Catching Up

We are still on "Winter Break" It seems more like Spring Break. We have had beautiful weather, highs in the 70's. We did have a "spring like" rain come through this morning. Sunny skies now though. We have our Spring Break in will probably snow! lol
Jill's PIG question for this week is " What was your last finish? and. What UFO are you working on right now?" Hmmmm...well, I havent done a single thing on my PIG/UFO list! I started a baby quilt for my niece-in-law. This will be the first "great grand baby" on the Dillard side. They are having a sweet girl in July. I am using Bliss (LOVE) and Jodi's Pinwheel pattern from Moda Bake Shop. I have made this quilt before, it is a great pattern and perfect for a baby gift!

Andy and his brother took Cade and our nephew on a Guy's Only Day. I was happy to be left at home! They went to Dahlonega Ga, and panned for gold. Here they are at a still!

and Cade panning for gold. Why is it so hard for a 10 year old boy to smile at a camera??? or atleast try to look like you are having fun?? They all had fun and Andy said they laughed and laughed at the boys! Cade told me that they told alot of jokes but he couldnt tell them to me. Hope he doesnt repeat them at school!

I hope that everyone is having a great week. I dread school starting back:( On a good note, though, I am going to go to a new bible study at our church. It starts on tuesday morning. This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. Tuesdays are my days at the library..I will have to swap..Please pray that I am strong enough to tell the school "no" and go to the bible study. If I want to keep "Balance" in my life I have to learn to say "no" to the school. Now, that Sherry is back, I should be able to do this!

Your pinwheels are so cute! Looks very girly. Looks like the guys had a great time. Makes it nice that you can have some "me time"

I love pinwheels and the fabrics are wonderful.

Also enjoyed seeing pictures of the boys and their expedition.

I LOVE your pinwheels. I am planning on making a baby quilt this week but I am not sure that I could do that. LOVE seeing the pictures of the boys. Isn't it nice to have a "me" day? And I know that they had to have so much fun.

Hi Libby
I have never made pinwheels and agree they look sooo good in a quilt. Your fabric is beautiful and it makes it so bright and happy. Love it.

It was nice for you to have some time for yourself and do the things you feel like doing but don't always have time. I sure know how that is...*s*..

Great pictures of the guys..*s*...wonder what jokes they DID hear...

I hope you had the courage to tell the school what you needed to. You are right that you sometimes have to do those kinds of things. You can't do everything at once and there shouldn't be anything wrong with saying "no" in a situation such as this for sure.

have a wonderful week
