Done With A Busy Month

It is already the middle of April!  I can't belief how fast the days seem to fly.  I guess that's what happen when you've been real busy, as it was the case with me recently.  Things seem to be settling down some now.  I say this with a sigh of relief!

The month of March was very busy for me.  The beginning was filled with preparing for my younger son's Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet and making decorations for it.  By mid month, banquet was over and then my older son needed to complete a Science project.

I don't know about you and your teenage son(s).  I love my son to pieces but he can be such a procrastinator.  He had to come up with an idea and have it approved by the Science teacher by the first of the month.  Once his idea was approved, we briefly discussed the overall look of his display board and... that was it!

Of course, it's basketball themed!

He put it off and put it off...and to sum it all up, I made him stay up late, the night before it was due, finishing up his Science project.

Now that things seem to be going at a slower pace, I have been able to work on some projects.  Although I have several blocks from the Just Takes Two BOM to catch up on, I HAD to start on the feathered star that was included in one of the units.

And I even finished piecing the quilt-top for my Runaway Quilt (from the Elm Creek Quilt book series).  It finished a little bigger that I realized, but I don't find that a problem.

So with a quilt-top done, I have an urge to pull out another UFO to work on - one that I haven't seen for a while.  We shall see...

  1. What a gorgeous quilt, oh my. I have two of the ECQ books but have not made any so far. Your red & white block is perfect. What precise work you do.
