Tuesday's Two Things

Just a quick post this morning because we have some fun plans for the remainder of the week...

Did I meet my goals from last week???

   Acquire border and backing fabric for the commissioned quilt. 

The fabric was delivered just yesterday.  Isn't is pretty? >>

   Finalize the next Pieces From the Past pattern release on June 18.

The post for The Friendship Block (#8) is ready to go live on Thursday.  In addition to the Friendship block post I have a really good start on a few more!

   Order 2018 pictures for the scrapbook

My Shutterfly order is to be delivered at the end of this week.

As we prepare for a few days away camping with some friends and consider the amount of time I will have for quilting my goals are...

❧  Work on a few "postcard blocks" for our Camping Journal Quilt

These blocks will be representing a few of our stays during our Texas Trip - Lake Corpus Christie and the glorious sunset that we enjoyed and the lighthouse on Bolivar, across the bay from Galveston, as well as a few others...

❧  Make 104 flying geese for a border on the commissioned quilt.  I will be making them using Eleanor Burns' "4 at a time method" so it should be too terribly hard.

Thanks for stopping by! 

I've gotta run... I'm looking forward to enjoying a S'more.

Are you a fan of S'mores?  

One of our friends going along said she has never really like them... her husband on the other hand, she said, will eat them until he is almost sick.  

I say... everything in moderation!

Quilt happy!

  1. Hi Melva! Have a blast camping with your friends!! That sounds like fun - s'mores, fresh air, laughter and chatting with friends. Camping - eh, not so much but maybe you RV? I haven't gone camping since I was a kid. 104 flying geese 4-at-a-time means only 26 sets. I love EB - she would make something easier like that. They are just the perfect addition to your commissioned quilt. Thanks so much for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Have a great time camping! Never tried S'mores - always thought I would one day get to the States and have someone who knows share them :) But seems like we'll al be waiting a while before we can stray to far from home again.

  3. You always have so much fun camping. Can't wait to hear what you do this time! Love, love the commission quilt. It's coming along so nicely. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
