Joanne's Giveaway

You really need to go check out Joanne's blog called Splitting Stitches. She has been posting the quilts she has been quilting for others. Plus she is having a great giveaway right now. She will be drawing a winner on June 29th so get over there soon.

Not much happening around here today. Just worked a while this morning then picked up McDonald's on my way home. I had planned to go to the grocery today but I think I will wait until tomorrow so I can make sure I have everything I need on my list. Sunday is the Graduation Open House for DD Jill so I want to make sure I get everything I need in one trip. It is too far to town to have to pick up something I had forgotten.

We have added a new member to the family. No not a grandchild or anything like that. We now a have bull calf that was born on Wednesday. Maybe I can get some pictures of him today. We got up this morning to find him asleep beside the front porch. He sure is cute!

That is it for today! Hope you have a great weekend!

Design Wall Monday

What is on my design wall? This is! I was late for Design Wall Monday last week and didn't get it posted until Saturday. Today I am on time! If you want to see what other bloggers have on their design wall, go to Judy Laquidara's Patchwork Times.

I did manage to get some more blocks done over the weekend.

Hope you had a great weekend!

What is on my design wall!

Judy Laquidara over at Patchwork Times has started "What is on your design wall". Just click on the links and you can read all about it. I am definitely very late or very early with my post. But here is what is on my design wall.

In our Quilting In Indiana Yahoo group I have posted a challenge. The challenge is to use up your scraps. This is what I have been doing with mine. This is a quilt as you go project that will end up being reversible. I don't have the blocks in the position they will end up in. I just have them on the design wall to keep them out of the way until they are done. These have already been quilted but with 80 blocks I still have a ways to go.

Today I spent a few hours at an Estate sale and a couple of flea markets. The only thing I found was this.

I found this great little travel iron at one of the flea markets. Isn't it so cute!!!!

It was still in the original box and still wrapped in the original packing. The cord is even still coiled up for shipping. The handle folds down after you remove the plug. This little thing is sure heavy but weren't those irons we had way back then so great!!! It seemed like they lasted a lifetime so I think I will really like this one. I couldn't go wrong for $3.00.

That has been my day!
Hope you are having a good one!


Pomp & Circumstance!

I think that is how you spell it! Here is what we have been up to lately.

This is a picture of my dear daughter in her cap & gown. Her High School graduation ceremony was held yesterday evening. It is hard to believe she is the baby of the bunch.
Here is a picture of her with her two brothers.

I am so proud of her and both her brothers. They have all turn outed to be excellent individuals!
Hope you are having a great weekend!
