Last night we had the privilege of attending the annual spring band concert.

It's always fun to hear the music that the kids have all worked so hard to learn

during the second half of the school year.

Joe put in some extra hours with a handful of other students in the Jr. High Jazz Band.

This group of kids woke up extra, extra early one day each week to practice their

songs before school would start in the morning. Such dedication from them sure paid

off as they sounded wonderful :)

We've also found a bit of time to sneak in some new projects!!

"Flair" panels make a wonderful center square for a table topper.

This topper has been such a popular pattern here in the shop and is a quick one to sew up. The pattern is called "Dynamic Duo~ Soprano" by New Leaf Stitches and the fabrics used are "Flair" by Gudrun Erla of Red Rooster Fabrics.

Now that the weather has shaped up a bit outside it's a bit fun to take some outdoor shots.

About a month ago we showed you a sneak-peak of this un-quilted "Madeline" quilt and it's finally done and ready to show! The pattern is a Schnibbles by Miss. Rosie called Madeline and the fabrics used are by Moda's 3 Sisters called "Grace"

And last, but certainly not least is "Charlotte" which was previewed in last weeks post.

This has been a well received and quite fun table topper out of the new Jovial fabrics by BasicGrey (yes--it is winter fabric) The pattern, also quite fun to sew, is out of a fabulous book by Me & My Sister Designs called 3 Times a Charm. Both the book and sample are "must-see" item the next time you stop into the shop!!

Hope you all have had a chance to get out and enjoy the wonderful weather this week!
We have most certainly enjoyed the chance to do some much needed yard work, and give some attention to our flower beds and boxes!
