I certainly didn't mean to go away for so long.
I had been on a trip to visit my mother and my family.
It got very busy.
I don't know if I have shared this
but my mom has Alzheimer's.
It is a horrible disease.
My poor stepfather has his hands full...
so I have been going down to
help and give him a break.
I certainly thought I was going
to have some computer time while I
was there... but it was just way too busy.
I even took a mini project to make some yoyo's in red white and blue and
sew them into a flag... but I didn't even take a stitch!

When I got back home I spent the entire day in my sewing room!
A good place to decompress!
Not that I got a whole lot done...
but I did manage to work on Star Blossoms a little bit.
I got the center stars made before I left.
I made a mistake, which set me back but I ordered some
more Madhuri fabric and continued to work on the
outside of the block with what I did have.
I got this far before I started to feel guilty about
a messy house... so this is where I left off.
Of course today will be busy with focus on Easter.
We will have a Easter egg hunt and dinner this afternoon with
This morning I started ironing the table cloth and napkins!
(not real well... just enough to get by)!
I still need to announce the winners of the giveaway!
I am really sorry to not have done this sooner!!!
I wrote a name list, a very messy list for each giveaway.
I had 90 people who prefered giveaway #1
and 51 people who were entered into giveaway #2.
People who didn't care which one or wanted me to choose for them
got randomly entered into a list.
The winner for the envelope of assorted patterns is:
Sherrill at Quilting in My Sleep
The winner of giveaway #2, the McKenna Ryan BOM kit is:
Sherry from Blessings From Our Nest
