You've read it before......

I know, I know, you've read it before but I truly am sorry about my inconsistent blogging.  No real excuses, I just don't blog if I don't think I have something that someone would be interested in reading.  I have joined the "Leisurely Wife QAL" (see button to the right) and I did make up these blocks:

I suppose I should give the name as titled in the book, but there have been some posts regarding copyright complaint from the author, so I will just say that I did start at the beginning of the book and will work my way through.  I did purchase the Companion CD from EQ so I could paper piece the more 'difficult' blocks.  I believe in making my life easier whenever possible :-)
I have also been getting some quilting done for Quilters for Comfort.  I had (still have) quite a stack to get done so I am doing simple freemotion meander on most of them.  My previous post shows the Smilebox presentation for the quilt done for a QFC member undergoing chemo and radiation for brain cancer.
My granddaughter, Kari, is going to her first prom tonight.  I will post pictures later.  I am so excited for her.  She has been planning for her prom since the beginning of the school year.  We went fabric shopping for her dress and she chose a beautiful light blue satin tapestry for the bodice and a lightly sparkled light blue satin for the skirt - it turned out quite nice if I do say so myself :-)  This afternoon she is trusting this grandma to do her hair (we did do a 'dry run').  I will so look forward to hearing all about her evening tomorrow.  She is such a special young lady.
I will head out for Disney with my son and his family on the 18th - always so much fun.  Each year (though I hate to admit it), I find it a little more effort to keep up with the long strides of my son (6'1") and his wife (5'11").  The kids so far - we're good (well unless they want to run!!!)
I do appreciate all who are still stopping by in hopes (or wonder) that I may actually post something...
Until next time, I hope spring is springing wherever you live - we had a very mild winter, but I still hate anything below 75 degrees!
