Friday Finishes: An update

We have been enjoying a gorgeous, hot, sunny, fabulous July. Not how our summer had been progressing, the switch up is invigorating.

Pinned Jordan's quilt! Yeah! Started the quilting! Yeah! No tucks, pleats or other unwanted additives on the back so far. Progressing nicely. No picture of the quilt, however, a picture of Jordan making muffins with mommy. A fabulous helper!

Well right up until I remembered a birthday. Stopped everything and started these placemats. I only have enough backing for two. Is it too crass to give them unbound and two for the birthday and then two for Christmas? I will have to think on how heartless I can be. It is the thought that counts right? I have been told by my son-in-law (not the recipient) that if it is not finished, it is not a present!

My cousin is coming to town. I have given it due consideration and have decided I cannot finish her quilt I two days. I do however have a couple more blocks done. 

Star quilt stalled due to trimming error as I was mindlessly following the directions. Note to self, engage brain when cutting. Sewing, brain optional as it can be undone! I have given it a great deal of thought and decided how to fix it. Easy peasy, just need to do it.

One brothers quilt is done and in the mail! The other is still in squares. I will post the pictures when I know he has received it.

On the personal front, June was not great. My anniversary was on the fifth and then there was Father's Day. The girls and I are all very sad. Grieving. And sad. So we have chatted about it and decided we can be sad, it is okay. We do not need to get over it, it is a journey that will last the rest of our lives, and we can be present to each stage. That being said it is time to buy groceries and cook something. So did buy groceries, have not yet cooked. One small step at a time.
