~I should be packing, instead I am on this darn computer~

Only 2 more days until we move back into our house We left in the middle of the night on February 24th and have not been back since. It’s been an incredibly long  process. There were many times that I could hardly make myself go back and look at the house. I know things had to be done, and it was excruciatingly slow at times. If you have to rebuild then sometimes you have to tear down. That was the hard part, watching the destruction after the tree fell.  But brick by brick, board by board, shingle by shingle, walls have been rebuilt, repainted, re-insulated. New wooden floors were laid. We are finally almost ready to go home. It is very exciting for us. I hope to have a few pictures soon.

In the meantime, I want to share a few things I have been working on trying to pass the weeks waiting to go home.

Remember the Bama Bound Quilt Project, well, I made just one more quick quilt. I used a fabric bundle from FabricWorm and one of my favorite quilt pattern from Amy At A Commonplace Life,  it’s  the Roundabout Quilt Pattern. It’s so fun.

 I really love this pattern. Here is the back:

Label:

Got into a little scrap with this corner of the binding, I did not win.

I really love the back.

Let me just show you a little peek of the animals I have been knitting like a mad woman.

These patterns all come from Barbara Prime. Her patterns are adorable! The best part is that you work on each piece one by one. Perfect for watching tv after a long day of work. It’s a leg here, an arm there, before you know it you are ready to assemble. My daughter loves each one, so I guess that is a good indication for how darn cute they are.

 

 

 

Well, this is what I’ve been up to lately. Hope you all are enjoying your summer. I am ready to hurry up and get home and get my kitchen gear back in use. I really miss my  “no knead”  bread, home-made pizza, and my green smoothies. Why did I let them pack up all of my things? I guess it will be that much sweeter when I get home.

*** Another time suck? Pinterest. Do you do it? So fun, but it is a time killer.
