Onto to next top

Well with the 4th of July over it is time to move on. I have an idea for my next years Independence quilt but that will go onto the back burner for now. I hope I don't forget what my plans are when the time comes in put it together.
We had a really good celebration of our Independence day. Hubby and I just relaxed and puttered around the house, had barbecued Kabobs and some salad, then went for a motorcycle ride. What would be more American than riding your Harley on an American Holiday? We went to the home of a very dear ex co-worker of mine. We had lost contact with each other in the past few years but now I hope that changes. She is a dear to me and I enjoy her company very much. She certainly has her hands full, raising 4 beautiful children. Her faith is very deep and it shows in her love and devotion to her family. It was refreshing to see such a strong family and so much love between family and friends during our visit.
I did not work the last two days. I did housework, very little, and a lot of sewing. I completed the top I was working on before I took the brief pause to make my 4th of July quilt. I have it loaded and started to quilt. I hope to have it completed this week-end. I want to get things cleaned out of the way, so I can get prepared to start on Judy's Hour A Day quilt for July. I am very excited to make this quilt. It is the pattern I was so desperately wanting it to be. I have to get the fabrics out and cut so I can jump in on Monday when she starts posting the instructions. I might have to fall behind on the first week as I will be working 5 days next week. I figure if I get started with having all the fabrics pulled and cut maybe I can keep up. Oh well, its not a race and if I fall behind I can always catch up on the week end.
I best get to sewing so I can get done with the top this week-end. I will post when completed. Good evening or should I say morning as it is past midnight.

I'm glad you had a good holiday. You got lots of sewing in, plus a motor cycle ride.
