Really Random Thursday 5.29.14

 My first few randoms are from Instagram, where, incidentally, I just changed my handle to rachel_thelifeofriley.

 Starting to put hexies together.
 Put the borders on the Downton Abbey quilt last night.  Next up is to prepare the backing.  Hopefully to baste next week, maybe.  Lots of prepping and packing to do next week, too.  I have named the quilt, though.  "Old Lady Grantham"
We had a couple of stormy days with some serious downpours!
 Tickety-Tock.  We'll see if I can pull off a random next Thursday before we leave.
 At my Dad's last weekend, we were talking baseball, so my Dad went out and made WD a bat.  Just like that.  How cool! (He's a wood turner, pens, bowls, and more)
 So I've got the older two busy during nap time.  E is painting M's wall letters and WD is painting his new bat.
Linking with Cindy and the rest of the Randomeers.

How special to have a wooden bat made by grandpa. I've never heard of a homemade bat.

That is a lot of hexies! Your quilt is beautiful. You are a busy mommy.

Love your count-down calendar! And what a special bat. My father used to do a lot of woodworking, furniture, etc., now he does mostly pen/pencil sets (all of us have them, even the little grandchildren, which will be a treasure when he is no longer around) and really great seam rippers.
