 No sewing done lately.  I spent a week looking at this view.  It's Mount Rainier in Washington state.
And playing with this sweet thing!  Sadly her mother wouldn't let me bring her home as my souvenir from the trip.

Sew Long for Now

I finished the June Color Me Happy block.  I still have not done the May Memory Lane row yet.  I am trying to get caught up.  I am going on my trip and the day after I come back is the next Memory Lane meeting.  I so hate to be behind, but I may not get it done before I leave because I have to do a lot to get our youngest ready for encampment.  He is leaving while I am gone and the list of things to purchase and the patches to sew on his uniform are long.
I finished my sister's quilt.  I tried to take a good picture, but it was overcast and it just doesn't do it justice.

So, I tried taking a closer shot of it with the backing showing so yo could get a better look.  I mailed it yesterday and hopefully today or tomorrow she will receive it.
On my sewing table is the May row for the Memory Lane quilt, two blogger BOM's, my MIL quilt, and cutting out my second cross quilt.

My sewing was interrupted this week by the birth of my first grandchild!  Isn't she adorable?  I did get my sister's quilt finished machine quilted.  I am so far behind on things though and I have a week then I am flying to the west coast to meet my granddaughter.  I have to get the binding put on my sister's quilt and mail's a week late and she is going on a trip next week also.  Maybe after my trip I will get caught up on things before my summer guest arrive in August.  I do need to check and find some quilt shops to visit in the Seattle area while I am out there, I have heard great things about the northwestern coast.

It is finished.  This is the green quilt that I did by hand and it took me forever to finish.  The cute cuddly little guy in the right lower corner is Smith our chocolate poodle.
