Welcome to April. Can you believe 1/4 of the year has gone by? Unbelievable. When I turned my working calendar over here is what greeted me. It made me smile.

I absolutely love the sentiment. Maybe that will be my new theme, motto, or saying. Do you like it as much as I do? I am glad I get to look at it for a month. I also love the flowers and the color. For April Fools day we had snow. It melted by the end of the day but it was a joke on us all.

Spring is just about here. My pansies are looking good and my daffodils are just about to bloom. The tulips have green leaves up but no buds yet. I love the anticipation this time of the year brings.

This past week I managed to get the 48 stars pieced that are in the border and Sat. I put it up on the design board and start sewing the blocks together. The angle of this picture is wonky because there is about three feet between the board and my sewing machine. I store my board until I need it then it come out into the only place available in my sewing room. This also gives me incentive to get the top put together fast.

I hope you have a meaningful Easter and a great week of sewing up your stash.


  1. Your snail's trail and stars top is wonderful! Good going on that! And I love your calendar page, although the older I get, the fewer excellents parts remain! Happy Easter.

  2. You are still ahead of the game! Amazing quilt top -- perfect combination of the pattern and colors.

  3. Beautiful top - and 4.5 yards busted! I'd call that a great week!

  4. Beautiful quilt. I now have that book. I ordered it after seeing your Grandmother's diamond wedding ring.

  5. Love your sentiment too! I may adopt that same mantra. Love your SITP quilt with the purples asnd greens. Absolutely stunning. Jane

  6. I love your quilt, the colours and the pattern. I've always wanted to make a snail's trail and your's is beautiful.
