This Month...

I know there was an April here somewhere. It flew by. (Yes, I know, it's not over yet, but it might as well be)

Spring sprung. With a vengeance. I hit the ground running April Fool's Day and I haven't stopped yet. I got some crocheting done, a lot of it and very little sewing. The crocheting was for my daughter who will be here Friday morning for a (too) short visit. Some years ago she had mentioned that I should make her a mermaid blanket, not knowing how long they actually take to make. I kind of laughed it off, but then when I was thinking about what to do for her birthday, it occurred to me she wanted the blanket, so made it. Of course, her birthday was two months ago...so I made it for when she comes to visit for my birthday. Plus, I made her a really cute pillow case too.

I also got the block for April done for the Sea, Sun, Sand mystery block a month. It turned out fairly okay. I am no expert at applique. I need lots of practice. Plus the Heat n Bond doesn't want to work too well for me. I have no clue what I am doing wrong there. But I am getting practice in.

I will catch up with my RSC 2017 next month after my daughter has left for home. I know I will need to keep myself really busy, because after she leaves this place is going to be awfully quiet and empty.

So here is what I did do...the colors are all pretty funky...inside pictures on a dark and gloomy day.

Stay tuned...next month is going to be full of stuff!
