Spring Break - off and running

                                          

Monday morning and we were off and running . . .

First up was another trip to mom's. She needed help with an errand and I volunteered us. We had another nice visit, although short. I'm freeing up some of my time to be able to spend more time with her and make myself more available to her. 

We stopped at the library on the way home and picked up some movies. Newton played a video game and I worked on my blog. :)

So I felt like I had a fairly productive week, even though I didn't get all my goals met.



This is a design from Jenny of Elefantz. It was a free design a few years ago and I'm finally getting it done. It's one I considered a UFO . . . another one off the list.


If I were to do it again, in this layout, I would/should have enlarged the design. The white background is white on white with words (hope, He is risen, etc.) and images (crosses). Very fitting.


I found this print and just knew what project it would compliment.


I attached tabs so that it would hang from my quilt rack and chose the rather modern brown/turquoise print for sashing and binding. I wasn't sure, but I really like the contrast. 



I managed to finish the first block of a spring/Easter wall hanging. Another UFO - there are plenty more where these came from.
This took a couple of weeks of evening stitching to accomplish. I like the added dimension of the weaving through the back stitches just to give it something else.



I LOVE the pinks !! Pink gingham ears and flannel nose just add to the cute factor. 


 

 

 

Spring has sprung in our neighborhood. These are from Sunday evening after raining.  Daffodils are blooming, trees across the street are budding and the dragon's tongue is back for another year. That plant must be 10 years old by now !!! And the grass is a beautiful shade of green and looking pretty healthy. 

Not sure I'll get out in the yard to do much work this week, but I do try to do something each time I go out. That will be how I spend my spring and summer. No point in wasting those trips when there is so much to get done.

Time to hit the road again and see what my pups got into and get my chores done. Have a wonderful afternoon.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity and productivity.

The Jenny wallhanging looks lovely. I, too, like the contrast of the fabrics. It all goes together so nicely. The weaving no the back stitch of the rabbit just makes him perfect. It looks more like fuzzy fur that way. So cute! I hope you have a great week. Always good to help a mother. =) Teach your son how that's done. LOL
