Quiltathon Plans Gone Astray

Judy L at Patchwork Times was hosting a Quiltathon that started Thursday.  
When she first announced it, I was so excited.  
I started making my plans.  

You know what they say about plans...
I'm OK with the change in plans.  

Thursday we went to the fair.
The fair is so much more fun with kids.

Friday was spent running around town.
Here, there, everywhere.
Lots of knitting time.

After another trip to town in the morning and more knitting time, 
I spent most of Saturday canning green beans.
Ernie worked around outside.
Later in the afternoon, we went for a walk up the hill to check the bees.
  Then it was Saturday night pizza picnic on the deck
with Crystal and the kiddos.

Finally today I played with fabric.  
I sewed on my Pineapple Crazy Blocks this morning while Someone slept in.
I needed to get these fabrics ironed and ready to cut for the next 2 strips swaps.
Now I'm going to cut my strips and get them ready to mail tomorrow. 

I got a lot done in the last 4 days.
I guess that's a good way to spend my Quiltathon time.

Sounds like a productive four days to me!

WOW! You have certainly accomplished a lot! I've been rather l-a-z-y this weekend, other than working at food pantry yesterday. Now I will get plop into my chair and knit as I watch the Olympics closing ceremony.

What you did was way better than mopping around about something you can't do anything about. It all sounded fun!...especially day 4!
