Monday Meanderings

Whee! What a weekend.  Or at least one day of the weekend. It proved I'm not a 30 OR 40 year old something  any more.  Our granddaughter's birthday was yesterday so the big celebration was at a waterpark.  It's actually a pretty amazing smaller water park about an hour and a quarter from our house. Slides, fountains, and a lazy river in which to enjoy a day of fun, sun and water.  My big thing was the lazy river which wasn't as lazy as it might have been.  Natalie the bd girl had a lot of fun doing all sorts of things.  Ellie and Sophie were doing the things they liked best.  Darling (or need I say daring) Theo was a real risk taker -- better described as going off in the lazy river by himself without telling us -- a couple of times.  EEK.  He's almost 5.  Wait til he's 16! Double EEK! 

I actually got a lot of quilting/sewing progress this week, just not yesterday.  (Did I mention the part it was about 1 hour 10 minutes away?  And it took us 2 1/2 hours to get home? Yea, the not fun part.) Anyway,  let's look at the goals list from last week: 


Sew Positivity blocks together

Make a few Ombre log cabin blocks 

Quilt another quilt

Cut out customer’s quilt (nothing done...) 

Knit on baby blanket 

Here's the top I quilted still on Ruthie, the long arm.  I actually loaded 2+ yards of fabric and quilted two small quilts. (This is the second strippy-style quilt I made from one yard of fabric.) 

Here's what I hope to accomplish this week:


Make July Table runner

Knit on baby blanket

Cut out customer blocks & begin sewing 

Attend quilt guild’s open sew — make patriotic happy blocks. 

I sure hope I can get all that done this week. 

One last comment on the travel time from the water park.  Within 3 miles of our house this happened...

What????  Crazy geese. Are Canadian geese still on the endangered species list?  Because every place I've lived in the last 20 years or so there have been an overabundance of them.

I'm linking to my regular linky parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday, and To Do Tuesday. Have fun checking out a bunch of blogs! 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. I think that Canada geese are protected but not endangered. They are a PITA around here........Happy birthday to Ms. Natalie! You didn't say if you and Pat went into the water!....Have a great quilty week.

    1. Ahh.... we did! I upheld our honor by going down one of the high tube slides.... and felt every joint on my back! :-O

  2. Theo is going to keep his parents on their toes! Canada geese love the golf courses, and do they ever make a mess. Have fun working on your goals this week.

  3. canada geese poop one pound per day per goose...they make an awful mess...

  4. You are very generous grandparents to make that waterpark journey! Glad it was a good time for all. I've not seen canadian geese here, but the seagulls (flying rats) sure make plenty of mess.

  5. We certainly have a lot of geese still. Well that's a total bummer it took so long to get to the water park, road construction and detours?

  6. Hi Bonnie! Sounds like a happy week in quilt land!!!

  7. Sounds like a fabulous day at the waterpark and Happy Birthday to your sweet granddaughter. Such a sweet quilt you worked on this week. Happy quilting
