WIP Wednesday 6.8.22

 Happy to be settling in on summer fun.  Here's some of the things that happened this week:

I finished playing with the green scraps with the RSC22 group.  Green was the color for May.  As I put the green scrap bin away I will be grabbing the bright and dark blues.  Here are the green HST's I made for my HST Three, Six, Nine quilt.

I finally loaded the Iced Lollies onto the longarm frame.  It shouldn't take long to quilt.  This is my OMG quilt for June.  I try to work on it a little each Sunday.  I am quilting it with Circle Lord "Jesters".

My professional sorter and I sorted fabric scraps given to me from people.  It took three hours and a lunch for $11.09 from KFC, but it is done.

This is the before picture:

Below is the AFTER picture.  Ahhh!  So much better!
My husband has been working on the pool project.

I'm happy that we started putting water into the new pool.  This pool is long overdue.  Our other pool that came up to my waist lasted about 10 years!  We definitely got our money's worth from that one.  Hopefully this one will get great use too.  We're thinking it will be about as deep as my chest.  Can't wait to play in it on hot, summer days.  With the price of gas, it seems like a good investment.

It was a super fun day at the Akron Rubber Ducks game.  Our son was part of the pre-game activity where he got to play an inning with the teams on the field.  He loved seeing himself on the big screen.  Afterwards he got a free little meal.  Obviously with his pinkie out drinking his pop we also enjoyed watching some of the Royal Jubilee on tv this week. LOL.  When in doubt, pinkies out.  ha ha.

I'm linking up at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers 335.

I'm making great progress on my 2022 UFO Challenge!

Owen did a great job on those scraps! The pool will be nice to have right outside your door so you don't have to drive anywhere. How fun to play with the Ducks!

Nice scrap sorting! Hope the pool gives you great summer fun. I have to admit I am not a pool person. Putting on a swimsuit is trauma enough. Lots of great projects making headway.
