Finished Scrappy Trip

I started this little scrappy number at the retreat last month and finally finished the binding this past weekend. It's made using Bonnie Hunter's ( free pattern you can find on her blog.  You've seen a million of these in blog land and since my strip boxes were so full I figured I should make one.
Even used some scrappy fabrics for the border - a purple multi-colored fish fabric and a dark blue multi-colored fish fabric.  (Didn't have enough of both to do all 4 sides.)

Had a great visit with my sisters, brother and parents this weekend.  My sisters came in to spend time with my parents so I spent the weekend there too.  Saturday night we had dinner with just the original '6' - no spouses or kids.  It was a nice dinner.

I also got to spend a couple hours with my step-daughter, her husband, my grandson and granddaughter.  We met in Manteca at the Bass Pro Shop - it's a great place to keep a 2 year old very happy.  He and I had a ball.  He was very good at telling Oma where to go.
Needless to say - I was very sore the next day from carrying him up and down the stairs.

My sisters didn't believe me when I told them that the stray cats and stray chickens/roosters eat together in our citrus grove.  Here's proof.  We usually have more cats but by the time I grabbed my phone to take pictures Miss Kitty and Fluffy had gone on their merry way.  Pumpkin and this new black cat were there though.  And all 4 chickens/roosters were there - 1 rooster, 2 hens and one little one hiding there and blending in.  They all roam the neighborhood together.  It's a gang!

Thanks for looking.

I love scrappy quilts and yours is super. What a great family weekend!
Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the cat food, of course!
I really love that trip around the world. It's on my to-do list.
