Happy St Patrick's Day!

What a wonderful day! I know it is spring when my students beg to have class outside.

Be sure to come in on Saturday we are having a great sale for National Quilt Day! We have rearranged things at the store. Come in and tell us what you think. Looking forward to Thimbleberries Club too.

I finished a Thimbleberries Block this week. The block is purple with the background--need to read my lists more often. They help me stay focused (a difficult task this time of year).

I have so many quilts I want to make. In fact today I found a pattern in a magazine for a baby quilt. It was so cute. I tore it out and put in in a page protector. My next list should be all the quilts I have planned. KG has an inventory. I love the new fabric that comes in and I have all these ideas and then reality hits me....when? and what? There is a new line in from Red Rooster...perfect for kids quilt or a spring table runner. The half yard cuts of flowers are beautiful. I would really like to make something with them. A great buy too.

See you all soon. Shout out to Dana & Amber... you make 3rd block fun.

What a great day! The Advanced Beginner Class is going very well. Their blocks are coming out great and they all look so different and unique. I can't wait to see them all done.

Bernie and I had a great week out west with our daughters and their families. It is always fun to see the grandchildren. That all sounds so formal. I just love hugging and holding the little ones and getting to know the older ones. I was checking out my list and realized that I had accomplished something on it!

I finished the nine-patch quilt. The next question is what am I going to do with it? I am sure that someone will fall in love with it and then I will have a great gift. :)

adding to the list:

5. Update the blog more often

6. Make my Civil War Quilt blocks

7. Make my Thimbleberries Club blocks

Those three are going to be on going..."should they be in another list?", I ask myself. Let me know what you think. I put all my pictures on my computer--so you get a special surprise!

There I am with my favorite daughter named Jeanne and my favorite daughter named Jennifer!

That means I can check the first thing off my list too. Isn't life grand!
