It’s Friday and we’re heading for a temperature of 69 degrees today with sunny skies. Don is downstate bringing Eric home for the summer. Ransom pretty much paced the floors all night. I guess he for anxious with someone ‘out-of pocket’. Chelsey was working last night so I was forced to quilt alone till she got home (bummer, hah!). I made great progress on My Primitive Garden BOM Square; maybe by the end of the weekend I’ll have a photo to post.

Weekend Plans – we have dinner plans with friends on Saturday night, and we’ll be getting Eric moved back in with his junk. I haven’t had time to put the winter clothes away, but we’ll definitely be swapping those for the summer ones. Mother’s day is coming up so I’m going to get my shopping done to get things in the mail.


I’ve been cutting my blocks out for the 365-day quilt. While I was downstate I picked up this book to guide me with stitches to dress up the blocks. I’m starting the project June 1st, marking Chelsey’s senior year of high school. My last kid, her last year of school and there should be all kinds of events that I don’t want to forget.



Gratitudes:
My hostas waking up after winter
Don and Eric’s safe travel
Cell phones for keeping in touch

I think I have a book with embroidery stitches around here somewhere. I need to check before I buy something. I haven't tried anything too ambitious yet, just the backstitch, stem stitch - but it will be fun to experiment. Enjoy your afternoon and having your son home. That first summer is a fun one.

Sounds like a great weekend. Be sure to post some pix of your blocks from time to time...they will be wonderful with your added touches, from the cover of that book as a sample.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend coming up. The stitchery book looks full of ideas for adding to your journal quilt.

My kids are coming home this weekend too. But Holly is going back after a few days for May-mester. Hate to say it be we have no idea what Adam is doing - I found out he hasn't been going to classes - ughhh.

You sure have intrigued me with the 365 journal quilt. Thanks for the link to the great tutorial. I'm seriously considering this one! Uh oh!
