Happy Belated Easter and ...

what a crazy month it has been:)

Since I last wrote to you, I have:
-taught another class
-helped write the standards for a local Saturday Market
-prepared my Paducah entry for shipping-- "Groovin' Grove" was juried in:)
-worked up my business taxes so my husband could do our family taxes-yuck
-finished all the minutes for 2 boards I sit on and submitted my resignation for both due to the impending move
-mapped out entries for local guild show and started actually making 3 of them--they are entered but not started. How's that for confidence? :)
-continued to work on a new design in applique along with a fusible version
-reviewed a pattern for another designer
-showed our house 3 times even though we are renting
-had my pup in for a follow up visit because her stitches didn't look well and we were kenneling her for a week--she was fine:)
-prepared moving lists
-prepared lists for houses to look at
-went house hunting in FL and bought a house
-started one of the miniatures for my quilt show
-start preparing for Easter company which will consist of both my daughters and one boyfriend. It will also be my daughters' birthdays so we celebrated that too.
-had both the sewing machine and computer take a vacation-Yikes. Both were fine too:)
-started cleaning out studio and while doing so found this bunny below.....

This design was suppose to be a wall hang with 4 blocks where 2 would have chenille bunnies and the opposing 2 would have chenille carrots. It is amazing what you find while cleaning:) I found a few started designs that now I have to decide how to proceed. Since I only had one bunny done, I decided to stop there and make a smaller table topper out of it. This measures approximately 13" and turned out very cute! My older daughter took it for next Easter.

Now what to do with the others?? My cleaning will result in fabric going to a friend, a quilt club, and then donating other supplies to a local Girl Scout troop.
I have to keep editing and forcing myself to stop being such a pack rat!

Now back to cleaning and designing- I have to get lots done on this end before all is packed away for a month...
Have a fabulous week!
