End of Spring Break!

Hope you all had a good weekend! I spent a good deal of time enjoying the sun while I raked the front lawn... got a good upper body workout! Still, hitting the gym this morning felt like a rude awakening!

I also spent a good deal of time this weekend on my mystery project. When our local quilt guild hosted 4th and 6th designs last month, I took notes and decided that their techniques would be new territory in which to start a project that was all ready forming in my brain, so this past weekend, I began to work ....

and this is where I landed for now....

This giveaway prize from LizzieB Cre8ive arrived in the mail on Saturday....
some goodies I received in the mail
I thought I was only getting a pattern, so was pleasantly surprised to have fabric in there too!

Last night, I got together with my friendship group, Seams Like Sunday, which comprises of Blogless Deb and Blogless Laura, my Lancaster road trip companions, along with Janey and Amy.
For our birthday month, we make our choice of theme/color of fabric and April happens to be the month of my birth.....

You will never guess what I chose?!!!!!

While we all chatted and showed and telled, I made two more scrappy log cabins....

putting the total up to 81 blocks!!

Now, spring break is over and the kids and I are back to routine (no more sleeping in), books, homework, healthy lunches, etc.

Less time at the machine but will still manage a seam here and there! Have a good week!
