Wally got his!

When Olivia was talking about Wally and his service, she said he had gone right into the Marines out of high school (like my #1 son) and was a flamethrower.   YIKES!  That sounds SCARY.  Not sure if he spent the entire 4 years doing that (hope not) but now he has his quilt.  Yay Wally!

There!

I admit I'm a procrastinator and usually have way more projects in the pipe than I should have.  And this one IS small but just one more border (which will be the same as the background) and this one can be quilted.  I did have some issues with the background fabric as it was a bit stretchy so I'll probably cut the outer borders in the other direction to kinda reel it in and prevent anymore stretching while on the frame.

Have I mentioned I LOVE this one?!!  Star spangled pineapple quilt love!

I can just see this

hanging in my entryway NEXT 4th of July!  HA  I have two more rows with pinwheels then final outer borders and just about ready for quilter.  YAY!

I hit a couple of shops yesterday on the first day of row by row.  One shop was for a friend and the other was for me.  Last year I said I would NOT be doing it this year and mostly I won't.  I'm totally underwhelmed by the majority of rows so that makes it really easy to pass on them.  There are only a few I've seen that I really like and if I don't get them, that's OK by me.  Anyone else doing row by row?

working on the pineapple

It's coming along and I really, REALLY like it!!  I've got all the sashings cut and ONE pinwheel together.  Got a few more ready so I feel like I'm closing in on the finish.  At least it'll be ready for next year.  😉

Gone for a week

Was gone for a week up in SW Colorado..SO beautiful as always.  Weather was gorgeous (perfect, actually, except for a little nippy after dark).  Saw the musical TEXAS! in Palo Duro (again) and was great as it always is.  Did some geocaching, went to Durango for a rodeo and quilt shop visiting, did a little shopping in Pagosa, some card playing and a nice relaxing time.  Good to get home to the bed and kitten who's missed me.


 Eating good Mexican food out on the patio watching the folks dipping in the springs across the way.


Gorgeous aspen trunks.

Trying to catch a hummer at the feeder.

Cards anyone?

Rodeo!

And beautiful sunsets!!

I didn't get to be there for this presentation but wanted to be sure his wife was there when he received it and she can't always make it.  So I just asked them to go ahead if she was there.  That's three who've received their's and a few more to go!
