Making Some Progress

I had four days to do whatever I wanted.  I think I took advantage of it to the fullest.

Finished my name block for my redwork Words of Wisdom quilt.  I think I will get my blocks pressed and trimmed down a little at a time.  I don't have the fabric to make the sashing.  It calls for two different reds and the blocks look like attic window blocks. I may need to actually walk into a quilt shop to look for fabrics. 
I finished putting the borders on the Grand Illusion quilt.  Sorry for the pics we are still getting a lot of rain.  Another quilt that needs to be quilted.
I finished my block for the brown bagger quilt group through quilt guild.

I also got most of the quilting done for the baby quilt, started prepping blocks for my next embroidery project, and started putting together the 2014 Aurifil quilt blocks. 

Friday night we had Father's Day dinner at the youngest daughter's house with her SO parents, and my ex husband and his wife.  Saturday DH worked, and Sunday we had dinner at a local restaurant with the oldest daughter, son in law, and two grand daughters.  

I only have a few more days before the end of the month.  I really  need to get some more things going, but I have long days watching kids, so not much gets done during the week, but I must this week!  July is coming on fast.
