Vacation Time!

I just found out that my local quilt group will be meeting next Saturday, June 1! Boo Hoo!
I will be leaving on Saturday for California! YAY! My oldest granddaughter is graduating from 8th grade. Can't miss that!! She has grown so fast since we left California!

I hate missing the quilt meeting, but there will be more meetings but not more 8th grade graduations!

I worked on my string basket weave quilt blocks and got 10 more done today. I also cut more strips from my scraps. I need to get to my other stash in the little trailer to get other fabric for strips so I can get more variety in the blocks. I keep seeing the same fabric in the blocks and I want it to have a lot of variety. So tomorrow I go rummaging in the little trailer that I use for storage. LOL! I will be knee deep in fabric looking for strange, different and wonderful patterns of fabric!!

My husband and friends have almost finished building our storage shed .. . YAY! Then all will be neatly piled into that building and goodby old little trailer that barely holds anything..

The weather has been reallly nice the last few days. Nice sun, a little sprinkle here and there and a gentle wind to cool everything.  My trees are starting to leaf, a little late this year. That's because spring came late this year, it's been a very cold winter but very dry, virtually no snow this past winter and now no rain. We need rain, this will be the fourth year of our drought in New Mexico.

I also worked on hand quilting the baby quilt for our neighbors great granddaughter expected in August or September.

So all in all it was a productive day!
Keep on quilting everyone!
