Wow! What a busy couple of weeks, with little signs of slowing.
We got the twins rooms finished, shelves in the closet, stars up on the ceiling.
I quilted like a mad woman, and got the pineapple quilt finished.
This quilt is for DD#2 and her DH, and since they were coming down this weekend, I wanted to have it on the guest bed finished for them as a surprise. It took some long quilting days, but it was done and they loved it. It was definitely one of those times I wished I wasn't cramming the quilt through a DSM. Someday, I'd really love a sit-down long arm.
Saturday was DS the Younger's going away party. It was abnormally hot, so we had some no-shows, but we still had 26 people show, which is respectable. He leaves for the Army next week, and I doubt I'll see him again before he leaves. He is spending as much time as possible with his wife, which is as it should be.
We had planned to do DD#2's birthday dinner on Sunday night, but that got changed to Monday night just to give me a break, since they had already decided to stay an extra day.
Tonight was the birthday dinner, and there were 11 for dinner, I think anyway. I'm pretty out of it right now, and I may have forgotten someone.
I kept thinking the scooter event was this next Saturday, but it's actually Sunday. There is still a lot to do for that, but it will all come together. DH is expecting around 40 I think.
I plan on starting to quilt on another quilt tomorrow. We'll see if that really happens or not. I'm doing a smaller one next, about twin sized, so I'm hoping to knock it out pretty quickly.
What a Sweet Retreat!
