End of Week Fun

This week hasn't been too bad - although there is still today and tonight to get through.

I'm still catching up on sleep after working last weekend - amazing how much you can miss a weekend at home doing your own thing (or your family's thing!).

Although I did buy this cute quilt at the Peace Auction that was had at work - $7.


As Todd said - what do you need with another quilt, especially one you did not make yourself? It was for a good cause, and as the new secretary for the District, I felt like I should support the district's peace efforts at our conference last weekend.

I did get another table topper top sewn together - unfortunately, I did not make it to the 5 by the end of July. Rather 4 1/2. Oh well. And since I would rather quilt stuff than piece it, I'll get the quilting done this weekend.
The kids go back to school on the 18th - hard to believe just a little over 2 weeks to go. Actually, I cannot wait for them to go back. Maybe then my house will stay reasonably clean?

Well, that's 4 1/2 more than I got done in July. Or the last 7 years or so, for that matter ;) You do beautiful work! Someday I'd like to get back into quilting.

Hope you manage to get all the things you wanted to do over the summer done in the next 2 weeks. Your July has been most productive!

4 1/2 is very impressive, I don't think I actually finished anything in July.
