There are so many things going on right now. It’s summertime and the living is crazy!!! Of course, this is the busiest time of the year for DH, which means that I am pretty busy, too!! But there is also a lot of upcoming events – work for the other two bosses, family reunions, time with friends, vacation and, most importantly, quilts that need to be finished!!

I am hoping to get this flimsy loaded onto the Fun Quilter and get the quilting done:

This was a disappearing nine patch that I did in April 2012. It’s time to be finished!! I know that I want to do an edge to edge flower pattern for the quilting. I just need to get going! Where’s the motivation I need to do this!?! I know, I’ll call my QFFs and see if they can help motivate me!!

Speaking of QFFs, I meant to share this:

The last time Barb was here, she brought this cute little box for me. I love it!! I can keep some of the smaller notions in it and it has a design that I just love!! She also included a piece of fabric inside the box. It is covered with quilt acronyms like: S.T.A.S.H – Special Treasures All Secretly Hidden and (one that applies to me) S.A.B.L.E. – Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy!!

Thanks Barb!

I also wanted to give a big Thank you to Bev and Barb together. They generously shared from their stashes so that I could have a big variety of Cheddar fabrics for the Blue and Cheddar quilt. This is one of the reasons you are my QFFs, you help me out when I have a need. I am so pleased with the way the quilt is turning out – all the variety of cheddar makes it gorgeous!!

Recently I’ve been having a sewing buddy every now and again.

This is Lewis. His human is DS#3. Lewis comes to visit with Mimi and Papaw whenever DS#3 has plans that keep him away from home for a long period of time.

Oh, and I wanted to share this, too:

My cousin, Don, stopped by on his way home from his vacay to pick up the Steelers quilt that I had made. He had asked for this and paid for the materials, so that he could have one. Even though the photo is a little fuzzy, I think you can tell that he is happy with it.

Well, it’s taken me all morning to get my random thoughts recorded here. I guess I ought to try and get some other things taken care of today.

Peace
