Twenty-Eight Blocks and Counting

I have had such a productive week, both in the studio and out!  Not only have I finished several WIP’s, I managed to buy all three boys their school supplies for the year (well, most of it!) and have them sorted by child in ready to go bags. Go me!!! Told you I was on my A-game. This afternoon we will head over to our Elementary School for orientation for the younger two. Oldest is ready for school to start. Middle {Read More}

My oldest and middle (with dad’s help) bought me a pretty necklace and a new {Read More}

Riley Blake Mystery Block – March – Entry!

Last months block just plain muddled my brain, but once I took it apart and re-did it I was good to go. When March’s pattern came online and I watched the tutorial I sat back and relaxed.  It’s called Simplicity, and boy is it ever!
