Sneak Peek

This winter has been a real whopper here at our house for sickness among the kids. If it's not one, it's the other, and once one gets over one thing, the other gets it and the first one gets something else! I should have gotten ibuprofen and that yummy pink stuff on tap this year. I'm sure it would have been much less expensive and would surely have saved me lots of trips to the pharmacy! Ugh is all I have to say about it. Come on spring!

But in between picking them up from school early and running them to the doctor for throat cultures and ear checks, I have kept my hands pretty busy. You already saw the pink cancer walk bags that were a custom order for one of my daughter's friends who will be walking in May. And you also saw the major clean out and move in of Grace's new bedroom which involved some serious physical labor and lots of trash bags!

The bright blocks baby blanket was another project delivered recently, and another crochet project is in the works which I'll show you very soon.

But today I have a little sneak peek of a quilting project I am working on which needs to be finished by the first week in May. You might recognize some of the symbols and graphics that will be featured in this project...

So far, I've gotten all the pieces cut out and laid out and I'm ready to start ironing and working on the machine appliqué. When I get a little further into this project, I'll share another update! In the meantime, I'll keep working on this during the day while the kids are in school, and my crochet project in the evenings after they go to bed, for as long as I can stay awake! For right now though, I'm thinking a little nap would be just the thing on a cold rainy Wednesday.

Happy Stitching!
