Way overly optimistic!!!! I really thought by now I would have my Scrappy Stars quilt done. I set out to "just finish the borders" and quickly realized there was a lot more involved then I thought. First off there needed to be 3 l/2 inch light squares around the entire outer edge of the center...job done!! Then I realized each border (yep 4 sides) has one row of 3 1/2 inch half square triangles and two rows of light 3 1/2 inch squares. Very time consuming so as you can see I have two sides done. At least some progress has been made.
Last week was filled with lots of family time. Our girl was home for three days and we enjoyed every minute of having her here. That doesn't happen very often. We even had a trip to the San Diego Zoo. I knew that girl has been working too long with her giraffes because she has morphed in to one!!! We met up with her old room mate and fiance for dinner and that was tons of fun.
Saturday we had a family birthday party for my father in law who turned 88....the most wonderful 88 you could ever imagine. Both of my in laws are very active and full of life. We had the best time and all our kids were there. My sister in law coordinated the meal, with all of us bringing a dish. Baby Polka Dot really enjoyed the day. His favorite was the gift bag that was laying empty on the floor and the musical card we got dad. He kept opening and closing it to hear the music...so cute! We were missing my two nephews and their families because they were at baseball tournaments for their kids. We have some amazing athletes in the family and we are all so proud of them. My much" younger" sister in law and my nephew, niece and her boyfriend also were there. So much eating, so much laughing, so much great family time! I am very grateful for the extended family I have.
We are still having the weirdest weather here.....63 degrees yesterday. Now I am lovin' it because that heat and I don't get along so I am soaking up every bit of coolness.
This week I really am planning on having my Scrappy Stars done..I don't think there are any other surprise borders to be added! Happy mid week to everyone!!!!
