Almost finished!

We had a fun, busy, crazy Memorial Day weekend! Our daughter had 4 days off so she and the grandkids and the granddog came over for a visit. It is always interesting when there is a houseful here!

Saturday Larry and I worked on the garden shed getting the roof trim finished so the roofers can come and get the roof on (that will be happening on Friday). We had lots of help from our grandson. He especially liked filling Papa's water cup using the dispensers in the freezer door! He also ran loads of wood scraps to the burn pile in his big Tonka dump truck. His little sister was busy also but seems to be going through a growth spurt so she climbed on the couch and took a nap! While we kept the kids busy their mom spent some time in the sewing room making a couple of wall hangings for two fellow grad students. 

On Sunday Papa got the last of the siding on the shed and I quilted the two wall hangings with the little girl's help. Her mom and brother did a little shopping and went to visit my parent's graves, planting some flowers there. We went to my niece, Katie's new house for dinner so Chelsea and the kids could see it and the kids got to spend the night - her first overnight guests.

Chelsea left Monday morning to pick up the kids and head home. Larry and I spent the day installing the garage door, 'man' door and window in the shed. The window is an old one that got replaced in the garage and it does open. We have it covered with piece of plywood right now until the roof is done - it would be a shame if it got broken!
I am excited about getting things installed inside. There will be a counter under the window for potting, etc.
The yellow stripes on the door won't stay, they are just a protective film for shipping.
I have gotten two of the graduation quilts quilted and hope to do the third this afternoon. If I am lucky I will also get the bindings on. 

Tomorrow is Relay for Life so I will be heading to the local high school track for 24 hours or so. A great event but exhausting!
