Well... where to begin...Since my little whirlwind of a somewhat vacation.. I have been going like crazy. My last post was all about my Father-in-law who amazingly turned 100! Unfortunatley, he has passed away since we returned. Couldn't kick the pnemonia this time around.. That happened yesterday, June 19th. Mark is flying back for a week on Monday with his sister, day after my nephew (her son) gets married.
Here are my kidlets Kelly, Steven and Ronna on his property.
Then I came home and I did block # 6 of Christmas quilt..
Then I took on blocks # 1 & 2 of BOW...(block of the week)
Then I did a couple little sampler blocks...
I even did another block on my Pumkin Quilt... which I forgot to take a picture of..
and put the binding on this quilt for a friend...
So... I also finished up with my work, work went until the 18th. Well, not really finished up... 3 of the days I had left after the kids were out, I had to work at the other school. So that left me 2 days after that to do my stuff and I surely wasnt gonna start inventory that I knew I wouldnt be able to finish. I did as much as I could and then said screw it.. I called in sick and started my summer vacation!
Grandpa Levesque accomplished his recent goal in life. He turned 100 years old on June 3rd. All the family from California traveled to Connecticut to celebrate it with him. He was admitted to the hospital the day before but was in good spirits for his birthday.
