It's been a busy week, but it doesn't feel like I've accomplished much

Yesterday I managed to put the Heartstrings top together, make the backing and they are waiting to be pinned to the longarm. I also put most of the Depression block quilt together and finished the second block of the QFAH quilt. Today I finished the Depression block quilt, made a backing and it is waiting to be quilted. I also started putting together the QFAH top. And yesterday I made the second star for the Midnight Silhouette quilt. Today I did cut out the pieces for another, but haven't put it together yet. And I picked up a baby quilt top and backing a friend made for charity that I'm going to quilt for her also. So, nothing finished, but I have moved a few things further on towards the end.
Mostly today, we met Steph and the boys in Rockford at the mall so AJ could play in the little play area, we could talk and Will could be held by Grandma and Grandpa. Then we had lunch at the Granite City Brewery - which is relatively new at the mall, and Steph went back home and so did we. Didn't do much of anything, but boy are Grandma and Grandpa tired tonight! vbg


Gratitudes:
Healthy grandchildren.
Nice lunch today -- lots of food, so dinner was a bowl of soup.
JR napping at my feet.

What beautiful grandchildren you have! And, ya know, you got more done this week than I did!

It sounds to me that you got a lot of things accomplished. Just imagine how many things are closer to completion.

You accomplished way more than you're giving yourself credit for. It seems we all are feeling a sense of lack of accomplishment this week.

I think you got a lot done myself-moved many projects right along-two waiting to be quilted is fantastic-and spending time with the grandchildren-well, sounds a perfect day to me!

I really like the look for your Midnight Silhouetee blocks. The dark on dark is great. As a grandmother of two little ones I know how much fun they are and also how tiring!
