For Mom...

This post is for my mom...who pointed out that I haven't posted for awhile. I just haven't had anything to post! I haven't picked up a needle in weeks, I've been working a lot, but most of my time has been spent cleaning and getting ready for Andrew's graduation party/Fourth of July party on Saturday. It just goes to show...you really shouldn't ONLY clean when you're having a party, especially if you haven't had a real party in years!

When we bought our house, there was an empty lot behind us. A few years ago, a house was built on the lot, which meant it was time to do something with our yard. Never did it...but with this party, it was time to do something. So, we started with this yesterday morning...



















Then the Hartford Gardens crew showed up and now we have this...



And this...

Which has led to this...

And this...














Life is good....

Quilting?

Yes, this really is a quilting blog, not that you'd know it lately! Just a peek at what I've been doing...


I quilted 12 quilts for Camp Reach for the Sky, for Rosie's Calico Cupboard. The quilts will go to children who are battling cancer and their siblings.






















The boss and I attended a local quilt show at Kirby's Mill. The Mill was beautiful...


And we've prepared one of our canoes for this year's Canoe Carnival. We'll begin building the elements for the float this week!







Grace update...she's seeing the orthopedic doctor next Tuesday. She wasn't supposed to see him until the 25th, but his office called today. It seems the doctor was looking at his schedule, saw she had a torn ACL and decided she really shouldn't wait that long...so he had his office call to get her in sooner. I'm impressed.
