A quick hello

Happy 4th of July!
Just wanted to drop by and say a quick hello… 
I made these adorable little Independence Day themed shorts for my DS yesterday morning before heading out to my MIL’s for a BBQ.
They fit him great and even had two little side pockets! 
My husband loves for him to wear plain white tees so I had to make an outfit around the simple t-shirt. It’s summer time and we live in Florida so, I think he was dressed appropriately. :o)

In other news… an update on my first queen sized quilt…. last I checked in with you all I was here.  Now, I am very happy to say I am finished with the quilt top!! Although I complained and swore that this would be my first and last queen sized quilt, I am feeling pretty proud and considering tackling another one this size for our bed! Not anytime soon, though.  I have to wait for the trauma of piecing 400+ half square triangle blocks to fade a little!
 
Isn’t it fabulous?!  
It’s an original design I created called:
Midnight Diamantes (diamonds in Spanish)
 
  I am so proud of myself it’s crazy!! 
 Here is a more closeup shot of the piecing!  Wow! 
Can you believe I have only been quilting for 3 years?
 Sorry for the excessive use of exclamation points, but I am sooooooo happy!!Now, I’m off to quilt it.. I’m doing good time for my July 18th deadline.  

I’ll check back in with you soon.

    The quilt and shorts are awesome, but those chubby little feet and legs are unbelievably cute.
