Blue Pinwheels



It has been a while since I have actually managed to finish anything. So I went digging through my Rainbow Scraps and pulled out the Blue Pinwheel quilt that I worked on during January. It was finished (even had borders!), but needed to be layered and quilted.  I did a simple stitch in the ditch by machine and scallops in the border.  I just finished sewing down the binding, so it is officially done, done.
Kurt took the kids to the beach this morning, they came home all sandy and sunburned:).  Then I got my hair cut and took Sydney to a birthday party. After that it was a couple of loads of laundry and a bit of puttering around the house. Kurt rented Tron and I snoozed through it.  Not a bad Sunday at all.
We've got FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test) testing this week at school so it will be lots of odd schedules and figuring out where to be. I think the rest of the school year is going to be a bit that way, so I'll just go with the flow.
