Everything but the kitchen sink

Kim Brackett's book, "Scrap-Basket Surprises" has been one of my favorite scrappy quilt books.  When I saw this one, appropriately named "Kitchen Sink",  I knew I could utilize lots of scraps using the little pieces of fabric that were in my basket.  This was started several months ago, and this afternoon seemed like a good time to get the borders on.  Now it is ready to quilt...yea!

It's Labor Day weekend...where has the summer gone?  I have to admit that I am ready for the cooler weather.  Last night we went to the Kansas City Irish was so stinkin' hot, very uncomfortable!  Then I went to the Sana-Cali-Gon festival this morning...lots of great craft tents, but once again it was way too hot.  After the 4th tent, I decided that it was not much fun and came home to my nice cool sewing room. 

Last weekend, the boys came over for a sleep-over.  Have to share these pictures of Jack...Gramma and Grandpa have to spoil them with donuts and milk for breakfast, right?

And then we can send them home in a sugar coma......

I wanted to share this link with you, it seems like I know too many women fighting the battle with breast cancer.   This is so beautiful.....
