Progress Being Made

I finally conquered the triangle problem and finished the quilt top for the next Jo Morton quilt. Take that you pesky triangles!! The top is pinned and ready to quilt. I hope to get it done in the next week.

Our son is coming home today. Yea!! He has been in summer school in Illinois. He had his last final on Saturday. Seriously, who schedules finals for Saturday??? I remember my freshman year having classes on Saturday at 7:30 or 8:30 am. I thought that was cruel and unusual punishment. Anyway, he is home for a week or maybe two and then back again to start his junior year.

Our daughter is off to the Marshall Islands and is half way thru her training. We have had two letters from her and a couple of emails. She has very limited internet access. No cell phone. No TV or computers. It is going to be a very long year. When did I get so accustomed to all these things? My husband and I are alternating writing letters twice a week. His day is Saturday and mine is Wed. I have already sent her a care package. She requested jerky and snacks. Right now she is eating mostly veggies and rice. So far no Spam, which I hear is like their national meat. She is also in need of children's books and school supplies, so fortunately I have been able to get to the Back to School sales and find a few things for her there.

Time to get back to cleaning. Hope your day is more fun.


  1. Your quilt is lovely. I still have to do this one. Our little group took some time off this summer.

    Your choice of fabrics is awesome!

  2. I love this quilt--I think your fabrics are great. In fact, today I just bought the one you have in the four corners. : )
