Guilty as charged...

I's been forever since I last posted. Shame on me! Let's see if I can catch up a bit today.

I finished Hailey's quilt top. I know the picture isn't very clear, but I probably won't bother taking another one until the entire thing is done. I have it basted and partially quilted. I had planned on quilting around the potion blocks this morning but I have been blessed by several orders the last couple of weeks and today had two to fill. Perhaps I'll find the time and energy after church tonight.

I shamefully didn't do the BOM at the guild this month. I did manage to make a block for a member's quilt that we are all working on. I've been nominated to be in charge of the BOM next year. Not sure how I feel about that. I was thinking of taking a year off. At least this position will be a bit more creative than the other two I've held.

We had a wonderful Spring Break with the kids. A few activities and outings...some great family time. We even took Flat Stanley along...those of you that have kids and/or read the book probably know what I'm talking about. :)

I have also worked on a few other quilty things: a baby quilt, the leaders and enders coffee quilt, etc. Each of them have their own sad stories that I will tell sometime when I've gotten over them. :/. In the meantime, I've developed a probably unhealthy addiction to a FB game called PackRat. Hubby used to tease me until he decided to give it a he's hooked too. LOL!

I hope everyone has been having a wonderfully blessed month!

Potions and Snow

What a glorious weekend!

I finished up two more blocks for Hailey's Quilt... Potion blocks. Now, I need to spend more time today cutting fabric and if time allows working on two more star blocks.

The weather this weekend was incredible. We received some heavenly snow fall both Saturday and Sunday. I wish it snowed more often like that in this area...maybe three or four times a year.
