Spring Break!

This year, Spring Break for the bears was April 15-19. Unfortunately, my husband and I spent most of the week being sick. Ugh. But, the boys and I did get out a little bit:

And this is one of the good pics! Ha! We had a fun time at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival one day this week.

Truly, the tulip fields are just spectacular!

Yesterday and today, I finally felt good enough to do a little bit of crafting. So I spent some time catching up on my Spring Mystery Quilt clues.

Spring Mystery, clues 1 and 2 complete

Here are Clues 1 and 2 completed. I ended up adding the bright green in when I realized that Clue 2 would have resulted in a big block o' white for me in my initial fabric selections. But this works out on another level as well, since I didn't actually have enough white to cut those center squares. So, I'm making it work. Woo!

I also managed to bind about 2/3 of one side of the wedding quilt. Not much, but it is at least a start! Hopefully, I'll start getting some energy back so I can stay up past 8 and actually sit and work on it soon.


  1. glad to read you are feeling better and you have your mojo back. Looks like you are working on some great quilts. I just love the baby one as I have said before. Purples and yellow are such a great combination.
    I would love to see that many tulips at once. The boys sure are growing.

  2. The tulips are spectacular!!! I hope you and your DH are both feeling much better now. Looking forward to seeing the wedding quilt finished. It will be well worth the time you have taken to make it.
