Life Back to Normal

WHEW! It's Tuesday and hubby went back to work last night so i spent the evening doing some laundry and just relaxing! He was off for 17 days so needless to say i was ready for him to go back to work so i could spend some time sewing and just doing my own thing! So tonight i spent some time sewing my strips together and below is what the piles look like:
Hopefully later this week i can cut each strip in its 3 1/2" piece and begin sewing the blocks together. Since hubby works this weekend, maybe i'll actually get this quilt put together! That would be wonderful!

The boys quilts should be done at the quilters in the next week so i need to spend some time and get the binding made for them. Other than that, not a lot going on in Ohio...the weather has been cooler than normal which is nice and tomorrow it's suppose to rain.

Have a great week!

How nice that you get "your" time back. My hubbs is retired and he is always in my way. But that is okay, it is better than him not being here. Hugs.
