100 Already?

This is my 100th post.  Can you believe that?  I certainly can't.  What on earth have I been writing about anyway?  Too much randomness I am sure.  I just want to say thanks to everyone who actually bothers to read all of this crap I write!
This week has been busy.  My husband works out of town and is usually gone for weeks or sometimes (gulp!) months at a time.  He's been home this week, which means that I don't get as much done as I would like.  He doesn't see "watching me sew" as spending quality time together.  Totally short-sighted if you ask me!
I did, however, get a quilt cut out.  And all of the blocks sewn together.  Here are my scraps (so far):

I am going to have to find something to make with all of these leftover triangles!  I also have been stippling quilts for a few people (got to make those payments on my machine).  This king-size quilt ended up having over 350,000 stitches of quilting when I was finished:

I wish my points looked that good on the pieced quilt tops that I make!  Maybe I should pin a lot bit more.  
But I have been spending time with my family too.  I swear!  Lorelei's school had a carnival the other night.  I was expecting cardboard booths with a few toss-across and/or fishing games.  This is what we found at the park when we arrived:

There was also a rock-climbing wall but I didn't get a picture of it.  The kids enjoyed playing and getting treats.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway I am hosting here.  You could win a photo session and full image cd from Alicia Jones Photography.

Congrats on 100 !! The school kind of by my house (about 5 minutes south) had a carnival - I think last Friday... I am thinking you just might live pretty darn close to me! Or at least the pics make it look like it could be out by me with the mountains that close!
