Waka Waka eh eh

well, I ‘ve got world cup fever and i am not even a soccer fan.  But the music is inspiring me to take an interest….

Kazu in a pyramid

most recent quilt...

the neighbor lady has been bugging me for years for a quilt… and she is truly quilt-worthy… it seems that she is around when my kids need medical assistance (and my husband is off somewhere in the car) so she has taken us to emergency rooms and follow up care more times than i can count.  She and i exchange furniture, cloth and food…. she is a really amazing neighbor… so she and i pieced together a bunch of 6 inch squares… and i took 5 blocks she pieced together (a long time ago) and surrounded them with gray and now i am stitching and embellishing….trying to finish before the humidity and heat of rainy season (supposed to start tomorrow….

all quilts must have a moon and star!!

and just for fun, i decided to use some batting to quilt up some squares….. using nice small quilting stiches and some simple embellishment to create  a  14 x 14 inch square….

turtle, stars,moon and UMI (ocean )

turtle and waves...just keep on swimming

this weekend is the all jr high sports tournament…. saturday i will go and watch Kazu’s (last) ping-pong match….. (because he is a ninth grader and soon done with club so that he can concentrate on studying for high school entrance examinations)….and Kayla’s first judo match…. I can’t wait to see her fight and hope that she wins!!!!! She is in the up to 44 kg. group and but only weighs 38 kg……waka waka eh eh!!

    Your work is so pretty! I didn’t know Kayla did judo! Sebastian does too! He loves it… in fact we have turned half of our living room into a judo arena! We have wall to wall mats there and the kids love it. It goes well under the hammock and swing that we already had there. 😀 Wishing her great luck at the tounament! Sebastian will be battling it out then too. Judo is a fantastic sport. It is funny how they can be matched up with kids much heavier or more advanced. Sebastian had to fight kids with green belts when he was then just yellow.
    Happy day!
