Adventures with kids

Yup, I got SUPER lucky and extended my weekend, till today!  🙂  It was fabulous, let me tell you.  I was able to have a lovely Easter Dinner with family, get housework done, and yesterday I was able to take my kids hiking.   It was a much needed break for me.  (and my kids)

The kids loved going “hiking in the woods”.   My youngest (18 months) thought he was in heaven….running down the trails.  Before we got out of the park they asked when we could go again!

Charm pinwheels

As you all know, quilting is never far from our minds…..so I have to show you more things I’ve been working on.

I have always been in love with pinwheels.  The basic, classic pinwheels.  I  have tried to con my Mom into making me a quilt with pinwheels for years, and I just wouldn’t settle on a color selection.  Anyway, I love Sandy Klop and her amazing fabric designing skills and had to use her Wee Play line.  I. LOVE. IT.    It makes me so happy…..like, I almost want to sing out loud happy.  🙂  Anyway, here is a little peak at my blocks laid out that I am hoping to get together pretty soon!  Does anyone else’ kids think it is the best thing ever, to run over `your laid out blocks!?!??!  I caught my little guy in action.  Several times!!  (that is why I put it away to be finished later!! ) HAhahah!

Well, I hope you all are having a wonderful week…..Seriously.  It’s Wednesday, almost to the weekend again!!  Woo hoo!  Go out and enjoy your day!  (or stay in and sew.  you’ll enjoy that too!! )  Oh, and BTW….ALL those kids aren’t mine!  (I went with my sister…..so we doubled our numbers!)  It pretty much looked like we ran a day care!  🙂

See ya,

This week we have been quilting like crazy! One of my favorites was this darling little baby quilt made by Carol, one of the ladies in our beginning quilt class! It turned out so cute! She used a Wee Play Charm Pack and coordinating fat quarters. Isn’t it darling? p2150210p2150209She backed it with Peas and Carrots, and asked us to machine quilt it with the Counting Sheep pattern by Quiltin’ Bill. It looks amazing! She can make me a quilt anytime!
