WIP Finish Week Continues

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I enjoyed time with my mom and time with my boys and hubby. Time is the most precious gift. My youngest took some pictures for me around the country house. I didn't receive flowers, but I surely enjoyed these. The last of the redbuds, the bridal veil spirea is beginning to bloom and the French lilacs are at their peak. It was beautiful and the scent was lovely.














































Last week was dedicated to reducing the WIP list. I made some progress. I made 2 pillow shams to match the Zig Zag quilt, finished machine quilting the Whirlygiggles quilt, pieced the back for the Radio Flyer quilt, made and attached the binding to the Whirlygiggles quilt too. Today I'm basting the Radio Flyer quilt and hope to start quilting on that. I will hand sew the binding onto the Whirlygiggles quilt tonight. Then I have to get going on Hannah's graduation quilt. I've totally changed directions on that one. I'll give you a peak tomorrow (hopefully). After all that I want to get to AmandaJean's quilt-a-long stars. This is truly self control on my part. I so want to dive into that project! I would love to have some time to read blogs...my bloglines are full. Yikes. Pictures of finishes tomorrow! Cross your fingers with me!

Jacquie,
I was at Walmart on 159th and Metcalf and thought of you. I was heading out to the garden center and they have hoses/fertilizers and planters before you get outside. Right there on a shelf was a pink/white teacup planter on a big saucer! If I had my digital I would've taken a pic for you. You might HAVE to have that one! LOL

OK--sometimes reading about all your activity makes me dizzy!

I can't wait to see what you do next.
I was too sick to enjoy Mother's day but we plan to go out one night this week. Better late than never I guess.
