Lotsa Things Goin On

Lotsa things going on around here.....We're heading into the home stretch on the addition. Next Monday starts the sanding and staining of the hard wood floors so with a LOT of luck and the construction inspector gets here, we can have Jen in her apt. by July 7th...YAY. The sun came out this afternoon....YAY....and I had a vacation day today to do with what I wanted.
I started out the morning my mailing a birthday present to Robin and a little something to Michelle, did some banking, and then took a quick trip to Quilting Possibilities... I needed a quilt shop fix, besides, I had a gift card from Mother's Day that was burning a hole in my pocket. I found some fruit ladies fabric for one of the girls I work with. I bought the end of the bolt which amounted to just about 1 yard. I got my last kit for the All Roads Lead to the Sea quilt, 3 fat zippers to make some zippit bags and the floral fabric is already quilted and it's for a tote. Then I found a mint green with white dots and a white with mint green dot for an old project I'd like to work on. Robin is a little nervous that I'm turning into a fru fru girly girl but I'm not....I still love my Thimbleberries but it's summertime (at least that's what the calendar keeps saying) and in the summertime I like to work with some fru fru fabrics....

Then, I went and got my nails done (OK Robin so I am turning into a girly girl, who cares LOL) and then came home and worked on one of my BPF UFO Challenge Projects. Here's a quick peek at it.... I need to finish the binding and then I'll show a full picture of the finished project.
I will have some pictures of the addition after tomorrow.
The builder will be here at the crack of dawn to do more so I'll take some pictures later tomorrow. Most of today's stuff was leaders, gutters, air conditioning unit etc.....

Sounds like it was a really fun day. Any day that includes a quilt shop fix is fun!
