This has been one summer that I'll be glad to see end...it's been an eventful one for us. You know...one of those seasons of life where curveball after curveball is thrown at you? But through it all, God was in control and we knew He would be faithful and bring us through! The truth is, we are incredibly blessed and fortunate and we know that no matter what, we will be okay.
I haven't spent much time sewing or blogging this summer and I hope that will soon change too! I miss reading my favorite blogs and keeping up with all of you.
I did finish the binding on my Pineapple quilt. I love, love, love it! I think I've mentioned before, the blocks were made with Gyleen Fitgerald's pineapple template. It's awesome! If you haven't had a chance to try it...you must!
I was so pleased with my corners...I just altered the block to fit. :)
There is still a lot going on in our house over the next few months, including sending this guy off to his first active duty assignment. Our son, Zach, will begin pilot training next week! Such mixed emotions I have...he has worked so hard to achieve this accomplishment, but it also means, he's truly out on his own and starting his own life and career. So far, we've racked up 27 years as a military family, and to think of the years and experiences that lay ahead of him...it's just almost too much to grasp. God bless, son! I am proud beyond words. You will do great!
We also have some traveling coming up and I have TWO quilt retreats this fall...I will do my best to stay connected with all my blogging buddies!
