I've had three quilts that I need to get done by the end of the school year. One black and gold hexie quilt is finished.
And another black and gold hexie quilt has the top all sewn together, but I need to piece the back and get it quilted and bound.
I've had lots of help with the quilts though.
Anson loves anything with buttons which unfortunately means he wants my sewing machine...especially if he can play with my machine while sitting on my lap.
He also LOVES the basting spray can because of the little button inside that you push to make the spray come out. No more basting quilts while Anson is awake for me. (This picture was taken in the ten seconds he was actually happy between being given the can and realizing that he couldn't get the lid off to get to the button.)
We've also been doing The Big Sort for our most recent I-Spy Swap. Becca has always loved helping me sort the squares.
But she's also been revealing herself as a true fabric addict...she wants all the fabric scraps...especially the ones she calls "open books" the little folded piece of 4'' strip left from the middle of the fabric when I cut out my swap squares. She's carried this little stack around with her all over...to church (leaving them in the car), around the house, and puts them under her bed at night when she sleeps.
We've also been working a lot on our yard. It's too bad we don't have a before picture, because then you could really see the improvement. The yard still has a long way to go, but it's beginning to look presentable. We've got flowers and shrubs along the front.
We're building a fence of sorts to support grapes. (Still in progress.)
And in kindergarten programs and baseball two nights a week progress on everything has been slow.
Please show my sponsors some love...
