My parents are moving again---hopefully buying a house in Cave Creek (they have a counteroffer to the counteroffer in right now) so tomorrow we are heading up to help them pack again. Are you counting how often them move? I went to nineteen schools before graduating high school and then since I was married to a military man I moved tons after that too...the longest I have ever lived anywhere is about five years...this house is about to break the record on the last house I lived in on Lake Wissota which was about five years. Anyway, since we have been here (five years in June) my parents have moved six times--or is this move seven? My siblings and I are SO over it but my mom loves to decorate and I swear she thinks it is easier to move than to Spring clean--especially when we help her!
Oh, lost 1.6 pounds this week--so I am just over 20. Kathy lost 6.2! Her total is around 19...whoot whoot! Still getting in my exercise daily!

Stopped in at 35th Ave. to pick up our blocks on Saturday and someone shared their flimsy of another quilt...too cute in purple!
Another pretty quilt I would not attempt! And another cool machine!
Loved both of these quilt. Hexies and bubble gum pink, what is not to love!

I still have lots of star blocks to make and then I need to get My blue/PURPLE Heaven together and quilted and bound. I was really enjoying this one but have been stalled out, so since it is purple month at the RSC I suspect I may get these blocks done and get to putting them together too!
After looking at many of the linked up posts, I have come to the conclusion that I need to add more to this post so I am adding in an eye spy or two. I have a bin with lots of cut fabrics to make up this quilt again...
So here is to my first FINISH ALONG goals!

Sunday I whipped up the 35th Ave. BOM for April. It was the same block but different colors that we have for March and it went together pretty well.
I also added satin to my brother's old baby blanket for his son Ben. I did not do a great job on it, but as long as it is soft, he will be happy. I hope they don't ask me to do the other blanket, because I didn't care for it at all! I tried two different methods neither with much visual luck, lol, but it is on the blanket and it is done!

I have yet to make my March block for the Classic Meets Modern QAL, but today I got March's done. First I played and played with the fabrics to try to figure out which way I liked the block best. I do have a few turned blocks in some of them, but I didn't notice at the time! Which one is your favorite?
Sew at Home Mummy! Here is what I have so far :)
