One of my favorite places that we visited in Boston was the Public Garden. As we wandered around, we came across this amazing tulip bed. Isn't this beautiful color? I think this would be fun to make in fabric - if I knew how to get started.

Happy Thursday! It feels like forever since I've been to this space, and that's because we've been gone on a trip to Boston and Cape Cod for the last eight days. It was a wonderful trip, with time spent in the city with some very special people, and also time out on the Cape for just Mike and me.
We enjoyed riding the subway, the "T," and exploring the city. The T has some great helpers! We just looked for their red shirts.

I'm skipping the to-do list this week, and doing an update instead because this is happening:

Earlier this week, I finished up the Contentment pillow (design by Jenny of Elefantz) that was a birthday gift for my teaching partner and friend.

Spring has finally arrived in No. Colorado! It took its time, but was worth the wait!

Good morning! I'm joining in with Linda and friends at Texas Quilt Gal for the To-Do Tuesday link-up, sharing what I've been working on and my new list for this coming week.
- Finish the birthday gift/pillow cover for my friend. Almost done! Top is quilted, and pieces for the backing are made. I just need to sew them together and I'll do that this afternoon.
- Work on PopStar, part 2.
- Get started on Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks for May. The colors of the month are sage and forest green, which I'm interpreting as anything not bright or lime green. Here's my fabric pull so far:

I shared these photos earlier in the month in other posts, but decided it was easier to make a new post for Sandra's DrEAMi link-up. Each month or holiday season this year, I've been looking for a cute idea to make my mom a festive mug rug.
In April I just *had to* sew a carrot!

I have a finish to share today! I've been hand quilting this little quilt for the last couple weeks, and it is now done.

aka my April Table Scraps project!
Hunting around for *who knows what?* earlier in the month, I came across this watermelon print that is leftover from a tote bag I made years ago. Combined with some strips of a text fabric (a wide backing that I've used in multiple projects!) and a fat quarter of a typewriter print, I thought this could turn into something fun.

It's the last week of April - always amazing how the months fly by, even if some of the days have been slow. We're starting to get some nicer, and less windy, weather here, finally, and lots more trees are leafing out. I managed to successfully grow a few pretty tulips (after the daffodils disappeared and a bunch of tulips froze)!
