Works in Progress

With school back in session I have been a busy girl. (Feels great.) Here are a few peeks at some of the things I'm working on. (I can't take any credit for the painted rock.)
Half square-triangles. Random wanna-be stylish picture hastily taken while I should have been making dinner before our last soccer double-header of the season.
Kind of mixed emotions about soccer ending. It will be nice not to have our Saturdays and week-nights dictated by two kids' soccer schedules. But, it was a gorgeous night with great views. And how can you not root for a team of 6-year-olds called the Gray Squids?

  3. I love the pattern you've chosen for the French General Rouenneries fabrics (my current favorite line!). It will be a beautiful quilt when you're finished

  15. Gray Squids = way better than the year my daughter's team voted to be called Black Panthers. And none of the coaches saw an issue with that.

  20. Such pretty things. I love red in quilts.

    It cracks me up how the team names are always, always based on the color of the uniforms. One year my daughter's team was the Green Dragonflies, but that was long for cheering parents to shout, and eventually got shortened to Green Dragons.
