Make-A-List Monday

The Week of June 10, 2013
(in review)


1.  Attend my DGS Ryder's First Birthday Party.

Dear Ryder's first birthday party was quite the celebration.


"Thanks Uncle JT and Auntie Shea for my new slide.  Wheeeeeee!"







"Hmmmmm!  If I knew cake tasted this good I would have had a birthday a long time ago."




















"Happy Birthday to ME!!!!"













"Are all these people here for me??"


"Where are all the presents?"
"There they are!!!"

"Birthday Parties are fun, Mommy!"





2.  Continue to work on hand tacking bindings.

I did a little work on bindings but not much.

3.  Continue to work on the following Brody Projects.

Going Buggy
Hopscotch in Neutrals
Blue Dresden Plate Quilt
Roll Roll Cotton Boll
Lazy Sunday

I finished the Going Buggy top.  I love the way it turned out.



I found just the right backing fabric in my stash.
It has been added to my Git-R-Done list.


4.  Prepare the backing for the Heather Spence Spring Mystery Quilt to Benefit Cancer Patients.




The backing fabric I ordered finally came.  I was able to find one of the background fabrics I used in the top, at Quiltshops.com and it was on sale!    The backing has been prepared and it has been added to my Git-R-Done list.

5.  Finish hand tacking the binding of "A Pirate's Life for Me" for Ryder's first birthday.




I can't wait for Ryder to be able to play with his new quilt.


6.  Finish 2 blocks and 4 triangles for my Dear Jane quilt.



All the blocks are now done.  I still have 8 triangles and 4 corners to do.  Currently my numbers are as follows:

Blocks       169
Triangles     44
Corners         0
Pieces      4512


7.  Make some blocks for my Just Takes 2 quilt.



I was able to finish 5 blocks.

8.  Spend two days with little Ryder.  (plus his party)




We had sooooo much fun together this week.

9.  Work on finishing the Building Blocks BOM that was sponsored by The Village Quilter in Mt Holly, NJ.

No progress this week.

10.  Spend some QT with my DFIL, DH and DS for Father's Day. 

 This was a very sad Father's Day for me but spending it with the great fathers I still have in my life made it easier.

It was wonderful to spend time with such important people to me.
