WIP Wednesday -- The Back to School Edition!!!

It's back to school day today!!!  Our son is now in 6th grade--middle school look out!  Here's what happened this week:

I took in a customer 9-patch quilt to longarm.  It's loaded onto the frame!  The back is big enough!!!


Yesterday mama cat had six kittens.  She put them in a hole under the old porch.  It rained and rained.  They are all still fluffy and dry.  This mama cat knows what she is doing!  There are four yellow tigers and two dark tigers.  One of the dark tigers may have some white spots on it. 


No, I still didn't get the binding put on the December Scrappy Stars (Block Lotto) crib quilt.  It's still sitting on my desk (which I did clean -- woohoo!)  It seems to be my catch all spot for scraps that need to be run through Accuquilt dies and paperwork for school


Here's a picture of it quilted and trimmed.


More earth work happened.  Here my husband and our son:
