Where does the time go?

I go from 3 days into vacation to 3 days LEFT of vacation.  I'm not complaining.  The end of the vacation was pretty good.  Things are settling down but I still have a lot of work to do.

I did finish the test pattern (mailed it off and it was received) so then I turned my eye to something else.  This WAS a finished project that I got tired of the center so I ripped it out.  Yes, I actually did rip out some of it which left a little hole in the top so now I need to do something to put in the center.  It is all quilted (Free Motion Quilted) but not a very good job since I'm not good at FMQ.  I was thinking of just doing various sized circles and put in the middle.  I found these fabrics to see how they would work.  What do you think?  The yellow fabric is the same fabric that I used on the border.  It's more goldish (the right side shows a more true color of it).  What do you think?

That's the most I've gotten to thinking of it since I got distracted.  What distracted me?  Charlie Brown.  Here's Charlie Brown.  I went to visit him and his parents but somehow I don't think he 
is appreciating the outdoors as much as I was.

I took pity on him and let him back inside but not right away.  I was too busy enjoying this view.

I'll go back to watching the view outside for a bit.  It's too nice of a day to sit inside (and I don't have any more applique prepared to stitch).  :)

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend everybody.
