Week in Review

Grands getting cool in the pool:
Pretty thrift store plates:
Two more "state" plates. Charming is from Michigan. I don't have any connection to Arkansas, but the old-timey green pattern goes with my vintage dinnerware, so I had to have it:
Pretty blue dish to hold three yellow candles:
Finished quilt top with NYC theme:
Here is a close-up of some New York squares. The observant among you will notice the IU square--yes, IU is still in Indiana! The recipient of this quilt is an IU alum:
Another close-up. I just love the Fireworks fabric in the outside triangles:
I am moving right along with quilting Number One of Five quilts in my two-year project. This finished quilt top is Number Five of Five. Yippee! All since January 1st.
This morning I *found* the public rooms of the house under a Hansel and Gretel trail of toys that the grandbabies hid from me throughout the week. I think I saw all four everyday--now *That* is a great week!!

Spending time with the grandchildren always makes for a great week!!

Lovely thrift store finds, even lovelier quilt top! You'll have your quilts finished up in less than two years I think.
