Happy April Fools Day

Mother Nature played a trick on us.  It is sunny and warm and it's not snowing.  You may not think that that is a trick but with the weather the way it's been it feels like a trick.

Oh well....On to April's "To Do" List.

1.  Finish the Shoo Fly Quilt Top and if possible get it quilted this month.

2.  Make 8 more Jacobs Ladder blocks.  Then I can finish the quilt in May.

3.  Work on the Medallion Quilt QAL that Lori and Randy hosted last year.  I need to work on the final applique border.

4.  Finish up my Doll Quilt for the Swap Lori hosted.

2014 BOM'S

1.  Sugar Shack  (This one is done photo to follow)
2.  Globetrotting
3.  Hip Chicks
4.  Country Threads (This one is done photo to follow)
5.  Quilt Doodles

I would also like to make a couple more of the APQ QAL

Here is my Sugar Shack April Block.

Here is my Country Threads April Blocks.

And here is a picture of a couple of fabric bags that I made.  Freda got me interested in them and I have plans to make a few more.

The one with the sewing items is going to someone I am making a quilt for  and the other one is going to be mine.  I plan on making a bunch for Christmas presents.

Well thanks for stopping by.  I need to get some things made as I'm going to go up north Thursday to visit my son.  It's been a while.

Enjoy the Spring weather.

Hugs, Cathy

Our April Fool's joke was waking up to another blanket of snow. Mostly melted now, but it is cold and rainy. I'd rather have your weather.
Good looking blocks!
Freda's bags have tempted me, too, but you have obviously acted upon it, whereas I am still just thinking how nice it would be to make some. : )
