An update on the Country Charmer QAL - I only managed to get three more blocks done during the month of March. But this is a work at your own pace, no pressure QAL, so I am not stressing - I want to enjoy the process with this. Pattern designer, Lynn of Sewn' Wild Oaks has a lovely set of photos of how she quilted her finished top. I will be linking up with Lesley The Cuddle Quilter - you should visit some of the others progress.
It was a bit of a stressful day - after a lovely Easter . We started out with sunshine and 50ish weather and then within an hour it dropped almost 30 degrees, high winds, rain, snow, hail. I really thought we were headed for a tornado - so I powered down the computer and TV and put the Emergency radio on. I did some sewing though - just to keep the jitters down. 66 log cabin blocks speed-chained thru that machine. I think the faster the wind blew, the faster I sewed! Yes, the furries were just as scared (or more) as I was!! We really did not find Mother Natures April Fools Day a big joke.

HELP A QUILTER OUT
The lovely Michelle of Quilts from my Crayon Box has a request out for a special project - a 100 Wishes Quilt for a special young boy - please go read her blog post and help out.
I even spent time writing my April 'to-do' list and hope to have a majority done by the end of this week - a lot has to be done early. And filling in the calendar with notes for QAL,RAL, SWAP so I am on track.
The next big SewWeQuilt Hop is the April Showers - see button - I am scheduled for the 9th.
Kaaren of the Painted Quilt - see button - has a new Row Along. I did her Raggedy Friends QAL and just love that quilt, so yes, I am doing this one!
