We have been staying busy with family visiting from Colorado. Son, daughter-in-law and four boys were hereb for three days - little boys are still as busy as ever and require as much refereeing and re-tasking as ever. We loved having them here and they are so enjoying the East coast and all it offers. They got to see the Atlantic Ocean and the USS North Carolina battleship - you would think that walking all over a battleship and then going to the beach would make them tired - it didn't. They got to drive the golf cart all over our property and they got to go to the Children's Museum in Raleigh one day. Fun, fun, fun was the order of each day.
Another son from Colorado will be dropping in this weekend for a couple days and his wife will be here later next week. At least they give us time to wash the linens and buy more provisions and with six children, they do not show up all at once either.
I have returned to my room and have been working steadily this week on my July UFO challenge for Patchwork Times. I knew this number 2 would be called eventually and it is the one with the most to do.
There are lots of blocks with this one and still many to do, but at least the embroidery blocks are done.
Just a small update - I will be coming back very soon with more information on the Stash Manicure Wantobe Quilters Campaign - see my sidebar - you will not want to miss this, especially if you are a Wantobe Quilter. This campaign is to recruit and only help out new quilters - who else will carry on the tradition. Stay tuned for lots of giveaways over on Stash.
