Happy Easter!

It's been more than a couple of weeks now since I've sat down and written anything, and once again I'm a day late and a dollar short ...  The sun is shining here and I did finish one pretty big project for me--getting everyone matching on Easter.  It's not all perfection, but everything turned out pretty dang cute, if I do say so myself.  (I'll work on pics ...)

Once again I'm re-learning my schedule.  I was blessed to fall into a part-time job have been finding my footing there.  Although the job will mostly be on evenings and weekends, the training started during the days and then slowly moved closer to my intended schedule for the beginning of April.  Bear with me--I'm still doing as much sewing and crocheting as possible--just a bit more limited for a little while.

I finished about 1/2 the quilting for Luke's quilt, but ran into an issue with my machine, so I'm having to re-do a good portion.  I've re-worked my quilting scheme, but it'll still take a little more time.  I missed the silent auction, so I'm really bummed.  I'll hang on to it for just the right occasion.
A quick re-cap of the Karrs over the last few weeks ...
The first day of spring was accompanied by snow in the beautiful Willamette Valley.  Not our usual wet dusting that disappears by noon ... I mean almost 7 inches with tiny, dry flakes still coming down for a couple of days.  It was the most snow I've seen since moving to Oregon eleven years ago.  We've also had some crazy hail storms, too. (Notice the soft green *new* leaves poking out to say, HI--I'M HERE!)
We made some really cute Easter eggs for decoration a la Pinterest and  It was messy and the string liked to tangle, but they turned out really cute!
I made Samantha a scripture cover from my tutorial ( since her English class is studying The Bible (KJV) as literature.  She picked out batiks--not my personal style, but it turned out cute and she loves it :)


  1. I'm impressed they are studying the KJV as literature - very progressive. The scripture cover looks great. I wish I had time to sew. Keep inspiring those of us in the blog world. I'll have to post a photo on my blog of the quilt I'm making for one of my granddaughters when I finish it.

  2. As always, thanks for all your positive support. I want to see pics of Stephanie's babies, too :)


Thank you for stopping by! I love to hear from you. Come back soon!
