BUT....our girls played hard and won the tournament! Yep, they played in HOT and MUGGY weather on Friday and Saturday to make it to the championship game and then defeated our neighboring town in mudbath of a game on Sunday. The State Tournament is next week and our little girls were so excited to get that trophy and get to go. There was quite a bit of squealing.
|I love these 3! Oren has been the best mascot this summer, attending every practice and game without complaint and staying out of the way. So proud of these 3!|
I finished up my last two Summer Sampler blocks (from last summer...) and decided on a layout.
Here is block 1:
|I promise that middle section is not at all bumpy and uneven like in this photo...even I would rip that out and try again! ;)|
And here is the proposed layout:
I am going to add a thin sashing in a bright red solid I think. That's what Chris suggested and I think he's right. I've got 4 extra blocks, but they are the blocks with a solid background and I pulled them for the back. One set came out WAY SMALLER than the rest of the blocks and one set used the red from the Make Life Layer Cake that I started out with and I didn't want the reds to compete.
So, since I actually have some red solid in my stash, I'm ready to get started...right after I take these kiddos for a rainy swim...they've gotta get some outside time or I think there might be some yelling going on around here pretty quick. Wish me luck with Debby...I thank God for the rain we were in desperate need of, but I am ready for her to move on!
