Sheri's quilt


I finished the top! Hurray for me! It didn't take a year to do! I don't usually work with pastels (not my cup of tea) but Sheri told me she liked pastels. You do what you can to please people. I really prefer working with batiks. I guess batiks do come in pastels but this struck my fancy in many ways. First, it came in a kit (takes all the hard work of matching colors and cutting the right amount out of the equation.) Second, it was big blocks which makes it even easier. It is pretty cute all in all I have to say.

We had a busy day today. Tiff and Chloe came over to play and a few neighborhood kids ended up here too! We managed to squeeze a trip to the grocery store in before we took Simon to Tae Kwon Do. Tomorrow, if Misty is still keeping Oliver hostage from the rest of us, Marlena and Misty are going to join us for some Easter egg dyeing. It should be messy and fun. I can't believe Easter is this Sunday. The bunny will be good to the kids this year I just know it!

I have this dreaded count down going on now. Only one more week until surgery...

It turned out very nice. I really like it. It is not nearly as pastel as I was thinking it would be.

What's the next project?

When you and Misty hadn't blogged for a couple of days, I hoped it meant baby time! I guess not... Beautiful quilt - but you always do good work!
