Busy Week

It has been a busy week with Guitar Girl's finals, Skater Girl's first day of  8th grade, my start of a new semester, and our 20th wedding anniversary.
I managed to get a few stitches into the JC.  I'm very pleased with the additional row of stitching on the petals.  I was worried that the teal thread would be too much contrast on the pink or green petals, but the stitches are small enough that it isn't a problem.  And as busy as the front side is, the back will be teal with white striped triangles.  It's very important to me that this quilt be completely reversable with a much different feel on each side.

I noticed yesterday, that I had started to get a good sized stack of the HST blocks in my purse project bag, so this morning I ironed and trimmed them.  I'm up to 32 blocks now.

My weekend plans have changed....I managed to get out of going to Harley Dude's class reunion by planning a camping trip with the daughters.  But now it's going to storm all weekend and there are forest fires where we were going to go.  I may get to quilt after all :)

I love your quilting on the JC. I have a long way to go on mine! I still have lots of applique left to do.

The JC is stunning! I can't imagine anyone being excited about rain/storms/forest fires...but since it involves quilting...that's very different! ;-)
