The Boys Are Back In Town

Have you seen this pattern?

It is by Just Another Button Company and is free with the purchase of the button pack. It can be found at several ONS or at your local shop. Just too cute!
Next Friday is Relay and is the debut of the tree. If you don't know what I am talking about you must be living in outer space because it has consumed me for the past year. Check out my SFAC blog link located on the right side of my blog for my final countdown.
I have committed to another Relay For Life at the end of April. I am going to do a quilt and will be offering up squares on my SFAC blog for anyone who wants to stitch one of nine squares. Check it out in November for details.
As for me, I am holding on. My MIL is doing better, but still has not been able to get any real financial help. SSI is still pending and food stamps said since she worked some last month she is not eligible for emergency food stamps. Crazy. She didn't earn enough before she got sick to hardly make a living and they want to deny her now?
My DD and grandsons are coming next weekend to help me with Relay. I can't wait to see them. I told the oldest I was going to give him lots of wet kisses. He hesitated and I said "how about a big hug instead?" That seemed acceptable to him. He is 7 and the other one is 5. Soon they won't want hugs or kisses at all. They grow up so, so fast!
Hope this fall is finding you all well. Thank you for following my little blog!

That is an adorable pattern!! I am glad to hear that your MIL is doing better. I understand about the food stamps, their policies are just crazy and stupid!!! I will be looking for your info about the squares for the quilt because I just might have to stitch one for you!!

Yep, they do grow up fast! I guess I'm lucky in that my teen nieces and nephew still give me hugs with smiles on their faces :D

Good luck with your tree. I can't wait to hear how well it goes over. :) You've put a lot of hard work into that project, for sure!

Glad to hear your MIL is doing better but sorry that she isn't able to get the help she needs. It's so wrong!
So looking forward to seeing the tree. Also curious about your next Relay plans. :0)

I love it!

Your blog is new to me, and I am in love with it.

Everytime I stop by I think the world would be a better place if we all had a friend like you in our lives :)
