Enjoying Summer Vacation

I need to take a photo of my Orange Crush progress. I have really been working on getting caught up. I finished step 3, and have done all the half-square triangles for step 4. Seven step 4 blocks are completed. I have also done all the cutting for step 5. I hope to be caught up by the end of this weekend. The only problem is I also need to get caught up on the housework that has fallen behind in these last few frantic weeks of school and wedding frenzy. Sewing is so much more fun than housework!!!

The above photo is a Little Quilts house quilt that I hand pieced and hand quilted while I was doing my internship for teaching. I gave it to my mother and it hangs in her house. It is very cute - in my opinion. LOL I decided to put it here to add some interest to my post, since I don't have any new photos. I am ready to enjoy my summer vacation and, as usual, have lots of plans. Of course, I will be lucky if I do even half of the things I plan to do. Wish me luck!

I'm in Alabama, too, and FREE from school for summer vacation! If you're like me, you want to sew like crazy all summer! I like your house quilt. I'm handquilting a an Amish style quilt these days (really, years) and hope to get it done sometime.
