Monday Makers!#41

Hi all!
Another Monday another Monday Makers!
How was your week/end? We had a lovely week and a lovely weekend.
I warn you I will spam this area with non-quilt photos today :-)
Last Thursday was my son's 3rd birthday. We had a small celebration at the childcare centre with his friends and carers. Everybody was so happy and excited, especially me and my husband!
He looks so excited!
Then, on Saturday we had a little party at home with my in-laws and Kuzey's best friend and his parents. We had a yummy BBQ; adults had some quality time spent altogether and the boys played in the yard. Even though it was a coolish day, everybody enjoyed it a lot and we had such a wonderful day.
The ice cream cake was so yummm!
Now to Monday Makers!
I have made some good progress on Kuzey's quilt. 
I finished piecing my strips- only the last one needs three more pieces to be added. Then I will need to add lots of negative space to turn these strips into a quilt. Tonight I am hoping to be able give the quilt a rough look that I will like and later turn into a final lay out. 
This will be the largest quilt I will ever make. One strip set is 83 inches long and I am planning to make the width 60 inches. 
Now it is your turn. Show me what you finished last week and what you are starting today!
1.Your project can be anything you start on that Monday as long as it makes you move and be active and creative: a new quilt, a knitting project, scrap booking, cross-stitching, baking-we don't mind yummy recipes!, a gardening project, painting your house!, tidying up the pantry!...This is your Monday and you are the maker of the day!
