So Much Going On

I am just so excited for all that is going on right now.  It's funny, I thought summer was supposed to slow down but instead, it seems like things have kicked up quite a few notches.  But I am totally loving it!! 

 I have 2 tutorials in the next 2 days  and then another one next week, and one in July.  I just love participating in blog hops and the like, it is so much fun and I make so many amazing friends.  And best of all, it really helps me to get my projects done!

And I also have my non-blogger land projects in works. Yesterday I quilted the center Semi in my Dad's Father's Day quilt.  Now I just can't decide how I want to quilt the rest of it.  I am debating between the same pattern on a larger scale or wavy lines.  Any suggestions??

And I continue to work on my King and Queen size Braided Irish chains.  These 2 are a huge WIP but I just love working with these fabrics so that is nice.  Each night my husband and I watch old episodes of  Friends to unwind before bed.  It is a great time for him to surf the internet and check up on sports and I use the time to pin.  This is what I did last night.  (It's nice that we can spend time together but we both still get to do what we want, tee hee hee :)

And the nights before I pinned these 2 stacks.  The 4 patch squares are all done and the other stack has now been stitched and I just need to press them now.  It is amazing how long it takes to pin a stack over 100 pieces.  I need to teach my kids how to press :)

And I pulled some fabrics for one of those tutorials mentioned above.  I am excited to start cutting into this happy stack!  And I am just waiting on fabric to arrive for the Christmas in July tutorials.

So here is the rundown.  Not so many completions but a lot of work going on, so I am good with that :)

  5. I quilt in the computer room for similar reasons. My husband can play his games/surf the internet and I can quilt. But we can still talk to each other if we want. Or at the very least we're near each other.

  6. Not much on then ;o) Good luck with it all!

  7. What are you going to do with the 10 Little Things fabric? I recently made a quilt top using it myself:
    I love that fabric!
