While at my local yarn shop - The Quilted Thread - I finally came across the perfect quilt for our bedroom! I fell in love with it instantly! When I asked about the pattern I was told where I could find it, but that I shouldn't be too attatched to the poppies as it had been out of print for 2 years. Thus started my mission! I bought the pattern book, and have finally found all of the fabrics... more on that later...

My mama (on the right) had her birthday. I told her it would be fun to spend the day knitting with some friends. She agreed, and here you see mom with her cousin. We knit for a few hours by the fire place. Such a perfect way to spend a birthday. (forgive me, Mom, I know the picture isn't the greatest)

Maddy got some great new clothes for summer as a present from her Aunt (my sister). We love new clothes!

Mom and I spent a couple hours last weekend teaching Maddy's girlscout troop to sew. We made pillowcases for Conkerr Cancer. Conkerr Cancer is a fabulous program whose misson is to ensure every child undergoing longterm treatment has a brightly colored pillowcase for their hospital pillow to cheer up their stay. If you would like to help out, visit their site to locate your local chapter.

Katie finished her collection for Project Hope 2011. Her goods will be donated this week to the shelter. So proud of you, Katie!

Maddy had her Spring Concert. It was Super GOOD!

I wrote my To-Do list for the week. IT got long quickly. I got mad at it. I forgave it quickly, though, because it was written on my new journal from Karen over at Journal Junction. A cute journal can do that, you know.

As promised... here is more on my beautiful fabric...

Mom bought the fabric for me for a combination of my birthday and my anniversary with Kevin. I am still waiting for 4 more small cuts that I found elsewhere.

I found all of these beauties in an online shop called
Grand Bazaar Fabrics. When I found the first few on her site, but not the others, we called and they were soooooo friendly and helpful. They had just come back from several shows, and were still unpacking their fabrics. They were able to help me find the fabrics I was looking for. She shipped them THAT day, and I got them 2 days later... LITERALLY! TWO DAYS LATER! That was their standard shipping. I am so happy with their service, and their prices were better than a lot of the others I had checked out. Fabulous!!!

This print here is why I absolutely HAD to find the Michael Miller Poppy line!

Here's my progress on my purple sweater vest. So many rows... I hate small needles!

I've been so busy this week that my couch has missed me... I looked over one day and it was smirking at me...

Please tell me you see it, too!

If it starts to talk to me, I promise I will seek help!
