First Flimsy of the Summer

Haven't accomplished much, but a little is better than nothing.  
We had company over the 4th of July weekend and 
my granddaughter has been with us the last 8 days.
While my daughter was here, we recycled some weathered wood into patriotic decor for the front porch. The cabin is the perfect place to display prim projects.

In the moments I had to myself,
I managed to turn a WIP into a flimsy.
Little Letters,
a free pattern from Temecula Quilt Co.  
I made two sets of letters at the same time.
This one is for my grandson and the other one will be for my granddaughter. The backing fabric is one I picked up 2 years ago.  I started the letters almost 1 year ago...embarrassing that it took this long to get them all done. You can see the backing fabric here.  

I continue to make pennies for my Farm Girl Finery.
 I am not very good at staying on task when the task is very repetitive and involves a lot of flying geese!  

We are headed to Mesa Verde next week for some camping and exploring.
Geez, this summer is flying by!
It will be a miracle if I get a third of what I brought with me done!

Great patriotic creation!
I really like your alphabet quilt. The splashes of brighter blue really bring it to life.
I haven't been to Mesa Verde since I was a teenager, but I still remember loving the cliff dwellings. Fascinating!

Your wood flag is very creative. I often wished I knew how to work with wood and some of the power tools. Too late in life to earn it now.

Liking the wood flag!!

I made the little letters quilt and gifted it to a very dear friend in blog land. I wished would have made TWO letters at a time too! Clever!!

Your first priority is to have a holiday. The rest falls into place.
Your new decoration looks perfect for your porch.

I just finished my Little Letter U's today, so you should not be embarrassed! I started a year ago, too, and am also making two at a time. I've done lots of projects in between, but still...a year?!?!? Lol. I have a grand -nephew (which makes me sound old...I'm not THAT old!) arriving in October, so I hope to have one finished up for an early Sept. baby shower. Your flimsy and your flag are both fantastic!!
