On a mission!


HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

It's amazing what a constant stream of chocolate going in to my mouth can help me achieve LOL

 April blocks are all done...and the April sashing is already attached to the main part of the quilt :) I haven't attached the April blocks yet, because my sewing machine is very busy sewing other things!

Here is a pic that one of my kids captured yesterday...

...bed hair, still in my PJs, sewing machine buzzing along madly. No laughing now :)

All housework and personal care has been abandoned...LOL..I'm on a sewing mission!

What are you up to this Easter weekend? Hopefully lots of SKoW stitching...by the looks of the sidebar, we have some catching up to do!

GO TO IT!

TTFN
