The Slow Stitching Continues

I made more progress on my stitch-a-long this week.  I finished the second swan and continued stitching on clue #1 (the center peacock.)

I found this mystery stitch along on facebook.  You can get the free pattern here.

It's called the Mystery Sampler Stitch A Long (2019) at Linen & Threads.

Opening day was last weekend for our baseball league.  I haven't been taking my stitching along with me due to the fact that my little ham wants my full attention--and that's ok!  We waited so long to have a child.  We have been blessed.  My stitching can wait.

My guy is the happy tall one in the photo below.

Here's a pic of the whole team:

Orphan Block H2H and May OMG Quilt Finish

I finished this orphan block quilt for H2H.  It's a happy little quilt!

This quilt will be going to Jack's Basket charity.  This charity celebrates children born with Down Syndrome.  Quilt guildlines says the quilt is to be 36" square.  This quilt measures 36" x 42".  I hope they can find the right family to give it to.  Our son just happens to have DS.  He was a bigger baby at 7lb., 6oz.  I know that this quilt would have been perfect for him.

I'm happy to report that this was also my OMG (One Main Goal) project for May.  Woohoo!

Opening Day

Yesterday was opening day for our Challenger baseball team.  Here's some pics from my phone:

He LOVES eating outside.  This inspired our family picnic on the ping pong table at dinner that night.

2019  It was a breezy, but beautiful sunny day for baseball today.

He's very independent now.

Exceptional Olympics

Here are a bunch of pictures from last Friday, May 10, of the Exceptional Olympics.  Our son loved the sports and mascots -- and friends!  I hope he didn't offend the Cardinal when he called it the "Big Red Chicken" (a character he remembers from watching Dora the Explorer.)

Although there were 643 athletes with all different abilities from area schools in our county, our son is the ONLY student from our district.  It took a while to get him to be able to go.  Next year we hope to have our mascot there as well. 

 Our district is still represented!

These are Owen's very exceptional teachers.  They teacher on the left with the red hair is the teacher that left him go to this event last year for the first time.  She goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching.  She doesn't just teach reading and math.  She may be the best teacher he has had yet.  She has such a kind heart and gives it her all.

The teacher on the right will be his teacher next year.  I have high hopes that she will be very helpful during his transition to middle school.  I'm a little nervous, but we will embrace each day as it comes.

This is Austin (orange shirt) and Owen.  They are baseball buddies.  Below they are walking off into the sunset... to get some lunch.  They both have the same love of food!

Owen and his ONE person spot!

He was super excited to be on the giant screen.

Even kneeling, the Hoover Viking was taller than the others.

More fun with mascots.

H2H -- Moving One Forward...and to the Finish!

I moved this little quilt forward today.  This weekend I reworked the bottom row of quilting that had loopies on the back from the thread jumping the guide (without me knowing about it) on the longarm.  I fixed that part, made the binding, and it's done!

I'm linking up with Em at Em's Scrap Bag for Moving it Forward Monday here.
