Block of the Month Progress

I'm trying to get caught up on all the beautiful block of the month projects that are available in Blogland... and in the past few days, I caught up with two of them.

First, Verandah Views. I have January, February and March's blocks complete. Today I printed April's block and have it ready to stitch this weekend, hopefully. I'm not doing the sashing strips on these until I have a better idea of how the whole project is going to look. The pictures are not good because it was very cloudy and gray outside today, and if I waited for more sunshine, who knows how long it would be before I got another chance to post!

Next up, is Christmas Wish. Here are the first three blocks. When I shop hopped two weekends ago in Vermont I bought the fabrics for the strips. I'm very pleased with these fabrics, and they aren't normally 'my' colors. I'm looking forward to the next block sometime next week.

I'm also working on my Spring Swap package. I'll be mailing it on Friday, but I have some last minute tasks to complete before then. Maybe I'll post some sneak peeks over the weekend, but I can't show the whole thing until my partner receives her package. And I'm mailing it to a country that I've never mailed to before.

The next two weeks are going to be crazy busy here in the Quilting in Connecticut family. I start training for my job on Monday and Thing One, Thing Two and DH (aka The Big Thing) have dance recital the weekend of the 18th, so we have extra practices and five dress rehearsals between now and then. Oh, and Easter too. I hope I get some time to sew in there somewhere or I might go a little bit nuts. But I promise that once the recital is over, I will be here more often.
