progress!

Well, I've gotten a few things done this week! Yeah! First off, the kids camera cases! The Boy Scout one is obviously David's (left over fabric from his birthday quilt that he will get in November!), Elizabeth chose monkey fabric, and Anna's is the pink tiger print... :o)


I also finished up my Emma's Legacy quilt top, all I had left to do was put the two borders on it. This was made with the fabrics that I had won from Carrie (Miss Rosie's Quilt Company) a few months ago. It is her pattern, as well. It looks complicated, but went together really easily! I love these fabrics!

Next was Block 4 of the "Holidays At Home" BOM. The center block was already done (month 2) but this month we added everything from those 9-patch blocks out, to frame the center block. This now measures 22-1/2" square. Only two more months to go on this one! :o)

And last but not least, I had been meaning to post this pic the kids took last month when they went to the park down the block - they took it with their cell phone... (Yes, I'm a meanie, they share a cell phone! They are only 12!)

It is Elizabeth in blue, David, then Anna in the red shirt. And of course, Jimmy in the front... :o)
Hope everyone is having a good week! Next, I am working on my PIF gifts... :o)

So busy! The camera cases are wonderful - I may have to try my hand at making one for my niece. And I don't think you are a meany for making them share a phone. At 12, I just don't think they need one. One of my almost-8-year-old's friends just got his own phone, and now my kids are clamoring for one, but my resounding NO drowns out all protestations!

Angela, you must have a million arms, you get so many quilt projects done. I agree no 12 year old needs a cell phone. Great photo of your family.

Your kiddos are beautiful! I love, love, love the camera bags -- you know which is my favorite, LOL!

What a great picture of the kids! I've never had a cell phone picture turn out that well. Of course my phone is way out of date so that could explain it. I don't know either how you get so much done! I've been really lazy about everything lately.
