Finally - - I got a few more quilts dropped off at my local yarn shop that is a pick up site for Project Linus blankets. These are all pretty much lap size quilts.

These first two incorporate some more of the home decorator fabric that a lady at church gave me a couple years ago. I'm about to get through that 25 yard piece of fabric. Phew!

I had shown you this while it was in the making. Most of it is from my own scrap stash, but the car fabric was donated.

The turquoise with the white "leaves" on this was donated fabric; again the rest is from my scrap stash. I had a good size piece of flannel that worked for the backing of this one.

I've made a couple others (from my own stash only) in the past few weeks that I've decided to keep on hand as baby gifts. But oops, haven't taken photos of those yet.

And yes, I am still knitting: working on granddaughter Isabela's sweater. And just got some yarn this week for one of her big brother's sweaters. I guess it's time to speed it up a bit.

We all had a great time on our family weekend, but I don't think anyone enjoyed it more that little Roman.

And why not when he has big brothers and sisters to stock his very own pool with fish!

Drats, I meant to take more pictures.

Oh, well, maybe next year. By that time, this little guy will most likely be in the other pool with the "big kids".

. . . and the Red, White, and Blue.

Hope your Independence Day weekend is safe and fun-filled.

Mine will be here at home shared with my daughters and their families.
