What's up?

A lot!

My week and weekend ran away from me!  A night out with Mr. Boss to see my most favorite country singer, Reba at the Houston Rodeo Friday was the start of the crazy! 

  It is also Spring Break around here and I think I might go mad with not just my own boys being cooped in from the rain Friday through Monday.  But the 10 boys that were in, around, and about my house yesterday. 
 I love boys...but sometimes I need a little break from the testosterone...countdown to my next scrapbook retreat is now 16 days. 

Finished projects

Moved to my website

It was an adventure.  I was nervous HERE.  I thought I was going to shake my monitor to death HERE.  And it finally all worked out HERE.  Things seem to be redirecting from blogspot, my followers say they are still here, but my traffic dropped drastically. 
"They" say it recovers if I keep on blogging.  Time will tell!

In Progress

Hartley's Quilt: I finally decided on the final design and fabric placements.  I haven't taken pictures of her cut diamonds yet.  

I really want to get her finished by the end of the week!

Butterfly Kisses
: Two blankets down, two to go!!!

Cream Quilt:  I need some advice!  If you remember...the fabric has a lot of texture.

I am stuck on my quilting plan from here.  Do I stitch in the ditch? I don't want to take away from the natural texture!  Any suggestions?

I DO know that I think I am going to give it a scalloped border. It will be my first foray into

Non-quilting projects:  One involving ceiling tiles...stay tuned.

And Bunny has his very own tutorial for a duct tape project! 

This is his "you promised to not take my picture for this" look.  The battery to the camera died at the end of his session yesterday. He has a few more pictures I need to take, apparently.  He already has "mapped" out his steps!
I love this kid!

No Progress
Button's Twin Quilt
Auction Quilt (I did find a nice rubber bin for all the t-shirts so I wasn't tripping over them in my studio)
 Girl Quilt (I DID decide who is getting it!)
Christmas quilt (mocking me on the rod in my studio)
Thank You Quilt

Linking up...go visit!!!!

For now?
We are off to the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show today again!
  Carnival rides, bull-riding, and the Band Perry await us!  
And Button has a new shirt!  Of course, I am going to share it later this week!

  5. Have a great time on your retreat! I don't know how you do it with a house full of boys. All the more power to you for being able to get any project done.
