Why is it so hard to think of a title?

Good Saturday morning everyone. The sun is shining here and it is suppose to be in the 70's today, but with the good you also get the bad. Its suppose to be in the 40's by Monday with maybe some snow. Not that it will stick around long but not a good thing for my flowers that are blooming.

In my last post I said I would be updating my blog the next day and we are now 6 days later so here we go:
We had a lovely day on Easter and most of us eat our meal out on the deck ( there were about 30 people and not everyone could fix around the dinning room table)  and enjoy the sunshine. After the kitchen was cleaned up we went on our wagon ride
some of the kids
with a few adults mixed in

I can't remember what day it was but I got my self in the mood for some quilting and this is where I left off last night. As you can see I have the strips done and now I have to assemble the borders.
This picture will give you an idea of what it will look like. It's not anything fancy but I will enjoy covering up with it in the winter as I watch tv and stitch.

Next up I have another finish from the Crazy January Challenge 2012
This is my 3rd CJC finish this year.
Count your Blessings
Shakespeare's Peddler
Started -Jan. 3, 2012
Finished - April 12, 2012

I used 40 ct French Vanilla R&R Reproductions
and the GAST colors that were called for in the pattern.
I enlarged the picture so you could see the buttons that I added to the picture. I was cleaning and moving thing around and came across an old tin that belonged to my great aunt. It stuff full of these old buttons still on the cards they were sold on. These are just a few of them.

Well its noon here and I have not got much accomplished here yet, so I better get my butt moving so I can sit and stitch later.
enjoy your weekend!
Happy Stitching

Your quilt looks great and your stitch finish reminded me - I stitched that and never finished it. Now where is it???
