Our azalea's are beginning to bloom. But one bush is showing a lot of damage to the buds due to a freeze a couple of weeks ago. We think our Japanese maple has lost a bunch of leaves from the same cause. Sigh. But some of the azaleas are looking great. Hopefully sometime this week I can get a great picture of one or two in full bloom. In the last two weeks we've gone from near record lows to near record highs. I hope that doesn't mean we're going to have a hotter than usual summer.
First up let's look at the goals. Oh yea! It was a good week.
Sew RWB rows together✅. Do I border? — top done but without border yet.
Quilt and bind one of my quilts ✅ Yea, another finish. (Still need label.)
Lay out and sew Happy Blocks quilt #1 ✅ Finished top!
Continue working on green basket ✅ Ready to prep for quilting- backing and batting.

Attend Studio 180 LeMoyne Star workshop at guild
I may not get all of these done as I'm going to my guild in the Richmond area either for a full day or to spend the night before the guild meeting and attend it. It's an early morning drive on Saturday if I don't spend the night at a friend's house. I won't be home until late in the afternoon Saturday.
My Stash Busting statistics does not show any busting going on, just enhancement! Oh-oh.

This could have been a disaster buying 8 yards of fabric but I am trying to quilt at least 2 of my own quilts every month, more if I don't have customer quilts. So in the end, I only brought in 1.625 yards that didn't get used. I am pretty happy about the whole thing actually.
Nothing like a good week finishing goals added to a decent month of fabric usage.
Now let's partee! You know the routine -- check out these linky parties and see what folks are doing across the internet. Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday and To Do Tuesday. (OOPS I've been neglecting to come back and link up to the Tuesday party. I'll try to be better this week.)
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
