Brown Centered Strings

Our Heartstrings group is having a Memorial Day Sew in - and I thought between Graduation, parties, and chores I might get a few done..

I have 8 completely finished, 5 more to trim, and maybe 15 in process.... who knew my string bin had gotten that full?

I also worked on my Jacobs ladder quilt - the last 2 blocks... are Sewn COMPLETELY WRONG!!! I guess I should have payed attention - so I tore one out last night and will get to the next one today,


I was Crazy Crafty on Friday - 
I made Graduation cards for the kids..
So many of them participate in the same things we do so I sort of had pictures!!


And LTC T - 

This is Memorial Day
We were priveledged to meet him
and present him with a Quilt of Valor



He has two little boys, so we made sure to get him a bigger one
He told me it was awesome - all three of them can snuggle under it!


My Early Morning walk today
I LOVE airplanes

Love the strings!! I have so many I'm almost afraid to even start with them cuz it's gonna take a while to use so many :)

I made 48 HS blocks and 16 string log cabin blocks this weekend and notice no difference in my strings. I'll never tame those bins!

Nice strings.... I wish I could do some too but I've got way too many things going now! I need to finish UFOs!

Those brown heart string blocks are really masculine looking, and I love it! Many thanks to LTC T!

Prett strings. It's hard to get much done graduation week. Looks like you did OK.
