Good Intentions

I had good intentions of showing you a finished quilt today…but, the stars didn’t align and let that happen.

The quilt I was going to show you was Star Gazing.  I was happily quilting it when (UGH!!) I ran out of backing!!!  WHAT!?!  I thought I measured and measured and then cut but apparently not.  At least I’ve been machine quilting long enough to know that this isn’t the end of the world.  It’s just a time wasting set back.


This did get off the frame…and I did get it bound…but this happened.

THE WEATHER!  We’ve had lots of stormy days and Kalissa has worked evenings this week.  That means the guys have been called out to weather spot (look for tornadoes) and then called for weather clean up.   We did see a rainbow one night but the rain continued.


That means this guy and I have been hanging out lots in the evenings.


We’ve had so many rainy days I couldn’t get out to take a picture of the finished quilt.  It will have to wait for another day.  For now you’ll have to settle for this picture.  See what’s on the frame now?intentions-4

This is the graduation quilt that I realized (last night) needs to be finished for a graduation party on SUNDAY!!   A couple of my kiddos are coming home tonight for various reasons so the deadline is going to get pushed right to the limit.  The good news is I have nothing going on Sunday.  Worst case scenario, I wake up early on Sunday and finish it by the time of the party which is 4-ish on Sunday.  It’s do-able if it has to be….

and yes…it’s raining again.
