The quilt top is going postal!

This pic….

is my daughter’s quilt top completed!!!!  It is going postal today Connie says… she is shipping it Priority USPS so hopefully I will have it by Thursday!  Here is a better view of the design she appliqued….

In the mean time I can now make the backing by sewing it together to make a 70″ x 70″ square for the backing. 

I have the cotton batting that will be the sandwich middle.  Yay!

My fingers are begging to quilt!  Just have to get some thread and maybe a new needle for this hefty project and be motivated to “git er done on steroids” as my bff Pam says 🙂  We think Brandi’s surgery will be in June… so I have just over a month to quilt a 64″ x 64″ quilt for her 🙂  May be working on it while she is in surgery if my fingers weren’t so ready! lol

Meanwhile my oldest son and friend DL had a few friends over for the weekend 🙂

they played “Garage Band”and his friend Dan video taped them!  iPhones rock!

DL with his cool guitar!

His friend Brad jamming!

And me and my honey went to the beach… a couple of times 🙂

the water felt good!  Not cold at all 😉

All in all a good weekend was had by all…

What is on your list of things to do this week… before May comes?

Can you believe May 1 is next week!  I can’t but I am glad.  My daughter gets insurance May 1 so we will see how everything plays out.  Your prayers here are coveted.

A drawing my daughter did from beginning to end over the weekend… she did another too even more intricate but she took it to school to show her teacher.. 🙂  More for next time!

Have a blessed day and thanks for visiting!
