Some folks don't get enough Easter on Sunday, they have Easter Monday too, which is news to me, but now I'm in the know, thanks to my cupcake calendar. I got this calendar from Rene at Rene Creates and I take pictures of the yummy looking cupcakes all the time, but they rarely make it to my blog.
But this cupcake is too cute to ignore, plus it's Easter Monday.
The weather here has been perfect for a regular ice cream cone, overnight our grass turned green, Cooper's favorite places turned really green, and the trees are budding, I think spring has really sprung! It feels great to finally catch up with all the spring pictures I've been seeing on other blogs.
On Friday I made Block 3 of the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along by Moose on the Porch.
I substituted my background fabric for the center square in my blocks, I got the idea from a few other folks who did the same. At first I wasn't crazy about block three's design.
But when I add it to the group, I think it looks great. I'm enjoying this quilt along, the designs have been easy and I'm loving getting to work with the bright fabric.
They are Sketchers Shape-Ups! The company claims the shoe's innovative design will give me the butt of a 20 year old.....or something like that. I'm still getting used to them, they make me walk like a duck, but a nice side bonus, I can now reach items on the top shelf of my kitchen cabinets. I'm mainly planning on wearing them when I walk Cooper. Walking Cooper usually doesn't result in much of a workout for me, he's a sniffer and a dawdler, which makes it hard for me to work up much of a sweat.

I'll spare you my before pictures, but stayed tuned, there might possibly be after pictures!
And finally, I'm sticking with Jake until he's done! Thanks so much for all the comments, you are an inspiring group, and right, I'm really close and should stick with it. And one of the reasons I started this project was for a break in fabric and piecing drama, come to find out, I like a little drama in my sewing room! So I'm going to appreciate this simple little block that needs its friends to come to life and turn into something amazing.
I didn't get any sewing done over the weekend, and have a busy week ahead of me, but I'm hoping to wrap up that project by next Monday!
