Missed three weeks of posting to my blog

I feel like I was missing in action.  Partly, I was just all over the place with my quilting. Starting too many projects and not finishing any.  But, I also had the excuse of my grandchildren and my sweet granddaughter is extremely demanding and seems to still have major meltdowns so she requires a lot of my time, attention and energy.  And she creates chaos as she goes. 

This mug rug is one I made for the swap I am in and sent it off to Lori.  Guess I should have changed the orientation of the picture but didn't so you will have tilt your head!   The theme was sewing/quilting.

When I went into a quilt shop with the kiddos (which was on the way from their place to my place and a good hour's drive from one to the other) they spied some Pokemon fabric and were so excited when they found it, I offered to make them a pillowcase each and let them choose some cuff fabric.

I did not make this quilt but I did quilt it and bind it.  It was donated as a quilt top to Quilts of Valour.

I am working on some more preemie quilt donations and am getting carried away using up all the charm squares that I have purchased recently as well as some that I have cut from my kid's fabrics.  

Then my husband went fishing and I was in charge of yard work for a week.  It is hot and dry here in the Pacific Northwest and this is what the front yard looked like after 'cutting' the front grass.  At least the brown looks a little more neat and tidy.  

I decided to make the kiddos a small bag each out of their leftover Pokemon fabric. 

The kiddos went to their other Grandma's for two weeks and then returned and stayed with us while their mom was moving them to a new home.  It was still hotter than hot so we took them to the river to play and swim and stay cool (and tire them out).

We always have wildlife across the street from us... (am diverting from only quilting because these are the things that distract me from getting much done).

I was determined to not get involved in the row by row quilt projects being offered by quilt shops but too hard to resist. This is what I have so far. 

Plus my latest one from A Needle and I.
And last but not least, a 'tush cush' for Modern Guild meeting next week.   We are meeting at a new venue with hard chairs so we were challenged to make a cushion to put on our chair to give us a softer landing! 

Lots of projects almost finished so am hoping August will be a lot more productive?
