Finally...some finishes!

It has been a whole week since I blogged last. What a whirlwind around our house since hubby was in the hospital. The last week has been spent trying to get caught up on laundry, shopping, cleaning, etc. Plus we finally got rain and hot, humid temps, so you know what that means...weeds and mowing. We have 5 acres, but we only mow about 2 of them....a local farm uses the rest for either hay or corn. That is still a lot to mow. Thank goodness our kids and grandkids have been helping out also!
BUT....while you sit in a hospital room and watch hubby watch TV, this is what you get done. (minus the borders, which were done at home). I want to pick out a really bright fabric for the August stitchery....i think, oranges, yellows with maybe a pink

We'll see what I can find up at a fantastic quilt shop by the lake where we will be for the next few days. Nautical Needle has everything I love....I will try to maintain my composure, but it has been a while since I have been in a quilt shop

This little baby is what I am taking with me. I really love the way it sews and is so light weight to carry around. I just purchased it on the advice of a friend, and am glad I did. We have a screened in porch and I think that is where I will be "set up". Have a good weekend and see you back here on Monday or Tuesday with "hopefully" some more finishes, or at least some starts.

Well I've been there and done that. Lots of stitching can get done sitting in a waiting room chair. :-)
Lovely blocks!
