Remember these? The pieces have been sitting in a little plastic bag on the stairs for weeks, gently accusing me of abandoning them. And yes, it's been that long since I actually did anything but sweep around them with a lick and a promise.

This week has just been a full out marathon of work, meetings, planning, and more meetings. End of the school year stuff mostly. We have nine more school days left. Not that I'm counting it down or anything...

Anyway, I finally picked up the bag halfway through the week and have spent a few minutes here and there sewing posies, trying to preserve my sanity. And that's about all the sewing I have accomplished this week.

I've got two sides for the border on Pam's round robin quilt finished--exactly where I was last Sunday. Most of the remaining pieces are cut and just waiting for me to get busy at the sewing machine. That is my plan for this afternoon.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there in blogland!

Happy Mother's Day to you! Will you have a free Summer once school is out? Will you have time to "play".

I'm envious of your GFG posies - I started a GFG last year and have quite a few flowers done but for the life of me I can't figure out how to connect them with the path. grrrr!!! Maybe I need to pull them out and just play till I "get it". Yours are very, very cute!

In Australia our school year ends in December, the end of the year. It sounds weird hearing you talk of school ending now,lol.
I do understand that it is your summer though. Have a great break!

What pretty GFG posies. It reminds me that I have some of those to finish up. Your blocks look happy like sunshine.

Happy Mother's Day to you! Hang in there, not too much longer until school is out for summer!

Love the way the Hexagon flowers are coming together. We also have our end of year in December (South Africa)and it's quite discouraging to have to keep working while you all get to go on holiday! lol I hope you have a great break.

One thing that I love about quilting is can be left untended and will remain exactly the same until I get back. I'm glad to see you have found a few minutes for your hexagons - they really are looking great *s*

Lovely posies!
Hope your Mothers Day was a happy one.

I love Grandmother's Garden...but I don't have the patience for it.

Yours turned out great though.

I'm sorry I'm just getting around to welcoming you to the ring. Glad to have you!

Here's a blog you might enjoy: among other things, it's about a big Civil War buff. I don't know how much you're still into the Civil War, but it's a good blog.

The hexagons are very addictive. As Libby says - they never go anywhwere, so you can slways pick them up.
