I love getting paid for doing things that I love to do!
Then I went to quilt guild tonight and received more money! We had a fun Design Challenge issued a few months ago and I made my blue and gray quilt for the challenge. The challenge was to make a two block quilt with two quilt blocks you hadn't ever seen together. I have been wanting to make a blue and gray civil war quilt, so I did. I like how it turned out. I won 2nd place and a little cash as well!
I also had to turn in my round robin assignment for the month. I was a little nervous about working on this block because it is so very out of my comfort zone with its modern fabric prints, but I think all is well. I added the white border, the orange and white churn dash border, and the little embroidery. I also received my next round robin assignment for this month . . . hope it turns out!
Not too much has happened around here that is blog worthy, but we have been very busy! Emmitt is loving the nice weather - it is hard to keep him in the house anymore!
Kelsey had her 4th grade program this week. 4th grade is all about Utah History and she has really enjoyed learning all about it. Her program was fun and Emmitt kept yelling "Where is my Telsey?" when she was not completely visible!
The kids colored eggs last night and they are excited for the weekend; so am I! We are going to my parents for the weekend and should have a wonderful time - if the weather cooperates. It is snowing again right now, but should be in the 70s by Sunday! Have a wonderful Easter folks!
