Happy Mother's Day

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day. My kids treated me royally; 
I am blessed!

It's been hard finding time to blog, well, no, it's been hard having any time at all to sew and therefore, have something to blog about! A few projects will be done soon - so glad to have lots of work, but looking forward to a bit more time for fun!

Have a great week.

That seems to be what I have been doing with my neglected blog, and it is what I wish I were doing today. Here is the view outside my window a 
few moments ago:

That doesn't really look like the 5th of May out there, does it? Such is life when you live in our neck of the woods; we always say if you don't like the weather, just wait fifteen minutes.

Yesterday was the last day of my master's course; I'm always so happy to get another one done. I have a single, one-credit course left in the fall and I defend in July and then...I will be finished! Woo hoo! As much as I enjoy learning, this last, intensive (short) course kept me out of the sewing room, so I am anxious to get back working on a few things. Amanda Jean posted the other day about making a list of smaller projects to finish for the Small Projects Quilt-Along. So, in no particular order (and with no delusions that I can finish them all), here is my list:

  1. Placemats (from the Sew, Mama, Sew Sew-Along)
  2. Zipper bags for my daughters and daughter-in-law
  3. Table runner for my dining room table
  4. Pillowcase dress (for Little Dresses for Africa project)
  5. Pillow using HST's leftover from my Swoon quilt top
One of these projects might just be perfect for a snowy afternoon in May!

See you soon.
