Countdown to Summer!

It's summer and time to change the blog header. 

Kelsey and Becca are both after me for not posting. I have been busy, I just don't feel like I have anything to say. 

School is winding down. Two more weeks. But that means track meets, field trips, etc. The kids are more rowdy than normal. I need their energy. So many days, the teachers go home TIRED. lol

As I was typing this, I heard on the world news that a six year old was taken off by the police (to the detention center at the police station) for throwing erasers and things in a school tantrum. Really!!! Come on!  Do they take the adults away when they have tantrums?

Okay, I have been working quietly on a couple of projects.

Here is one of them . . .

I just finished pin basting it on my tabletop. Much easier than crawling around on the floor. It is a second "I'm Blushing" by Natalia Bonner of Piece n' Quilt. It is under her free tutorials and was a Moda Bake Shop quilt.

My mom still uses a frame like this to do her hand quilting.

She has an extra one. I really have been thinking about getting it from her to use to pin baste my quilts. I don't know who these ladies are. I just found the image but they do look like they are getting things done and having a good time.

My mom quilts once a week with a couple of ladies from the church. I really need to make a point to surprise them by dropping in to help during the summer. Sounds like a lot of fun.

I am ready to start quilting. I can't decide if I want to quilt it like I did Becca's or go with something much simpler and quicker.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.

  1. Oh! I never thought about using a frame to baste my quilt -- what a smart idea! That's something I could put up over in the pavilion, get it basted, and then collapse and put away in the RV rather easily. I know what you mean about not feeling like you have anything to say. I go through spells like that, too. Enjoy these last days until summer break! YAY! :)
