Awesome Adventures May 2017

Awesome Adventures
 May 2017

Now that I have finally updated
 Make-A-List Monday,     
it's now time to work on 
Awesome Adventures.


The month of May was busy with a birthday celebration, tee-ball,  
and lots of outside play.

My three special guys!

Logan turned three during the month on May.

Ryder made friends on his first tee-ball team.


Sweet Jace - 3 Months Old

Ryder & Logan enjoyed another wonderful library class.




















Brotherly Love...





Logan getting his groove on :)
 


The boys love playing with our dog, Brody.



We enjoyed playground time ...



and Sesame Place ...


Little Jace learned to roll over ...


and he discovered his laugh ...

Ryder & Logan love to play with their baby brother.





Check back in a few days to see what we were up to during the month of June.

Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!

Make-A-List Monday September 2017



Image result for where have i been

OK...I know I have been missing for quite a few months.  There is really no excuse.  Life gets busy and quilting has to be put on the back burner for a while.  

I think the best way to start back with  
Quilty Pleasures
is to do a Make-A-List Monday.  I really haven't done a whole lot of "Quilty" things in the past four months but I will try to remember the few things that I have completed.

May/August
(in review)

1.  Piece, quilt, bind and label at least one "Quilts for Kids" quilt.  Attend the QFK workshop at Pennington Quilt Works.





These are the quilts our QFK group donated in May, June & July.  I did not attend the August workshop as I had to go on some emergency wedding venue visits
      (A very long story...)

2.  Make a quilt for Logan's Big Boy Bed.

Logan's Big Boy Quilt is almost complete.  The first picture is of a Pottery Barn Kids quilt that I was asked to use as a starting point for his quilt.



Then I began designing, purchasing fabric and creating... 


This is what the quilt top looked like before it was quilted:


The quilting is now complete and I am currently working on the binding.  I will post a picture of the completed quilt when the binding is done and it is on his bed.  Stay tuned for my next Make-A-List-Monday post for that picture.
