Afterwards Hunter and I took the 4-wheeler (ATV) out for a ride. We had a nice time together and after we got back home Richard took it for a longer ride to cool off. It has been hot here, like it has pretty much everywhere but we finally got some rain in the wee dawn hours.
For some reason last night I couldn't sleep, I do that every so often. Anyway, I started sewing on those blocks that I cut last week. The windmill blocks. They go together so fast and before I knew it, I had 45 of them sewn together!! That is all that I had cut out, so I'm not sure at this point if I will just use what I have and do a 6x7 setting or try dig up more white and make more blocks. This is the 3rd quilt that I have made using this block. This first one is a king size
And this one is a full size. I don't have this one anymore, I sold it at Christmas. I really liked the fabrics in it.
And I also decided to jump on Bonnie's Bowtie Leaders and Enders. I actually pulled fabric for a bowtie a few weeks ago just from scraps and set it aside. But when I read her post, I knew I had to pull some background fabric for them and use them as my leader and ender project since I wasn't working on one at the time. Now sure how big it will be, I guess until I get tired of it or I run out of scraps! I'm not crazy about that green block but I guess that is the best part of scraps....if I use enough of them, you will never notice this in the quilt!And the whole time I was sewing last night my precious little Smokey stayed up with me. He is so sweet and lovable and only weighs in at 4lbs. And now an update on Hunter's eye. If you remember last month he got hurt with a piece of rebar at his birthday party....now look how well he has healed! I'm very grateful that the Lord was looking over him because it could have been so much worse than it was.
Now I had better get my butt in gear and clean my house and get something planned out for supper. Mom just left a few minutes ago, she came out to see our progress on the house since she had been gone. Maybe after supper this evening I can get these blocks pieced into a quilt top and I really need to get back to working on my Civil War Wreaths. I am so close to having that top finished but I have been avoiding it like the plague! Only two more rows and borders and I can call it a top!
