How Time Flys....

I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post.  I have no excuse.  I can't count how many days I sat down to write a post and something came up.  Nothing bad.  We went camping with my daughter and her family.  Had a great time.  When your kids are grown and have families of their own you don't get to spend a lot of quality time with them.

I did some sewing.  Finished last month's "To Do" list and started this month's list.  Basically the only thing on this month's "To Do" list is to keep up with the 6 BOM's that I am doing.  Then I can do what ever I want.

Speaking of BOM's....here are some photos of what I have done.

 The three blocks were from August for my Hip Chicks BOM.  I haven't gotten the patterns for this month yet.

Here are my Pat Sloan's Globetrotting BOM.  The single block is September's block.

Sugar Shack BOM up to date.  I really love the fabric I chose.

Aurifil BOM is all up to date.

These are the September blocks for my Country Threads BOM.  The house block is 22" and the chevron blocks are 12" each.

I also finished another Sally Post block.  This is one of my favorites.

And finally....

 This is a quilt that I put together in one day.  It uses 12 fat quarters and then some background fabric.  I used some FQ that I wasn't all that fond of and I like the way they look in this quilt.

Yesterday I finally finished quilting the Pat Sloan sew-a-long quilt that I made a few months back.  I just need to tack down the binding.  I will show you a picture of it when it's done.

My oldest daughter Kelley signed up for a 5K run.  Now she is more of a walker than a runner.  She got this app on her phone called "Couch to 5K".  It is a training app.  You walk, run, walk, run...  She has been doing it for a few weeks not and the other day she called me soooo excited.  She ran for 45 minutes without stopping.  I am so proud of her.

My youngest daughter Kim had knee surgery this morning.  I just got off the phone with her.  She is doing good.  I tell you I just love taking to someone on pain meds....she really made me laugh.

Well that is it for now.  Not sure when my next post will be.  Sunday I go to Kelley's house to watch my granddaughter Cassidy while they go to Las Vegas.  Lucky them.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic week.

Hugs, Cathy
