Tuesday already

My how the days seem to fly past. We have been having unseasonably warm weather for Seattle spring - it was up to 87 last week. Matched a record from the 1950's. Sunshine meant good weather for outdoor activities - yardwork and a BBQ for a Kenyan friend graduating from the U. of W. Sunday was a birthday party for a 1 year old and then a Seattle Mariners game (which we won!)

But today looks to be a more typical grey with some drizzle. Perfect quilting weather. Yesterday I went to help out at the Stone Soup Quilting group and folded fabrics for quilt backs. Last night I managed to finish up the top I was given to complete. These are backed, quilted and bound and given to folks at the Fred Hutchison Cancer Center who are undergoing treatment.
I also managed to finish up the top of the Nine Patch Wonder, started at the LQG Day Camp. Now to think about whether this should be a wedding gift for my nephew recently married or for my brother who just announced that he will be getting married in September. [He swore he would never do this again - this is #3 - but seems very happy and his boys really like her. Go figure.]

If it isn't obvious, these are the very few scraps left over from the 9-patch. I was getting worried when I finally got to the borders, but managed to have enough.

Some of you may remember I talked about the big church rummage sale, earlier in the year. Today is the past-sale lunch where decisions are made re how to spend the $18,000 raised. A lot, huh? And around here, decisions need to be made re which UFO to start on next? There is no shortage of them, either!

Three and a half weeks and we head out for Glacier National Park - I'm excited.

The log cabin is beautiful and will make such a nice gift to those recieving cancer treatment.

That is amazing that your Church raised such an amount! Great job! :)
