Spring Break Recap and FSNI

Spring break is just a fading memory by this time.  It was a great week that ended with a mini shop-hop with two quilting friends.  We traveled to Generations in Pottstown and  Ladyfingers in Oley, PA. I tried to keep my purchases to a minimum, and only buy coordinates for fabrics already in my stash, but somehow the makings of a whole new quilt ended up in my bag.  One of the things I was looking for was fabric to bind this wall hanging since I didn't like what came in the kit.  The hanging above was done from a pattern by Patchability and kitted by my LQS.  This was something I bought last year and I had actually finished the background.  Doing the fusible applique and machine stitching only took another hour or so and I had a new Easter decoration.   I think I finished the binding on Saturday, so I did get to hang it for this holiday!

During the break and continuing after, we have been dealing with a hospitalization, rehab, and long-term care decisions for my mother-in-law.  I'm getting a real education on Medicare and insurance plans.  I also joined a gym since my personal exercise program wasn't getting results, and, of course, that has taken some of my time.  Still, some stitching has occurred and I'll show it to you in the next post.  In the meantime, tonight is the Friday Night Sew-in for April.  I've signed up.  Have you?


  1. Oh, cute Easter finish! Glad you got to do a bit of a shop hop with friends. I hope your MIL is recovering. Sending good thoughts.

  2. Sweet Easter finish! Can't wait to see the fabrics for your new quilt.
    Have fun at the sew-in and I'm sending good thoughts for your MIL.

  3. Good luck making all those decisions for you MIL. I've been doing all that with my own parents.

  4. The shop hop sounds fun. Your Easter finish is cute.

  5. Isn't it funny how things can just end up in our bags!
