It's been Ages!! as the saying goes

My appologies to those that have been keeping a tab on me it has been busy, busy, busy. Spring brings on a nuance of chores and meetings and outside duties that takes me away from my passion.. quilting. This is not to say that I haven't been sewing!! I have made my BOM for Carol Doaks Group

this is April's block I took from some FQ's rather than my scrap barrel.. sometimes it is more work to dig through that thing!!

We also had a challenge of Viewers Choice for Carol's site the theme was spring..she has this cutest little 2"block that I could see as a brides bouquet so when I made it that was the intent we had to use batiks

If you win the viewers Choice you will win 15 of the blocks that were entered so I am keeping my fingers crossed... wish me luck will ya!!

Then to top it all off (whew as I am writing this I am thinking i have been busy)we had to make batik blocks to swap that had to have spring green in it and had to have the theme of spring.. all these had to be of Carol's patterns. (which makes it really easy since she practical does everyting to make it easy)
So I made 12 blocks so that I can get 12 back... in the long run when I get my 12 blocks and then if I win the viewers choice I will have 25 blocks to make my own Batik quilt sampler with Carol's blocks.. what a deal!! Do you think I am excited I sure am!!

So this is what is happening so far with Carol Doak's stuff.. now I have a few of the UFO's that I have to catch up on.. Country Sunshine... but I will. There is other quilty stuff I have been doing but I am sure you are ready to start your day.
