What I have been UP to...

In between rain showers/thunderstorms, I have so far this week....





Pin basted quilts. I have 3 done (but only pictures of 2 of them). Now to get onto quilting them.




I think it has stormed every afternoon/evening so far this week - last night we were caught in a torrential downpour while at 4-H. That was fun....





Hopefully my 30's pinwheels will be ready to be basted by the end of this weekend...hopefully.




Now we are off to the Town & Country days as our kids and the babysitter's kids decorated a float to ride on in the parade - should be fun...




And Jessie has had 2 physical therapy appts. this week - she is walking somewhat better, but still doesn't have much strength in that leg. Which also meant we had to go shopping for tennis shoes as both kids outgrew their shoes - her physical therapist said absolutely, positively no flip flops or crocs - UGH - 2 little kids (one who can't walk very well) in an outlet mall - it was not fun.



Have a good evening everyone,


Kris

It is raining here today! I hope it stops before tomorrow, we are having Hunter's birthday party outside. Can't wait to see how your quilting turns out. What type of machine do you have??

I think the worst part of quilting is the basting part and you did 3 of them. That is wonderful. I wish it would rain here. Send some rain our way. :o)

You have been busy with all that basting! Can't wait to see how they all turn out. Glad to hear that the physiotherapy is helping with Jessies leg. Enjoy the parade!

You've pinned three quilts! I can only do one at a time as my back gives way half way through.
Hope you enjoy the parade.

Love and hugs xxx

Seeing all of those pins---ugh, not my favorite part. But they look wonderful even with all of the pins!

I am so impressed with your progress!! you are a quilting machine! and I love, love, love the pink log cabin, lucky Jessie!

two kids in a shoe store are a piece of cake,,,try eight, with wheel chairs, oxygen tanks, apnea monitors, and three 12-year-olds,,,,and smile while you're at it. LOL
