I know it has been a couple of days since my last post, so here I am finally. Not a whole lot of quilting going on here. I have been doing my chores around the house during the day, then heading to mom's during the evening to put up apples! We picked a few bushels the other day and right now we are freezing them, I think we have somewhere around 32 quarts in the freezer. We plan to freeze a little more and then do some jelly, applebutter, and maybe some canned apple pie filling. There is no shortage of apples here so we are trying to put up as many as we can.
Hubby was home today so you know how that goes...just can't get alot of sewing done when he is home through the day. He will go back to work tomorrow so hopefully I can get a few more blocks finished. I did manage to get one block done a few minutes ago. Here it is....this makes me 52 blocks on the Love Letters and I have 55 blocks on the Diary quilt. Just think, if I had stayed working on only one of them I would be almost finished. Each quilt has 121 blocks in it.
My SIL had another ultrasound on Monday and found out that it is a BOY! The baby is due in November so I still have a little while to get a quilt done. We were all convinced that it was a girl but we were wrong. They did one of those 4-D Ultrasounds and it looks like you are looking right at the baby, they could see his hair and everything. We are all excited about it. This is my brother and his wife, they have 2 children already....Madison 6 and Zeph will be 2 tomorrow!!!!! I have a pattern in mind, I just have to dig it out and get started.
I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone for their nice comments about our dog passing away. I think the worst part of it for me was seeing my boys so upset. If you are a mother you know what I mean, it hurts so bad to see your kids upset when there is nothing that you can do about it. They seem to be doing better now as long as Fred is not mentioned. I guess it is still too fresh in their minds.
I will leave you with a cute photo of Donkey!!!
