It's a rainy day today. Next week, we're going to The Lou to sort through some of my grandparents' things and to help my Grandpa with some projects around the house. Pray for us - it'll be an emotional week.
As Oldest Cousin, I'm in charge of keeping the cousins (22 in all, from 2 years old to me - 27) occupied while my mom, aunts and uncles get some work done. I think we'll go to the Science Center, a park or two and maybe stay at the house one day and set up a slip & slide in the backyard.
I inherited my Grandma's fabric stash after all my aunts got the opportunity to go through and take what they wanted. I have tubs and tubs of fabric and I'm using some of it to make quilts. I'm halfway done with my first quilt top. I wanted to have a couple tops done by next week so I could bring them with me, but you know how it goes. While sewing this top together, I've been watching Gilmore Girls. It's comforting and familiar and I know several of my aunts and cousins watch it, so I feel connected to them while I'm hundreds of miles away.
No pics yet; rainy days make for dreary pics, but hopefully I'll have the opportunity to post some later this week.
In the mean time, here are some links to quilt patterns I'd like to use.
First up, the one I'm currently working on: Value Quilt
Next, the ones I like but haven't started yet or don't yet have the skill to execute (no promises!):
