Unplanned Absents

I had no intentions of being absent for a month, but life happens.
Was busy in the beginning of the month getting ready for the grandsons visit and helping Mom get to appointments.

The boys were here for 3 weeks and we had so much fun.
Hate that it was so hot already, not good for June and is rough on the pastures and cattle.

Ben loves to build things and while I was getting in a little sewing he decided that he would use my rulers and rolls of toilet paper to make a secret fortress. 

Quite a site.

  So cute he was

All month 

this has been up on the wall

I've made 30 blocks and now I'm working on the sashings

Since I don't have a pattern I've had to figure this all out.
Been a lot of adding more to what I thought I needed

Have this portion of the sashing done but ended up over doing it. 

Have too many nine patches now.

My Goal for the month is to get this top finished.

Figure this is plenty to work on and if all goes well maybe I'll get to another WIP.

Linking up to elm street quilts


  1. the World Cup, reading & thought it would be a good time to catch up on blogging. I have several things I have wanted to blog, like our trip to Universal Studios & Disney! best double jogging stroller

  2. Well been there too about wanting to and actually writing. Good luck

  3. Great quilt top. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  4. What a cutie your Grandson is, it must have been a real delight having them visit. Love the quilt top.

    1. It was wonderful to have them here, they live 1200 miles from us so visits are few. They grow so fast. Yours are closer but I bet you don't get to see them as much as you would like. Its nice being a Grandparent.

  5. You had a good reason for being away. Glad to see you are back with a new project.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
