another BOM

Here's another block I finished over the weekend. This is from Forever Green quilting and I'm half way through now. It's a great little quilt. http://www.forevergreenquilts.com/free-quilt-patterns.html This lady uses some really tiny pieces. One of the previous blocks had 1/4" wide shutters on it and that almost convinced me to stop, but I made it through that one and am sure I can make it through the rest, odd angles and all. I also worked on my Bunny Hill block and am almost done. Hopefully, I'll finish the embroidery tonight and get it posted tomorrow. It's nice to get everything caught up and it's just about the first of the month when they'll start posting new blocks again.




I geo my yard work done yesterday morning and the veggies are blooming like wild. We had 4 days under a hundred last week and it got the whole process started again, so I'm pollinating tomatoes and watching little green beans form. The cukes didn't do well, but that's a result of where I planted them. I thought it would be a sunny enough spot, but it wasn't. Next year I'll know better. Everything in the yard enjoyed those cooler days and the inch of rain we got one evening. It was perfect and I'm hoping will be repeated this week. They say there's a chance so I've got my fingers crossed.

We have Sydney convinced that we're going to a cave for our day trip on Wednesday. Rob told her he paid extra for us to have a place to sit and watch the stalactites drip and then we're going to measure the increased height of the corresponsing stalagmite...we are devils for parents. We're really going to Fiesta Texas, a 6 Flags Theme park in San Antonio! I really didn't think she believed us, but I heard her tell the counselors at camp this morning and I really think she does. Oh, how gullible.

It's a two day workweek and while I'm sure Rob will have us up and moving early on our days off, I am hoping to get in a little rest and relaxation. Too bad I can't take a little needlework with me to the theme park so I can enjoy them going on the roller coasters as much as they do. I don't do fast and I don't do high up, so I plan to find some of those conveniently placed benches all around the park and converse with the other old people. That way, we can all be happy!

Y'all take care and we'll see ya round the net! Lane

Have great fun at the park! I'm a bench sitter at the parks, too! No roller coasters for me!

I admire the way you keep up with so many BOm's. The Christmas quilt you showed in your last post is going to be so awesome, you'll want to keep it around the whole year through.
Hope you all have fun on your surprise trip.

I would find a bench too, I don't do motion or high or fast either. I like your house BOM.

Lane: I vote for the park bench too, I used to do fast and high but age has me thinking that is not for me any more.
You have so many projects on the go, when do you find the time? Great work Patricia

Hey Lane, I have been on vacation for over a week and it sure is good to catch up on what's going on. I love the clocks, good for Sydney for cooking, your Featherweight is beautiful and I can't wait to see the orange peel quilt! Have a great time! Lisa

Isn't it funny how many of us don't do roller coasters? We should all plan vacations at the same time so we can sit and visit while everybody else goes screaming on the rides. Have fun there anyway, and take sunscreen ;)

With 100F weather a trip to a cave sounds heavenly. It's sure to be cooler in there. Love your house. I'm really drawn to houses in quilts.

I used to love roller coasters, high and fast. But as I got older, they just seemed to beat up these old bones with all that bouncing around. Hope you have fun. Love your BOM, looks like a neat pattern. Karen

Have a wonderful time at the park. We are headed off to Disney Land on Saturday and Sunday. Love the house block.
