Mr. Tucker is feeling much better today. He says thanks and sends a toe nibble (his thing) for all the well wishes.
The hubby is home for the weekend (actually has next week of for vacation...), and my vacation is almost officially over, so things will slow down again. But here is what I finished this morning:
Double Irish Chain using Raggedy Ann and Andy fabrics Mary sent (plus a tan from my stash):
I have a red and white stripe left over from the red, white and black baby quilt that I'm going to use for binding. How perfect! (Hi Skitter!)
For the doll dressed in blue I bought for my March installment of dolls and quilts:
Bento Box in blue. I've liked this pattern from the first time I saw it and this was a good opportunity to try it out. I really really like it now and I think it may go onto the list for big quilt possibilities next time I need one.
I cut and pieced fabrics for the backs and binding for these two, plus the Double Irish Frogs, so they're all ready to be basted and quilted!
We may be having our 9-year-old nephew spend the night tonight, so I may have lots of time to work on these or none. We'll see what he and the hubby expect. Usually they "get into trouble" with me (tease mostly) and want me to be mostly invisible...though the nephew does seem curious about the quilts. (Unfortunately, the entire May family discourages any attempts at creativity, especially by boys.)
No goodies in the mail today to share, but I know there are quite a few blocks on their way, so I'll show them off as they arrive.
Have a wonderful weekend and get to those machines ladies! My scrap challenge still stands!
