I've gotten some great fabric lately, on sale as well:
I think these fabrics will make a wonderful 9 patch quilt.....I found some cream at the local quilt shop, on sale.....so......I should be all set. Of course, Jessie saw them and wants a new quilt for her bed. Apparently the flip flop quilt and the lots of boxes quilt that are in progress are too bright for her now!
I realized yesterday morning that I did not put a label on the quilt for Tyler's teacher! So I quick did this one and hand sewed it to the back of the quilt before going to the party.
Which she loved the quilt! What a relief. I'm always worried that someone will not love a present I make as much as I do.
I don't think we have ANY plans for the weekend - other than soccer and the kids have a birthday party to go to on Sunday.
Jessie got accepted for the summer enrichment program sponsored by our local college. It's only for 2-3 weeks the end of July/beginning of August, I think, but we have to pick out her classes now (they can take 3). One of the classes is for math, but it's somehow connected to the Civil War Underground railroad and making the quilt blocks that people used as signals. She thought that one sounded cool, and there was one for science and birds. After I talked to her teacher (to see if anyone else from her class was going - thinking carpooling) she was the only one from her class to get accepted. Which she is apparently fine going off by herself for the time and meeting new people, but this is also going to put a crimp into the summer camps she wants to go to. I haven't mentioned the summer camp dilema to her yet - the enrichment program is WAY cheaper than summer camp:)
Other than that, it has just been the usual here. Waiting for the rain to dry up - if it would just come down at once we'd be fine - but no.....we get a little here, a little there.......ugh.
Have a great weekend!
