The Wedding Quilt is finished!

Ok - it took me a while on the binding but it is done and labeled. Just need to go get some color catchers and wash it them mail it off to it's new owners.

As this is a birds in the air block, I had a thought on the way to work on Saturday and was smart enough to write it down at a red light. 'May you always fly together through the ups and downs in life'. I added it to the label of the quilt here.


It has been an extremely hectic week around here. Work issues - don't you love when employees just don't show for work or call in? Hopefully that situation has resolved itself with a blessing of a new hire walking in Monday, interview yesterday and was hired on the spot. Thank goodness life tends to work itself out when you really need it to. I had a girl scout meeting Monday night (ran late so I left early) and tonight. Open house at school for Emily last night and Aidan on Thursday night. School pictures on Thursday so we snuck in hair cuts yesterday afternoon before homework. Friday I am working and Grandma is picking up the kids from School. Saturday - wish us luck on the flights as it will be me and the two kiddo's heading north. That leaves today to finish dealing with the fruit fly infestation and a total clean up of the house. The garden prep is going to wait until I get back but I do hope to throw some weed block down over the part I have not got to yet. I am looking forward to some relaxing stitches at bowling on Thursday morning as that might be the only stitching I get this week. I need to prep some hand work for next week as well..... I'm off to make my list of things to get done today so I can get busy checking them off!
