Long time no see...busy time of year, huh?
Of course, is there ever NOT a busy time of year?

Here is what I am working on right now...literally, right now.

My amazing, beautiful niece (and future baby sitter) is turning 12 in May and I am making her this lap quilt.  She is a voracious reader (love that about her!!) so we got her some books for her birthday, and I thought I would make this quilt....

In fact, there are lots of things I want to make in May.  The AIDS raffle quilt goes on the block May 7th...I'm currently biting my nails STILL waiting to get it back from the quilter...I called last week to remind them of my deadline...they promised.
But the list goes on.....pillow (like this) and owl coin purse for my nephew's birthday
pillows for my mom for Mothers day
table runner for my sister that I promised to her LAST YEAR
and one more frog basket for my daughters teacher....

We have been rained on more days than I care to remember the kids and I have grabbed every dry minute we can get outside...although we don't stay dry....


  1. oh be still my heart... i have pictures of my kids in rain puddles. We used to walk and walk and walk and I would let them jump in every puddle. Oh......i want to go back.

  2. He doesn't walk on water - he levitates!

  3. love that quilt!
    orange and pink... one of my favourite combo's

  4. Awwww, the kids look so cute in the puddle! Looks like you have a great list -- good luck with it and have fun. I love your niece's quilt -- one-patches are among my favorites. Also, I've been meaning to tell you thanks for the tip about the shop sale -- I doubt I'll make it out there -- must save my space for market impulse purchases LOL!

  5. What a great spring-colored quilt! Love that pillow link too, can't wait to see what yours looks like! That in-action picture of your kids jumping is great! =)

  6. Yummy colors. I really want rainbow sherbet right now!!! Every time seems like a busy time!! I wish I had rain. Doesn't that sound silly?I think it has been months since we have had any sort of puddles. Monsoon season will be here soon enough in the summer... I
