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.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
