Our irises are blooming this week. I love these flowers. Mark is not such a fan--he thinks they look like the ears of a poodle. That's okay--it doesn't diminish my enjoyment of these gorgeous purple flowers in the least.
Last week, the grandkids began two days of school on campus. Such a change for them. Gabe and Ella are of course at the nearby elementary school. Levi is at the junior high about 20 minutes away.
Charlotte is a freshman at the high school about 20 minutes away, but in an entirely different direction.
The logistics of getting them to school in the morning (they all start at 9 a.m.) and picking them up (they each get out at a different time) is somewhat challenging. While Charlotte and Levi could take the bus, they would have to catch it at 6:45, get to school at approximately 7:20, and then wait until 9 for class to start, not an ideal situation. So between Christa, Mark and me, we have figured out a schedule to make sure everyone is delivered and picked up on time. Mark and I are happy to provide bus service as it gives us yet another chance to have one-on-one time with them, one of the best bonuses of this very strange year.
I picked up three quilts from my awesome longarm quilter, Darby. Once they have been trimmed and bound, you will be seeing more of them.
This one is unnamed at this point.
Flower Bubbles (thanks, Paula--you named this one)
I organized my solids shelves. It was something fun to do while on the computer with tech support one loooong afternoon...
I'm optimistically joining the Nightingale quilt-along with @loandbeholdstitchery and hope to keep up with the schedule. Usually I have high hopes, but after a week or two I kind of fade out, and then a year later I get around (maybe) to completing the quilt. But nevertheless, here are the fabrics I will use.
I'll close with this.
