Hello everyone, just a short post and a picture before the first HS football game of the season. We have two high-schoolers in two different schools, we work out a schedule in advance for whose game to attend on Friday nights. We don't go to away games, we do go to Homecoming games and Senior Nights. We pay the most attention to the halftime shows, because both of our high-schoolers are part of their school bands. This flimsey is a recent one, a Schnibbles pattern called Cindy Lou Who, mine is about 33" square, as I started with a bunch of HSTs that were already cut out. This one makes me smile!

I think this has been one of the fastest summers on record. The kids have already started marching band practice and volleyball practice, DD#2 had her senior pictures made, DD#1 is leaving for college in a few days. I am never ready for the end of summer, I always need another two weeks! The flimsy I am showing you today came about from a swap in 1999, I think I put the top together in 2009. It was quite an international swap, with blocks coming from Australia, Germany, Scotland, and the USA. In the next few weeks, in preparation for another swap, I will be making nine-patches for the Great Nine Patch Celebration Exchange hosted by Julie K. at juliekquilts.blogspot.com.
