My crafting and family life journal

April updates

Growing season has finally arrived and life has gotten very busy again.  We took a long weekend at the end of April to drive down to PA to visit the in-laws and an ill family member, and I have spent the better part of  the daylight hours for the past two weeks preparing vegetable and herb gardens and cleaning up winter damage. During the long drive to and from PA (6-7 hours each way), and the couple of hours each night carved out each evening as a reward for the yard work  I made some nice progress on three of the five projects started this year.

Blue ice needlepoint pillow top. It has been several years since I worked on a needlepoint project. It is so nice to pick the craft up again...

English paper piecing quilt top that I started several months ago. It is comprised of three different 1 inch units. The hand stiched top in this picture contains about 600 units. The finished piece will have about 1,400 units.

I hope to have another project at the end of the month along with a few garden pictures.

Enjoy the wonderful spring weather.
