WIP Wednesday 6.18.14 & FNSI Plans

Summer fun is in full force.  Not a lot of quilting is getting done, but a lot of fun is happening with me and our 7-year-old son.   Waterparks, swimming and fun.  I soon hope to comment on a trip to Cedar Point, roller coaster heaven in Sandusky, Ohio.

I hope to sew a few more yellow scraps to make a yellow Kite Girl block for June.  I plan to do this on Friday night for the June FNSI.  This is at Sugarlane Quilts.

Grab the Friday Night Sew In (FNSI) button

Here are my Kite Girl blocks thus far:



We've been working hard in the garden.  For the most part the plants that are supposed to be planted now are in and growing.  Our warm (79 degrees or so), humid weather is really making it nice for all the new plants.


 
 Here you can see my chicken helper feeding the chickens next to the garden inside the garden.  Chickens are new to us this year.  WE LOVE THEM!!!  Lookout egg recipes!

I finished the June blocks for the Love Laugh Quilt Christmas Improv QA.



I made 64 little yellow 4-patches for the RSC14.



Even though I'm on a fabric diet this year, I couldn't pass up all these garage sale goodies for $50.  Look at all those reds, blues, and YUMMY neutrals!!!
