Wow, its been a while. I have not been able to craft because I was so focused on working on my Master's Degree. I think I wrote 3 papers and completed my capstone project which included a video presentation, over the last 4 weeks. So, I am now on the brink of finishing my MBA! Just two more exams and I am done! I cannot wait until I can't count this as a finished project. My goal is to be done done done by the first day of fall. For me, taking exams is easier than writing papers so I really think I can do it by then.
We are on vacation this week and my mother is in town so we have been having a lot of fun with our little guy and he is enjoying his granny and she is enjoying him. I am getting spoiled because my mother is doing lots of cooking and cleaning! Yeah! Hey, I did not ask...its just what she does. Who am I to stop her? Seriously, I am so so grateful for her.
Since we are on vacation, I got a chance to do a little crafting today. This is a combination of the Jelly Roll Race Quilt seen here:
And some fence rail blocks for borders. I think this is the final incarnation of my red, black and white quilt. I will probably add an additional solid red border and make a scrappy binding for this one. I did not work with a jelly roll. I cut a ton of red/black/white strips and just followed the process seen in the video. I had already made several fence rail blocks because I was originally planning an entire fence rail quilt. But I really like how this is turning out so far. Check it out:
The lighting is terrible but it really is turning out nicely. I like the scrappiness of it all!
Finally, take a look at my two favorite fellas on Father's Day. We went to see Sesame Street Live and a good time was had by all!
Since I will be studying intently over the next few months, I am not sure when I will participate again in this WIP Wednesday Linky party. But I will be checking it out every week and so should you if you are looking for inspiration!
