I was looking at the blocks that I had done and the last block that I made for this quilt was back in November 2008!!! Yep! A long time ago! When I stopped working on them I had 74 blocks finished and I need a total of 121 blocks so I had over half of them done.
So I made two blocks while he was asleep (and he is still napping)! Here is the first block that I made today.....this one is called "Gardening" Row 4-3 and has 45 pieces. Not a hard block but they are only 6 inches so they tend to take a little longer than larger blocks.
This is the second block...."Recovering Items" Row 8-1 and has 31 pieces in it. I really like the purples in this block.
Not sure if I will get anymore of them done today or not....I have to finish supper before Hunter gets home from school.
Still haven't actually talked to Andrew other than on Facebook. His teacher sent an email last night that they were having some phone problems in Rome and would call home as soon as they could. Today Andrew had a full schedule on his trip (I have a copy of his tour schedule) They were touring Vatican City, St. Peter's Square, Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, Trevi Fountain, and the Colosseum. In the morning they will be going to Florence, Italy. I can't wait to hear all about his trip when he gets home!!!! He told me last night on Facebook that he had a ton of photos and his exact words were "it is the most awesome place that I have ever been in my life!" Made me cry when I read that! And I want to thank everyone again for helping out. So many of you bought fabric from me when we first found out about this trip, some even sent a little extra and without that he would have never been able to go. He worked very hard to raise enough money for the trip and spending money. I am very proud of him for working so hard for it, not only raising money but for being a great kid and student. Ahhhh.....yes, I am having a MOMMY MOMENT!!!
