something else finished

don't faint, but I finally sat down and did my blocks for project improv! With the Fab challenge mailed off and the reveal enjoyed-it was on to the next thing. These blocks are being mailed tomorrow and that completes everything I "owed" others in the quilting projects department.
I am almost half done with the hand stitching of the kingsize sleeve on my show quilt. I am turning it in Wednesday night and feel confident I won't be stitching Wednesday morning - another few nights of tv watching and sewing should do it.

I have quilts to put labels on and take photos of and then ship off to headquarters for Wraptheminlove. As these quilts are an always on-going commitment I do not treat them as deadline driven. It is always great to send them on their way-but there is absolutely zero stress as they hang around waiting.

I will be returning to my word house project- the last class of Tonya's that has been sidelined far too long. Also, I have nothing to hand quilt and may have to whip up another free pieced scrappy little something until the house top is a top.

The last g
uild quilt show I am involved with on a working level is this coming Saturday the 18th.

Once all the paperwork is wrapped up and handed over to both guilds I belong to - I am done with my guild positions and can really relax.

The rest of the year my focus will be on personal plans.

Spring is slowly but steadily making itself visible-so gardening will be taking some of my time-I so love planting future color to enjoy. I am going to do some playing with decorative rock again and expand on some garden design work started a year ago. That is the outside stuff.

The inside stuff will be to finish clearing the fabric room-it's at the half way mark right now. Then, I can start looking seriously for the bed I have in mind to put in there. My sister arrives in 41 days-and that makes a natural deadline for having that room ready. Plus, Alice can't spend the night either until I find that bed-another good motivation. She has outgrown the porta crib and it's time for a real bed for that 2.8 year old!

Speaking of Alice, she and her daddy came over for an indoor Easter Egg hunt. Oh the fun we all had "helping" her. I think we had to re-hide about 4 or 5 times it was so delightful. I will leave you will a photo(s) of her joy.

I really like your Improv blocks. I like the way you limited the number of fabrics. Great job. It sounds like you are very busy this spring. I need to get out and work in my yard if it would stop raining.

Cher, Alice is looking so grown up lately to me---losing the baby pudge maybe? What a joy she is for you and her family!

Cool improv blocks---you have the knack for the liberated quilt form. I know you enjoy playing that way!

WTG on the house project too. Those 40 some days probably can't get there fast enough for you on one level but you need some time to get things organized too---plus shop for a bed both sis and Alice can use on overnights. I get a crack at it too before you know it, LOL.

Sounds like you've got lots planned and in-the-works! That's what Spring is all about, isn't it!

That Alice. What a beauty! Is that Zoe's bed she's in?! How cute!

I really like your improv blocks. That red and aqua combo is growing on me.
Your GD is a cutie - you must have had a fun egg hunt! She looks like she's having fun.
I'm glad you're getting some spring. Ours is still pretty slow. But the trees are starting to bloom, so there's hope!

I love the red and turquoise. The improve blocks are fantastic.

Thank you for visiting my B&W photo blog. I hope you come back soon.
