One whole week!

One whole week with no post and one more week of school and the kids are off for the summer. Yikes! Where has the time gone this year?

I have been avoiding the sewing room... since I have been trying to avoid some quilting. But... it needs to get done so today is the day to start. I have three stars outlined on the Hunter Star quilt... and lots to go. So if you hear a lot of muttering today and tomorrow - that is me pulling and tugging the twin size quilt around and under my little sewing machine.


Yesterday was spent attending an awards ceremony at school. Aidan made all E honor roll (exceeds expectation) and was awarded the Golden Bear award for the male in his classroom by his teacher. Quite an honor. Tomorrow night is Emily's bridging ceremony to 1st grade.... and we will be missing the kids soccer awards ceremony to attend the school function. Yesterday after awards and then a quick shopping trip I got wrapped up in resting with lots of water while watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix. Too much sun Monday and not enough liquids although it seemed like I was drinking enough water. The Florida sun and humidity does not mix well with me! I started watching Greys last week and I'm almost through season 2. I swear - it is addicting and I really need to go to sleep before midnight tonight =). Time to take the garbage and recycling out and then back to tugging and pulling that quilt under the machine.

  3. Congrats to your kids :) I love the outline around the hunter star blocks. It's a great accent. Good luck with the tugging and pulling. I also have to stop procrastinating on some quilting. It isn't a large project, but the "medium to dense" quilting requested has me spooked. It's outside of my comfort zone.

  4. Congratulations to your kiddos. I can't even imagine trying to wrestle with that quilt ... but it'll be worth it when you're done, I'm sure of that. My daughter is a Gray's Anatomy addict, too. I've been tempted to start watching it, but the last thing I need is another addiction/distraction. ;-)

  5. Congratulations young man. A wonderful effort indeed. I've given up trying to quilt anything larger than a bay quilt.

  6. Ah congrats to the kids! :) That's why I hand quilt anything bigger than a pillow top. I don't think my neck and shoulders like machine quilting. My hat's off to you...I hope that you win the wrestling match! :)
