A Little Bit Closer!

Here are a few more blocks that I have done today! I now have a total of 75 blocks done! Only....46 blocks left to go! I am getting anxious to get these blocks done, I just hope that my energy doesn't run out before I can finish them! :) I can finally see the end in sight!






I took all of my blocks out to mom's house today. She has "cream" colored carpet so we layed them all out on the floor to get a good idea of how they will all look together and decided on a border fabric! Of course, I ran off and left my camera at home so no photos of our little bit of fun. But it was exciting to see my blocks layed out.

Speaking of my mom...she is leaving in the morning. :( My Mom is my best friend and I miss her so much while she is gone. So you have 28 days to hear me whine over my mother! :) She has a great job but the worst part of it is that she is gone for 28 days at a time. But I know that it is probably harder on her being gone than it is on us. We have the rest of the family with us, she doesn't...

Anyway...Richard will be home all day tomorrow and the rest of the weekend...3 days...so who knows how much sewing that I will be able to get done...

It's nice that you and your mom are so close! I'm sure she reads your blog and talks to you regularly while she's away. You're very lucky to have such a great mom. Feel free to whine about her being gone. It just shows how important she is...I'm sure it's good for her to hear it too.

The blocks are beautiful! I know it must be hard for you to see your mom leave. It is good you all are close.

hugs Kristie! Mom will be back as soon as you know it :)

I noticed that too when hubby is home more I don't sew as much! Hubby needs a hobby that is outside and far from the house LOL

It's good you and your mom are close! I cannot imagine living very far from my mom. Your blocks look great - but I CANNOT BELIEVE you forgot your camera at home. Have a good weekend!

You're really moving along on those blocks. It's going to be finished in no time at all. Have a great weekend. When are you starting your apple butter? I'm almost done with the maters, and I'm thinking first week of Oct is going to be apple week here.

Thanks for sharing your blocks as I am just getting started with the Love Letter quilt and can use some fabric inspiration. They are looking great and I can't wait to see the last 49!
Keep em coming!

Do you think you'll put it together right away when you're done with the blocks or will you be soooo tired of the blocks that you'll wait a bit to put it together? It's something about the number of blocks that has me running scared! That's why I haven't assembled Moneik's quilt yet.
