Some Ocean Waves progress and a new flimsy

I'm finally back into the swing of things after spending 3-1/2 weeks away from home visiting kids and grandkids, not to mention dogs and goats.

These two cousins turned 15 in June and July and they're both getting their driving permits ~ yike!

Celia's high school has a big rock out in front that gets painted pretty often ~ her mom and sister painted it on her birthday ~ how cool is that?

How sweet are these two little goats!

This one thought Celia was pretty sweet, too  :)

I did have a chance to do a little sewing while I was up there, but it feels really good to be back in my own space.  I've made some progress on my daughter's Ocean Waves quilt.  I managed to get all 432 half square triangles done ~ they're not all trimmed yet, but they're sewn at least!

Right now, I have two of the big 24-inch blocks put together.  I've been taking my time pinning all the points and so far so good!!  Here's the first block (before the 4 pieces were sewn together):

and here's the second (sewn together):

We decided to make all the X's with the same fabric in each ~ I love it so far!

I managed to finish the top of the 25-patch comfy quilt that I'm working on ~ this one should be an easy one to finish!  

Linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday!
