Oh what glorious weather we've had here in South Texas for the last week. I almost hate to even talk about it knowing that so many of you are still being hit hard with winter storms. I would dearly LOVE to have snow, but not what y'all are being blasted with. The temperatures have been in the 60's-70's during the day and cool at night, but along with these wonderful temperatures come the influx of pollen. OH.MY.GOSH. The pollen is KILLER! It wouldn't be so bad if we'd get a bit of rain. I'm praying that some will come this next week. That's what Mr. Weatherman is saying, anyway. It will definitely help those of us with allergies.
We finally have everything put back together from the water leak, so I've been doing a bit of crafting. I have two small quilt tops ready to be quilted and bound. These were so fun and the colors so bright and cheerful. As most of you know, I love anything red, anything with polka dots and love cherries, too, so the fabrics in these were right up my alley. :)

These are two of my MOST favorite books to use for quilting with charm packs. They are so fun!

I haven't decided how I will finish it off, but I'm thinking a little pillow for my basket. :)
The two WIPS that I've been rotating are "Houses of Hawk Run Hollow" and "And They Sinned". I started HoHRH back in 2004. Pitiful. I'm going to finish it this year if it kills me. I really enjoy stitching on it and don't understand why I put it down to begin with. Here is where I am as of today:

I haven't stitched on ATS in a couple of weeks, but plan to pick it up next week. I've just been having too much fun with HoHRH. :)
I've still been working on my stash sale list. I have a TON of 28 count fabric that I'm wanting to sell. If there is anything in particular that you might be looking for, email me and I'll see if I have it before adding it to the list. I plan to try to have the list posted by the end of next week.
I would like to take a second to tell each of you how much you mean to me. It amazes me how "small" our world becomes when we are able to be in contact with people from all over via the net. So many of you I would never have had the pleasure to know had it not been for this little, ole blog. Thank all of you for your sweet comments and emails. I appreciate each of them so much! I just love all of my "blogging friends". :)
Happy Easter to each and every one of you. I hope your day is blessed.
