Something to look forward to...

You may have noticed (how could you not) that I haven't blogged much lately. Things are crazy busy at work which doesn't leave too much time for fun.  (It isn't all bad, really) In fact...don't tell my boss...but I am writing this post from the office.  :-)

When things are this busy, I try to focus on the end point and find something to look forward to.  This year my plan may backfire because I am so excited about what comes next that I am having trouble concentrating.  :(

What things you ask...Well!

Hubby and I have discussed a trip to Florida to see someone very dear to us.  It is a window of opportunity that will close soon so we will likely make this happen.  We have had an offer to use a beach house which we used last year and really, really enjoyed ourselves.  We are hopeful that we can start work on our mountain cabin this spring and hopefully start spending more time in the mountains.  I will have three BOM blocks completed near the end of April and ready to set in quilt tops which is very exciting....

AND the cherry on top...I am participating in another blog hop!!

It's for the Birds Blog Hop courtesy of Madame Samm with Mary, from I Piece 2-Mary, as our cheerleader.  The details are here.  

So only about another two and a half weeks TILL work slows down and THEN I hope I can...

Quilt Much!

Quick Post

Quick post...Things are very busy at work these days which leaves little time for the more enjoyable side of life...but I managed to squeeze out these two blocks for the Studio Stitch BOM.  I incorrectly cut the strips for the X on the left of the first was supposed to be the coral colored fabric.  This was a make it work moment for sure.  

The wind was blowing when Hubby and I attempted to take the pictures making it almost impossible to get a great photo.  I wanted to take the pictures in front of some of our daffodils but the wind was having none of that.

Good news...Hubby and I closed on some land in the mountains.  We are very excited(!) and hope to start work on a small cabin some day.  I will keep you updated...if our plans and ideas come to pass, I think that it is something worthy of sharing. 

Hopefully, next Sunday, I can spend some more time in the Quilt Room but things at work may continue to interrupt that fun.  Oh well, the busy time should be over in a month or so and then there will be other yard work, spring cleaning, etc. that will compete with Quilting...but hopefully to a lesser degree.

Till then...
~~Quilt Much!
