June 17, 2007

Here are a few more quilts for Mexico. These are just cheater panels but I know the babies won't care. I am now ready to pack up a box and send the quilts onto Mexico. I am able to mail them to the headquarters in Southern CA and they have a truck that goes down weekly. Much less expensive for me that way. I would never be able to ship international. I think I will be trying to fit 30 quilts into the box. Don't know if the box I have is big enough but I am going to vacuum out the air in a bag and hope the box does not explode while in transit. The next few weeks are going to be crazy at work so I have not been working very hard this weekend. I did manage to machine quilt three more tops for my Ukraine project. Have not completed the bindings yet.

Summer is here!

Summer vacation is finally here! The kids last day of school was last thursday. My 16yr got his first job and started last Friday. The called him on Thursday evening! So now I have had to scramble to make arrangements for my youngest for child care while I am at work. This week he will be going to summer school in the morning and then go to one of my friends house to be babysat by her daughter. We will be figuring this out week by week as we progress! My job is pretty hectic right now as we are in transition being bought out by another bank. Alot of training is going on and being a small branch that means I am working extra hours. The timing is not the greatest but not much I can do about it. I am hoping to get another position in the office if things go as planned. I have not quilted all this week but do have a quilt sandwiched and ready to go. I am working on the Ukraine quilts right now. Then I think I will be working on some more baby quilts for Mexico to take with me in October when I go out there for a few days. I am getting excited about going but do not want to wish summer gone just yet!
