Still around....

All I can say is "please stop the world spinning I am having a hard time keeping up." Spring is usually a busy time of the year around our house and this year is no different. We have been busy with indoor soccer games and practices for daughter son and D#2, researching & buying a used car for the teens use, university applications for my son, dance competition practices for both girls, bottle drive fund raiser, speed stacking practices for daughter #2, driver's ed classes for daughter #1, working a few days here and there not to mention the regular activities of running a house. I am pooped and the 'fun' just starting.
In between all this I have been trying to do a little bit of sewing too: check it out
This mini wall hanging went to my swap buddy in the Yukon, Vivian. Winter hasn't left them yet so she will be able use it for a while still.

One of these rag quilts will be going to my daughter's jazz teacher some time in April. I had to make both, since she doesn't know what she is having. I just wanted to be prepared.

I have also been working on the my Spring Swap hosted by Cory and Helen in The Netherlands. Can't post about it just yet as my swap parnter might be reading!!! I only have the binding left to sew on.
I also made another rag quilt on behalf of my sister for her niece. She bought some of the flannel when she was here in November. However, she decided she would never get around to it and sent it back for me to do. I made a little doll quilt to match. Of course Lily always has to get in on the actionNow I am trying to finish up my niece's string quilt. I have been putting off quilting it as I just didn't know what to do. Finally I decided to use a wavy line horizontally across the string blocks. Now I have to decide what to do on the borders.

In the up coming weeks I have 12 scarves to make for D#2 ballet competition. On Friday I will be going to Edmonton (3 hrs north) for the U18 boys provincial soccer championships! This is the first time my son has made it on a team that went this far. I am sure it will be an exciting weekend. I am just glad he can do some of the driving too!

Checkout Lisa Marie made with the fat quarters she won on my giveaway.
I hope everyone has an exciting week. I will be work all week, which is unusual for me.
happy sewing!
