Superman Wears Cowboy Boots in Texas

This is not a picture from Halloween, it is just a little dress up play with the cutest grandchild in the world. We just returned from a trip to Texas.

We spent a few days in a beautiful log home on the lower Colorado River in the Texas hill country, located about an hour northwest of Austin.

The weather was beautiful, the water warm enough to swim in.

We had four generations on this trip, we were very happy to have great grandma come along.
We spent lots of time outside on the porch, visiting, reading, the fishermen in the group got in some fishing,
and of coarse playing with our grandson.

I frequently found time on the swing to get some stitching time on the Civil War Bride quilt.

We went back home to Houston for a few more days with my son’s family. I can not believe I did not get a picture but the Texas bluebonnets and other wild flowers were blooming all along the highways, it was just gorgeous.

In Houston I did manage to visit a few of the quilt shops during the spring shop hop. I resisted the temptation of getting the Friends of Baltimore patterns, they are still only available as a block of the month, it will be next year before you can purchase all the patterns together. At this time I want to focus on some finishes of the current quilts I am working on, so for now I am remaining disciplined. Today I am unpacking, doing laundry, and sadly putting our summer clothes away in the back of the closet because this is what is going on in Nebraska…

Happy Stitching,



  1. Wow, what a difference! A rather 'cold' homecoming! But it is always nice to be home again too. I love the place you were staying in in Texas too!!!

  2. What a great place to vacation!! Your little superman is adorable!! Of course he would wear cowboy boots....all super heros do ya know LOL.


  3. Cheri,
    I am so happy that you all had such a grand time in Texas. Yes, the wildflowers are just beautiful this time of year. One of my favorite seasons. Last year was the best year for wildflowers, in 20 years. Hugs to you and your family.
    Don't worry, I will be in envy of your cooler weather in Nebraska in a few months time.
