No Pics today, try again tomorrow

BUT I have to put in a little note anyways.
Im home again, a bit early. I was suppose to go on vacation for almost two weeks for quilting and relaxing. But Mom (hubbys mother) was put in the hospital and then an emergency happened so he had to fly down on his birthday weekend. And I came home early to run the house before it fell down from neglect hehehe.
I did take some pics, but the camera is still packed so I need to get it, offload and put up the pics. Give me a few hours to get that under control!
My summer cq block is ready to be mailed! I wish I had taken a before/after so you could see what had been done before I ruined it. but I didnt take a pic, silly me.

Have a great day!

Crazy Busy!

Fall themed block, what I think Fall represents here in the lovely Idaho State
Winter themed block, notice the deer in the center? Each season has a center motif :)
Spring themed block, not finished yet but it sure is pretty already!

Here are my crazy quilt blocks for season themed swap. I have not taken pics of the finished blocks after they were returned to me. Because I havent gotten the spring one back yet! And right now I am working on putting stitches and beads onto the summer themed block so I dont have a pic of it yet. Im waiting on a crochet pansy to put onto the summer block and hasnt arrived just yet :)

Also this past weekend I built two raised garden boxes (4 ft x 8 ft x 12 in) and filled one up with dirt and planted 16 tomato plants! I was feeling the pain in my neck and shoulders for a couple days after that experience! It didnt help matters that I worked 8 days straight and had 1 day off, went to wally world and packed 16 bags of potting soil into my trunk cuz nobody was around to assist with loading. Ooooh! Honey will you rub my shoulders please?? PLEASE???? Pretty Pleaaaaaaaase???

Now Im working another 8 days straight, and immediately tuesday morning very early I am leaving for a week of sewing at my best friends house! Yippee!!! I havent decided yet what I am taking to work on and I have been too busy to think about it! hahah.

Now Im running off to work in an hour so I need to get ready.
