Design Wall & Family

This has been a mostApril Boot productive week. 

I got my April Boot Bash block done: 

These have been fun and rather easy, a nice break from the Heart’s Desire blocks which are quite a challenge (here).  These I have made great progress on (no picture Sick smile) and hope to have Block 2 and possibly all three Block 3s done and on the wall by Wednesday.

Jan - April Boots

Here are the four done blocks, don’t you think they will make a fun quilt?  I am getting some ideas of settings but nothing for sure: I do have 8 more months to get creative.


April Henrietta

And I completed the April block for Henrietta Whiskers.



Jan-April Henrietta

And here are the Jan – April blocks all together.  The blocks are made in different sizes so it will be interesting to see how they all play together.

And Sunday was a very busy family day.  Our DGS and DGDIL came for a visit.Michelle & Chris 4-2011

They are on a “road trip” all the way from CO.  He just recently got out of the Air Force and she is entering the Air Force next month.  It was so much fun being with them and when she is in tech school they will be really close to us so we should get to really know them, for a while.

As they were arriving I got a call from my mother but had to call her back when our company left.  We talked for 30 – 45 min and almost as soon as I got off the phone with her our DD called.  I felt very popular today.

Now I’m going to get another cup of coffee and head on over to Judy’s blog to see what other’s are up to.

The boots are quite wonderful. I also love the Henrietta blocks, especially the colors.

Wow, neat boots! And I love your Acorn lane!

Gari our boot blocks are a hoot. I love them. And, Henrietta is coming along well. I probably should be typing in green for jealous! People call you and come to visit -- wonderful. Let's just say my kids are notorious for going a long time between calls!
