Happy Birthday to my 14 year old son today, my baby is growing up. I hope he, his two older brothers and my wonderful husband, are enjoying themselves at Seabase Boy Scout Camp in the Florida Keys!! I was able to get quite a bit done today and I am hoping to have the top of the CAL quilt done by the time my CAL freshman son returns from Florida. So much work, so little time.

Well, since I have had two weeks to work on projects, I was able to get quite a bit done on several projects. I am working on the setting solution for my Applique Challenge Quilt by making far to many half square triangles than I like but the look is great. I am trying to get to the point where I can work on the applique boarder and be finished!! I am going to use the flowers from most of the blocks to do the boarder and I cannot wait to work on it.
I have also made progress on my Florabunda quilt, finishing up two blocks this week. I hope I can get more done next week but time will be tight.

Ah, the anniversery of D-Day, or Operation Overlord. For me, not a bad week. I feel like I have spent the past three weeks working on my sewing machine day and night but I have accomplished quite a bit. I am almost done with Block 2 of Florabunda, have completed all my blocks on my Bali Pops Leaf Quilt and just need to put them together and am just minutes away from finishing up Spencer M's Chico State Quilt.
I have completely scrapped my Sutter Cancer Center Donation Quilt and decided that what I had made is just a mess and the more I try to fix it, the messier it gets. I need to start over, from scratch!! I found something that will be simple to pull together, I have the fabric and I hope to have the top done by next weekend.
