Busy Start to Summer.

The day after I got out of school for summer break, we hit the road to our daughter and son-in-laws to attend his graduation as a Radiology Technician. Two years of intensive work done. We are so proud of them both and wish him the best on his boards this coming weekend.

We celebrated Father's Day:
 

And for the last four day's I've had this little Ninja Warrior in the house as we enjoyed our first Grammy Camp of the summer: (Don't ya love how silly 3 1/2 years olds are!)

He and Jackson continue to enjoy running and playing together in the backyard as I garden:

We also spent afternoons across the street at my neighbors swimming with his "summer friend". The boys are four days apart...so it's become a tradition for us Grandmas to get them together each summer. And did ya know that the "Hulk Man" loves Dutch Bro? Who would have guessed! 

 If I look tired....I AM! LOL!! But oh how much we cherish these Grammy Camps.
I love your buddy!
(Meme, why do you call me Buddy? Because I love you. Oh, Okay. thank you Meme) THE BEST!
 I'm off to pack him up as we get ready to meet his parents. (We drive and meet at a half way point as they live three hours away) and then I'm packing for my Sewing Retreat!!!!! YES!!! A weekend of sewing!! I'm so pysched! I have all my WIP to pack and may be up to midnight doing so...but with three uninterrupted days of sewing ahead...I can't wait!! I've missed my sewing and need to find a new routine of getting more sewing in. This is the perfect way to kick of my summer! Stay tuned.

Eye Spy Inspiration!

Fresh off the quilting frame this morning is this twin size Eye-Spy quilt 
created by Nancy who blogs at PugMom Quilts:
Those of you who participated in last year's Eye-Spy Swap here at Val's Quilting Studio, will notice many of our four inch blocks in Nancy's finish. I like how she alternated four patches of eye-spies with a single large eye-spy block. Good idea!

 I had fun quilting this one with this truck, plane, train and helicopter pantograph. 
Just perfect for the four year old little guy Nancy made this quilt for. 
Don't forget my summer quilting deal:

Tuesday Archives #163: Scrap Storage

Welcome to the linky party that rejuvenates your old quilting/sewing posts!

This week's theme is: SCRAP STORAGE

How is it we've been doing Tuesday Archives for so long and we haven't featured scrap storage!
Many of you are familiar with my "buckets" of strips:

I like to cut my scraps into 2-3 strips and sort them by color into these cute buckets. Once they are full a scrappy project is always sure to follow. But my scrappy habit doesn't stop there! I have two other scrappy habits. Click right HERE to check out my 2013 post: Fabric Scrap Storage.
