What I’m Working On…

We’ve been travelers this weekend.  We’ve put on lots of miles and I’ve stitched lots of stitches…SEE?


It started as the center star with only a couple diamonds on the outside and it GREW!!!

This is what happens when a person spends too many hours in a vehicle.  It was right around 11 hours spent of driving time.  We went up near Red Wing to a wedding on Hubby’s side of the family.  It was an outdoor wedding and it was very hot and humid but very pretty….and seeing old friends was fun for us both.

We were up early and heading back to the Iowa border..back home.  We unloaded and then loaded again and were on our way.  This time we headed south to Oxford Junction.  Buck and Lora were having a birthday party for Lora’s nephew Scott and we were invited.  Lora has custody of Scott and he’s a big part of their life so it was time for us to meet him.  That too was a 2 1/2  hour drive.

It was fun and we were so happy to meet Lora’s family.  We had stopped and picked up Kayla and Carver on the way.  Kayla had been taking care of Carver for the last couple days so Craig and Kalissa could do some remodeling at their house. It’s so hard to remodel with a baby so it was awesome that Kayla stepped up and helped by taking him for a couple days.

From there we dropped Kayla off back at her house….we headed north again with Carver in tow.  Then we detoured over to Kelli’s house as Kelli had Ruby and was taking care of her for us.  Then we were finally on the last leg of the journey.

Now as I write, Carver is hanging our with his parents and I’m on Kalissa’s porch “stealing” her wifi.  In the storms we had on Friday, we had a lightning strike and lost our router for the computer.  We were told they would overnight us new one and we’d have it Saturday.  Alas, no router….so that leaves me here and “stealing”….so if you’ve emailed me or left messages for me, I haven’t read them and likely won’t get to them for a couple days. Thanks for understanding….

In between all the driving some paper piecing happened.  I hadn’t had a chance to work much on paper piecing for a long time so it was a treat.  I’ve got a bit of an itch to keep going and try to get the first row completely together.  We’ll see..I have a very busy month ahead with more car time involved…we’ll see how much I get done.

  1. I find EPP is very relaxing and it goes surprisingly fast. If you have more trips planned this summer, this will be the perfect project to work on.

  2. I am jealous of your beautiful green lawn! Here in Oskaloosa we have brown lawns. Your EPP looks great. I don’t have the patience to do something like that!

  3. Those are beautiful, it is on my list to make a hexagon flower quilt someday. I don’t think I could do it while moving though, as I easily get motions sickness, even when looking at my phone for directions! (while not driving)
