and I'm still here! I'm fully recovered from my bout with strep, thanks for all the well wishes! It's been crazy busy here, preparing for all of the graduation events for our girls...Ellen is graduating high school and Grace is graduating 8th grade in the next few weeks. One of the graduation quilts is bound....the binding is made for the other, but not on yet. I pulled a two yard piece of fabric from the stash to make binding and for some reason decided that I needed ALL of it to bind these two quilts. After doing one, I'm quite certain I'll be able to bind 4 or 5 more quilts with this binding...two yards goes a long way!
I decided to clean out some scraps for the back of these quilts, so here's the back for quilt #1. Quilt #2 is equally busy!
After busting all this stash, it was time to buy a few things to brighten up my collection. Pictures of those soon...I washed them and need to iron them.
On Saturday we had our first work meeting for Canoe Carnival...August 2nd is the date this year and it will come quickly. Our theme is decided, construction is planned and we'll actually start building on Saturday. This year the boss is the group captain. Our other fearless leader will be heading to Iraq in August, but leaves for training on June 10th. He'll be deployed to Iraq for 400 days. His son will also be deployed to Iraq in the fall. If you can, please say a prayer for their safety and for the safe return of all of our soldiers.
