Looks like it's going to be a drizzly week here in New Hampshire... doesn't bode well for DD's first softball game of the season on Monday, unless they are going to be wearing mud boots! Mud and cletes ... NOT a pretty picture!

Hey, if you want to give the Bottled Rainbow project a whirl, check it out here (also linked on the sidebar to the right). It is meant to build a complete quilt, but I was also thinking if it was a bit scary for anyone, just start with a single block! Pick your favorite color and use the directions to play! You need a piece of neutral background, a solid in to set the color family you are using and then lots of scraps that coordinate! I found it fun! I am looking forward to exploring the next color...
I also finished up 1 of the 2 Easter totes I am making for the boys ~ now to fill them with goodies! I am attempting to do as much "re-purposing" as possible, or shall I say "whenever" possible. The handles on this tote would be an example: strap, cut in half, off of an old purse! :o)
Well, am stitching up a design for my mom for Easter, always multi-tasking! Hopefully can show you tomorrow! Snapped a needle in the process this morning ... GRRR!! I have found that the thread coming off the spool holder tends to catch occasionally and if I'm not right there (...oh...cause I'm mult-tasking???) it winds around, catches, pulls and snaps the needle! I bought a package of 50 on eBay...good thing, I guess? I got 50 for $11 and they came pretty quickly, so all good.
Off to do a bit of work for work, some housework and then back to creating!
Have a great day all!
