finally friday...

I really shouldn't complain, I have awesome pregnancies.  But holy smokes I'm so tired! 

We came back from our trips and weeks of upturned schedules with colds/coughs and though mine is small, it's keeping me from getting any good sleep at night so the rest of the family is really hearing about it during the day!!
I'm not as productive as I'd like to be, which is super frustrating as I know my time is limited...

Anyway, I gifted a quilt to my best friend/sister during our vacation and wouldn't you know it?  I didn't take a single picture of the finished thing....So this is what it looked like as a top.  It's mostly Moda Blue Raspberry solid, and Pat Bravo's Summerlove for Art Gallery with a few other prints thrown in.  The pattern is one from Camille Roskelly. 

The back was more bigger pieces of Summerlove, the last of the Blue Raspberry, and a big strip of white.  I hate making backings...it's so tricky... I cut up even more Summerlove and did a scrappy binding that looked pretty awesome.  And she LOVED it so that was the best part, of course!

I'm working on getting this one done next to mail to my step-dad.  Yes, we were just there to celebrate his 75th birthday (the surprise party was a huge hit, btw, and the whole trip was fantastic!), but I didn't get it done in time....
I've since filled in those rows with more white, and got it basted yesterday.  I kindof want to keep it but I've got enough DS fabrics to make another one just like it. 

I'm so glad it's the weekend!  Such a sigh of relief.  We just picked up the Mr. from work (his birthday is next week!) and he has already taken the kids to the park so I can make dinner in peace!  Nobody took a nap today and everyone neeeeeeds one, so that was fun.  

Oh! And one more thing....Happy National Donut Day!
