At Home Quilting Retreat (Almost).

This is the weekend the Bonnie Hunter of is giving us the clues for her latest mystery quilt Old Tobacco Road. She is revealing clues all weekend so we can get it done at our own pace. My pace is furious! I have decided I am going to try to get it done this weekend if that is possible. I was up Friday night until 1am and again tonight. Last night I finished 180 4 patches and tonight I finished the 98 pinwheels. I feel like a pinwheel expert. I don't know why I can't get as obsessive as the house? I will be glad when the quilt shack is done so I don't have to clean up all the time to use the kitchen table. I tried to convince Jeff that it would be ok to eat in the living room tonight but again... The Look.

He finished the roof of the quilt shack last night and started on the floor today. It was another scorcher 97 degrees.

The kids and I cleaned out a storage shed today and Jeff took most it to the dump. It was so full of junk that you had to stand at the door and through things in there. The wasps and squirrels or rats had quite the hotel going. But no more! DDs want to make it a play house like their cousins have.

Wow, are you quick! your pinwheels looking great.

I have just started part 2, and I hope I will have it finished soon.
