Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

In these days of renewal, I wish you Peace...

For us, life is the same...
I'm wishing seeing green grass an early arrival, but it is delayed!
Still sooo much snow.  We have had a few days of above freezing temps, the snow is melting, but it always seems soooo sloooow for me!
On my sewing front, I've made 2 sets of binding, I finished the row of apples for Lori's Row A Long
I've finished another block for my Just Takes 2 quilt.
I also started to square up the large, star block, but I guess I warped the star points, my sewing lines to join the quarters of the large block were not straight.  I tried to live with it, but I can't.  I'm going to take it apart again, resize all the blades and then put it back together.  The blades will be smaller , but I can just add to the block size.  I hope I don't have to start over again....

Enjoy your day with your family and friends and share lots of hugs!
Take care, Leslie

BOM Rehab!

Hi There!
Well, we ducked a Big Storm!
We were to get 15-20 cm snow, but will end up with less than 10 cm, or 5 inches by midnight tonight, I think.  Our weather is scheduled to warm up to above 0 celcius or 32 degrees F. 
Yes, Spring is on the Way!  Being a Spring, Summer girl, I can't wait.
So, thanks to the benefits of vacation, I finished all my applique blocks for my Just Takes 2 quilt.
What do you think!

So, just to make the filler blocks and about 5-6 big pieced blocks.  Then, I can put it together!
A few more weeks I think.

I'm linking up with BOM Rehab, see you there!

Take care, Leslie

International Quilting Day! Sulky BOM My Sewing Room!

Hi there!
I missed you while we were away on our wonderful vacation!  You have seen lots of pictures of Palm Springs and Palm Desert California, I am sure!
Just think, 2 weeks of turquoise skies, every day, lots of yellow sunshine, lots of green grass, Palm Trees, bushes, flowers ......   ah, bliss ...
We took a quick trip over the mountains to Oceanside California, near San Diego to see wonderful family wintering there and each way.... is Temecula!  I was able to go to the Temecula Quilt store too, and yes, spent some money!

Anyway, I am Celebrating! 
Today is International Quilting Day! 
and it is an official weekend as well. 
Yesterday, I accidently found all the links to My Sewing Room BOM by Sulky!  Michelle at Quilting Tutorials blog had posted the first block!  Then, I realized in the coding for the pdf, there was a number...
