Is It Really???

Can it really be April?? I always look forward to April. I love Spring, and April means six family birthdays and our big Easter celebration. It also means our Master Gaardener Plant Sale, which is Saturday. Preparation for it will take up most of my free time this week.

I have accomplished some bits and pieces of projects. I was recently told I was a process person when it comes to my quilting and hooking projects. After some contemplation, I must totally concur.

I am slowly moving forward with Quilty Folk. The latest row was a gazillion little flying geese blocks.
 
And here is where they go on the quilt...
 
Hopefully I will stitch them on straighter than I pinned them to the design wall..LOL.

Next are last week's Wild and Goosey blocks..
 

Not sure where Temecula is going with their First Friday blocks, but there is definitely a pattern here!
 
February
 
March
 
All three months.

And these are my first two blocks from Norma Whaley's Sweet and Simple stitch along on FB.
 
 
I am pretty far behind, but not stressing. I actually have several blocks prepped. They are wool and cotton machine appliqu├ęd onto cotton.

Just so that you can see how Mattie has grown...
 
And sweet Daisy...
 
Excuse the eye goop...the pollen is affecting her allergies, despite the Zyrtec.

Rob gave us quite a scare this week and ended up in the hospital since Friday. The cause of his problems is probably due to his new treatment drug as well as a superficial wound infection at his surgical site. A visit from little Maya cheered him up today.
 
She looks pretty happy, too!!
