So here are all the purple blocks so far for April. I added in one of my churn dashes and the kitty block too so my collection of purples is growing!

Kathy and I decided to try making ourselves an ipod case tonight too. I found one I really liked on etsy, but I didn't want to spend 23 dollars on it when I knew I could make one. So I searched the web and found a cool blog at Dog Named Banjo with a free tutorial. She had lots of great pictures so even I could follow along. Her ipod is a titch smaller than mine so I should have made it a little bigger, but didn't realize til it was too late. I may make another later on bigger, but for now I am happy to have a case for free!

I worked on My Blue (Purple) Heaven. I made enough star blocks to add two more rows. I also cut and sewed more parts for the last twelve star blocks I need to make. I am SO happy that I have gotten back to this one.
I see Angela has posted a few more purple blocks so I plan to hit those in the morning before getting right back to this!

Here Kitty Kitty Block pattern is over at VT Quilter if you need to make a purple (or any other color) 6.5 inch unfinished block. April is almost over and I only have a few purple blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge done! I made a few more purple leaders/enders lozenges too.
I will be sewing all day tomorrow, but at a charity sewing event...AZ Blankets for Kids with a few friends of mine. Should be a really fun day! This afternoon I am planning to finally plant my herb garden (seeds are soaking now!) and sew whatever catches my fancy! Have a great weekend!Linking up with Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge from last week!

Sew at Home Mummy is doing a beautify your blog series and look what I was able to make here at work between calls! My very first picture with print on it! LOL, cannot wait to get home and actually follow her directions and make myself a new header and such. So happy that some folks are good at things like this and teach the rest of us!
In other news, I did not sew diddly squitsky last weekend (not sure if you noticed the lack of posting!) but I did read a book (The Red Queen) cover to cover and got in plenty of exercise! I did do some handstitching on my second elephant but that was about all that was crafty that happened. I am hoping to be more in the mood this weekend!

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!
