I'm back :) Here's an update on all things quilty!

For awhile there I didn't have anything worthwhile to report and then I started procrastinating...... and things got busy.... my bad people in blog land, my bad :)

I did finish Aunt Gracie's quilt in time to get it appraised and her arrival. I'll tell you more about the appraisal later!
She loved it! Uncle Doug even sang it's praised (you'd have to meet him to know how rare that is!) It was a huge hit all around and I am so proud of that quilt anyway, knowing others loved it to is really nice.

I haven't gotten much progress on the hexi quilt, I want to but I have 2 wall hangings promised before the end of July so they get my attention for right now.

Uncle Jim update: he's all better and the hearing for the officer in question is the 31st of this month.

That doesn't seem like much does it? lol We also had our town fair and circus here for a week and were there every day. Hope (Aunt gracie's middle child) was up with her 3 kids to and we went to the zoo with Payton and her two youngest (her oldest was not interested in going).  This saturday we are going to the pool for Payton and his cousin Corey's 7th birthdays. We are going to do seperate cakes for them but they both wanted a "party" at the pool :) not a hardship as hot as it's been lol.

Now back to that appraisal..... :)

Piecing by Mallorie Anderson- good
Quilting by Charisma Horton-fair
comments: this modern quilt would look good with any decor.
I know, I know, it's still just the quilt top photo. I gave it to my Aunt and planned
to get a picture of her with it finished..... she sent it back with Uncle Doug before
I had a chance!!! (he left a full week before she did)

Appraisal value: $1,650.00

Woo-hoo! I couldn't believe it was worth so much. Couldn't stop grinning all day when that came in. :)
