Nancy's quilting/sewing accomplishments

Nanc has been working on her first quilt but today she finished sewing three purses and a table centerpiece! She also got some of her 9 patch blocks sewn together.

Here is some of the fabric she is using in her quilt:

Here's two completed 9 patches!! (she's getting closer!!)

She's doing AWESOME!

New Quilt Project!

So I was highly inspired by this quilt here:
It's called a Ragged Square Quilt. I decided to do it in all different types of fabric and to also change the layout to wonky squares! I LOVE IT!
I spent ALL day cutting fabric for this and tonight I finished sewing my blocks and then sewing them into are lots of pics.
I did 4", 8" and 12" squares for my blocks.

OK, OK....thats just a few of the completed blocks. Tomorrow I will post some pics of my rows and maybe even a finished top!!

Well the children had their end of spring break celebration/camp out last night. They stayed up past midnight and were up bright eyed and bushy tailed at 7:30 this morning...they are going to be a tired bunch come this evening.

Here are a couple pics from last night:

My boots are here!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO thrilled!!! My new Merrell hiking boots are here! YAY! These are the ABSOLUTE BEST hiking shoes! They are specifically designed for women. I am SO excited. They are called Merrell Chameleons. Look!

Well last night we made and canned Apple Jam and Applesauce. Here are some pics of the Apple Jam:

Kyle drew a picture and he said it was all of us driving cross country. The things on the road are Daddy and Kyle in the big moving truck, Miss Lisa and Mommy in the middle vehicle and then Uncle Jimmy in the third vehicle. The swirly looking thing on the bottom is a tumbleweed. Above are some cows and Kyle said that this is in Texas, lol. SO CUTE! I had to share. Especially since my child is not artistic by nature...if he has to color something for school he colors it all one color just to get it done as soon as possible, lol.
Well, I threw my back out last night...not just a little either, I did it BAD. The good thing is that I spent most of the day downstairs sewing and got SO much done! I got all my blocks sewn into rows for MY quilt. Now all I have to do is sew my rows together and sew on my border and my top will be done! YAY!

Today is the last official day of Spring Break. Monday we start school back up and go through until summer. The children are having an "End of Spring Break Celebration" tonight! They built a fort in the living room and are camping out there together tonight.

Grimes Point Petroglyphs

We went to Grimes Point Archaelogical Park (pronounced Grimms Point) on Monday because Eddie was swearing in his friend George for his re-enlistment in the Navy.
There are petroglyphs there!!! Here are some pics:

We found these birds stashed way up in the cave!

And here are the pics from the re-enlistment:

Here are some old cattle troughs and corrals we found too:

We metal detected all around but didn't really find anything. We then drove over to Wonder Stone Mountain and went rock hunting. It is one of only a few places in the world that Wonder Stone is found!
