It has been a little while!

I just realized how long it had been since I posted to my blog. Shame on me for being so behind!
I have been so busy that things fall behind quickly.
We spent a few days in South Carolina at Fort Jackson. Jessica (DS's girlfriend) finally graduated from Basic Training. It was so great to see her! She left Indiana in July, so it has been a while.
Over 800 soldiers graduated that day. Jessica can really be proud of herself, I know we were.
While we were there, my wonderful niece Aimee and her precious little boy Zach, came to visit with us. Aimee brought me a wonderful selection of fat quarters from a quilt shop she lives near. Thank you Aimee!!!!!!!! They were great!
It was great spending some time with the two of them. Zach has grown so much! Quite a little guy!
I have managed to get a little sewing in since my last post. I have been working on a batik quilt from the book Stack a New Deck. I just have the borders left to add to it. Then maybe I can take a few pictures of it. That is if I remember to get some new batteries for the camera.

I know you are probably wondering what has happened to the scrap quilt I had been working on. Well, it kind of took a back seat to the batik one. The scrap quilt as well as the Coneflower wall quilt. I really need to get back to those and get them finished.

I had to go to Columbus yesterday so I thought I should use my 50% off coupon from Joann's while I was there. I have several quilts that just need quilted so I thought some batting would be appropriate for the coupon. Since they had a whole roll of the Warm and Natural, I just bought it. Now to get busy and get those quilts quilted.

Lots to do and not enough time in the day!

I too used my 50% coupon on batting the other day. Got 6 yards for the price of 3 how can one go wrong there.

I still have the whole roll that I had bought last year at Christmas time for $3.99 a yard. I finally used up the partial role that I had and cut into the new roll for the pink block quilt. So 40 yds goes a long way....
