Only 49 more to go!

72 down and 49 more to go!!! Yipee!!!! With these three latest blocks I only have 49 more to go! I feel like I am finally seeing the end of this baby! I know I still need to do the other 49 blocks, sashings for 121 blocks, add borders, and quilt it but at least I know the end is closer than it was... :)

I also finished my bag today for the stitchery bag swap! I forgot to get a photo of it before I packaged it up! But it is finished and that makes me happy.

Other than a little bit of sewing not alot going on here. I have been very tired and sleepy the past few days...just stress I think. So I am back to napping everyday.

Hunter joined Cub Scouts a few weeks ago! He had his fisrt meeting on Monday. He really seems to like it. They have meetings every Monday at 5:30pm in town. Gives him something to do and it is good for him. Andrew has a field trip tomorrow with FFA (Future Farmers Of America) I have to take him to school early, the bus will be leaving before school starts and they will be going to Morehead. School started in August and I think he this will make him 3 field trips already! Oh and Hunter got is mid-term today! He is in 1st grade and has all A's!!! :) Andrew should be getting his mid-term within the next few days! He is also a great kid! Andrew has never made anything lower than a B. I am very proud of both of them.

Opppps! I just realized that I only put 3 block photos on here, I actually made 4, I will load it on the next post, but I still have 72 blocks finished!!!

I guess that is all for tonight, I need to finish some laundry and try to go to bed.

You are centainly moving right along with these blocks...the end is almost in sight.

Sounds like your boys both do real well in school...that is great.

Hope everything on your side of the mountain is giving you the answers you are looking for.

More beautiful blocks. You're going to be finished with this quilt in no time. Sashing and borders....they're a piece of cake! ;)
Good job for your boys.
Napping rejuvinates the soul. You need it - with the stress of the house, life with small children and the farm. :)
(((HUGS))) for a stress free day!

Congrats to Hunter for a terrific midterm - and you are really coming down the homestretch on this quilt - you ought to take a picture of them all together! Looks good.

I was in FFA in High School and it was a really great club. I learned a lot about leadership and public speaking there. Love your blocks! Can't wait to see the rest of them.
