Mom also finished up about 4 Single Girl blocks (which I have yet to photograph). She never sits still. I think I might have to sleep for about 3 weeks to catch up! Mom gave me the inspiration to complete the quilting on Cohen's baby quilt. I love how it turned out! I went with wavy-ish straight lines which were pretty dense. I prefer the dense quilting to spread out. I don't know why..?...

We were able to take in a Diamondbacks game which was super duper fun! We actually won that game, but had lost the 3 previous games to the Dodgers.
|Chase Field even had the top open. Pretty.|
|Mom and Dad enjoying the game - much different than the Reno Aces games!|
|Hubby and me enjoying the scene. I love this man.|
|Cohen at 10 weeks. Love this little dude.|
While we were in Reno, my brother and I got in a good run. It was cool because it started raining (nice change of pace from Phoenix) and it was a difficult run for me with all the hills AND the elevation. Reminded me that I am a fatty and I need to start working out some more. I really miss running with him, definitely my favorite running buddy for sure.
We also took hubby up to Lake Tahoe, he had never been before. It was snowing the entire way up the mountain which was pretty scary because I was afraid the roads would be icy, but we made it!

|I love Lake Tahoe <3 <3 <3 <3|
I finished my May dGS blocks for Kelli! She had requested framed patchwork blocks in bright and fun colors. This block was a breeze and I loved making it completely from scraps. I am excited to see what she comes up with for her quilt!
|Kelli's super fun and really easy framed patchwork blocks for dGS!|
