Crazy season!

It went from cold to warm and back to COLD here with snow last night...Spring in VA is just CRAZY!!!!

I have been busy doing a lot of things and feel like I have done nothing at all! Don't you hate when that happens?


I did finally make something with my very first Viewmaster block.  This is the very very first one, the one in the tutorial came a few versions after this one, it is the original.  I have had it just sitting and doing nothing so I decided to make a little pillow with it. I think it is super cute other than the fact that sometimes when I see it out of the corner of my eye it looks a wee bit like a boob...maybe that is just me.

If you do make the Viewmaster block ( or any other project you make using one of my tutorials) please post it into my Flickr Group, I LOVE seeing your projects!!!!!


I was also able to finish the Aurifil Designer BOM by Jeni at In Color Order. It is call the Boxer and is very cool! I used Kate Spain Serenade and will be for the entire quilt.


Since it was snowing again, the kids were off from school so I dragged them to Downtown to walk around and get some energy out.

They were so thrilled :o)

We have a real old time pharmacy! The nicest people work there!!!!

that still makes rose water :o)

We saw this beautiful red door


Went to some antique shops and Adam found his favorite

and I found mine

Stopped into Hyperion for a coffee for me and hot chocolate and a muffin for the kids

some quick snuggles

and back to hoping winter will be a distant memory very soon!

Looks like you had a great afternoon with your kidlets. I am jealous that you have a pharmacy that makes rose water. I don't know of any place around here where I could get any.

Looks like a great time with your kids. I'd have opted for the hot chocolate with them. Looks lush!

I was looking for the snow in your pictures...because I didn't see any. =) There it was at the end.

Glad you had a lovely day out with your children...sometimes those snow days are made for memories!

What a fun post :) I haven't seen snow for few years now and honestly I don't miss it. Only around the Christmas time :)

Love your Viewmaster pillow ~ so cute!
We've been having the same weather (minus the snow) here in the Pacific Northwest ~ up to 64 the other day and this morning it's 37. I don't mind tho ~ really do love it here in Oregon and the cold weather suits me just fine.
What a lovely time you had with your children ~ all because of some snow!

I am so DONE with winter! Too bad winter's not done with me - it feels like -1 here today! Very sweet pictures and I love the Viewmaster pillow!

Looks like a fabulous snow day! I'm in WI so when we have a snow day it usually means it's too crummy to go anywhere :(

I went to school in Fredericksburg! poking into the shops is always fun - my favorite place is Lee's ice cream (even when it's cold out). yumm.
