This is the state of my living room at 7 a.m. this morning. My oldest (19 going on 20) is moving in with us for a few months. We will be moving out in June...he'll be renting this from us...the problem...a two month overlap and trying to fit all of his possessions (junk, crap, etc) and him into our little townhome in the meantime. Allow me a bit of whining...
... how long can you stretch out a move...days, weeks...
...it had to rain..which means wet shoes and mud...
...how many times can you bump into a wall carrying a dresser?
...i know those sheets he brought over stuffed into a box haven't been washed since he moved out...
...how many t shirts does one boy need?
...i'm biting my tongue trying not to say those 'mom' things I promised him I wouldn't say...
wish me luck.
In the midst of this I did manage one small finish. A very late birthday present for a friend. She picked the colors the fabrics and even requested the quilting. Made it easy for me. I'm happy to have it done for her. It's a combination of vintage sheets and Kona cotton in pink and pomegranate.
I made this block for Project Improv from some leftover Lush. I haven't contributed to the blue/green colorway yet, so I did.
The final deadline for me to receive your blocks is Friday. Please make sure they arrive here by then. After that I can't guarantee that they will be in a quilt. I've finished one more red/aqua, two more orange/pink and one more blue/green top. (I'll take pictures when the sun comes out!) There will be 3 more tops (one in each colorway). To make it all come out even, I have a group of quilters who have volunteered to make blocks to fill in the last 3 tops. I will contact them on Friday. Volunteers: look for an email or a flickr mail from me on Friday.
Meanwhile these blocks have arrived. Do they belong to you? The first are from Oregon...this quilter made 4 great blocks. I need your first name. Please drop me a comment or an email.
This one is from Minnesota...your last name starts with a K. I need your first name. Help!
Other blocks that arrived:
Jill NY - 2 blocks and the cutest little pin. Thanks!
Jessica B OR - 1 block
Liz T - AZ 1 block
Overall I've been pretty fortunate...I've only had a few block incidents, a crazy cat ate two blocks, and I punctured a couple with my trimming scissors. I think we may have had one lost in the mail. Karen, I have searched high and low for your block. It's not in a quilt and I can't find it. I'm so sorry. Drop me an email and we can talk about what to do.
Please check your name in the sidebar....if I have your block you have a star by your name. Drop me an email if it's not right. Thanks!
