The Sky Jump And A Blog Hop Is Coming

I spent a little time away from sewing this week to play with the Monkey Boys and to watch 
my daughter take a HUGE jump from the Las Vegas Stratosphere for the Boy Scouts.

The Sky Jump is 829 feet from the top to the bottom...crazy!

She's up there. I chose to stay at the bottom.

She was pretty excited about this jump. Me...not so much. 
The Boy Scouts even gave her a trophy.
They would have to give me a whole lot more to take that jump!


In other creative and less heart stopping news...

The Tea For Two blog hop starts this week

Madame Samm has us stitching for this one and Mary at Needled Mom is cheering us on.
It will be amazing, I'm sure!

  1. That's what you get for teaching your daughter to be fearless in life. Looking forward to seeing all the great stitching next week. I opted out of that blog due to a broken thumb....pretty hard to hold a hoop.

  3. Never, never, never will I do that. I have a friend who has an aunt who sky dived at 80. It makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! :) blessings, marlene

  5. I went parasailing in Mexico when I was in my 20's, but no way would I ever be able to jump off a building. She' one brave cookie, for sure.

  10. What a trooper your daughter is. I like my feet on the ground. I'm sure the blog hop will be great. I love handwork but I don't have much time to do it. I miss doing the hops with Mdm Samm but I just can't commit to a hand stitching blog hop all the time. Once in a while is good but my heart is in quilt piecing and quilting instead.
