Spring Break, Really It Is!

Above is a picture of my poor lilac bushes in my backyard this morning. Below is a picture of my crocuses that were actually blooming earlier in the week. I thought I would be getting my flower bed prettied up during spring break! I think not.

I started off the break by being sick. I came down with a nasty cold virus but I can't complain. I have had a fairly healthy winter and I work at a school! When a kindergartner coughed on me I jerked back and scared the poor kid!
Over the past week I have been working on this quilt top. My friend Cheryl passed away in December and last Friday at my guild National Quilting Day activities her sister Carol showed up and asked me to go to her storage to get "some fabric". She had donated "a truckload" to the Lewiston guild of which Cheryl had been a member and had three boxes left and a bunch of books and magazines. This quilt had six blocks pieced and most of the rest of the pieces cut. I got the urge to go ahead and finish up the quilt and will offer it back to the family. Cheryl didn't finish very many larger projects.

What a lovely thing to do for a friend. Hope your snow disappears soon - it is almost April, for goodness sake.

Yikes, that' a lot of snow! Is that common for your area in March?
Wonderful thing to do for your friends family. It will be a memorable keepsake for them. You rock!

That top turned out gorgeous! I'm so glad you finished it for her family. I'm sure she's smiling down on you! Hey, at least you have snow and not this wind! I think I'd take the snow any day but then I'm sure I'd complain about how it killed my rose bushes if you sent it my way! ROFL!
I need to get that one King sized colorwash top done. It's about 70% finished. Maybe I should get motivated with the spring thing and do it. Hmmm...see what you did to me? j/k! Love ya!

I adore that quilt, and do not adore all that snow, which btw, was falling here today. Yikes!
Happy Spring too you!
