I hope that you are able to wrap up all of your June plans. July is just around the corner! That makes is a holiday week for those of us in the US. Best of all, a new color is coming up soon. (July is going to be red with accents of maroon, in case you are planning ahead) I've finally started working on Anna's dorm room quilt for college, it is blue. She leaves is just a month and a half. She chose a framed hexie pattern
. It goes together with half hexies made from jelly rolls. She picked a beautiful collection of batiks to start and I've been adding in with strips from the scrap bin. Everything is cut now, and the blocks are about half sewn at this point. After that it gets sewn together in rows.
I heard noises at the front door and thought it might be a package delivery. Turns out it was an armadillo checking out our front patio. Just a little guy, isn't he cute? Too bad they carry leprosy. I hear that they taste like chicken. Seriously, I would never do that. Look at how adorable he is.
Summer vacation always means work around the house. I've been scrubbing baseboards and painting inside. The screens isn't something I am able to do though, so we hired someone to come in and make repairs. Four guys for two days had them looking as good as new again. On the list for next is polishing wood floors and scrubbing tile. Not the most glamorous summer vacation, but it has been productive.

Just wait till that armadillo starts digging huge holes in your yard and you won't think he's so cute! Anna's quilt is going to be lovely but it looks like a lot of work.
I enjoyed getting a peak at Anna's quilt - what a neat pattern! Summer vacation for teachers is just a different kind of work, isn't it?! :)
Linking in my six month check-in post since so many of the quilts were part of previous years' RSC efforts.
Love the half hexie pattern Anna chose. It's very SCIENCE-like! Reminds me of molecules!
There's a lot to be said for productivity in any form. I like Anna's quilt! Have fun with that one!
I like your daughter's quilt choice, it's looking great so far. Angela, you have so much energy, I'm not sure how you get everything done, I'm tired just thinking about it (housecleaning etc.)
I have never seen an armadillo before... how fun that he/she? is just strolling by!
Great idea for your daughter's quilt!
I love the blue hexies in Anna's quilt--great choice!
That's a very fun pattern Anna picked. It's really weird to have them off at college. Thank goodness for texting! Hope you get lots done over the summer. It seems to have already flown by.
