How Long is This Week?

Seems  like its been going on forever. They are still 7 days right? Seems like the 4th was so long ago.
I finished a quilt,  quited for a client and then added binding to the finished quilt. I still have binding to sew before I show it off. Went to lunch with my pal Faith and goofed off on a gal pals couch while I ate her homemade cookies! yummy. and its only Thursday... feels like Monday was so long ago.

 This is early on the fourth at my "neighbors" house (they live around the corner, but we share an HOA) Its our 5th year of the block party (which is in its 6th year). The boys are getting big and will be driving soon. I can tell this because all they did all night was throw firecrackers and follow the girls around.  Im not looking forward to cars going round and round and round... 
 
 We walked over to get pics early while kids were still napping.
 Heres my latest finish. made from a Jelly roll and Layer cake. It will be going into my stack 100 quilts for kids. see the button on the side there?? I am hoping it will go to the community warehouse.

Apparently, I feel a lot better as I just signed up to take Susan Beals Log Cabin Class. I scored a discount code on Facebook. :) yea me! thanks PNCA! thanks Susan!

I leave tomorrow for Sisters and hopefully it wont be like landing directly on the surface of the sun 
too hot. 

I'm not taking a machine or have any great plans, Im taking some binding(so behind and its a long drive) but Im hoping for unstructured time. 
Visiting and Goofing Off: that's my plan! 
I may blog directly here, tweet(im a twatter), flickr and I probably wont be on facebook... so look everywhere else...;)

Quilters Rock!

The quilt is beautiful! Holy cow? Can I post a picture of it on my blog with your name, site, etc.... you know, to encourage people and because I think it is such a fab quilt? I actually pulled out a 100 Quilts coin quilt I'm working on last night... this will motivate me to get it finished! :)

Oh my goodness, I love that! I might have to copy you and make one too. That is such a great pattern, isn't it? Thanks so much for sharing it with me, and for your nice comments.

Have a great day!
