A Mini-Quilt And Some Momentary Mayhem

We've been really, really busy with activities around here!  Sixth grade graduation, a birthday, participating in high school graduation as a grad marshal, exams, ice cream socials, cookouts, soccer tryouts, getting ready for summer......Sheesh!  So much going on! I haven't been the best about posting or commenting lately, and I'm really sorry about that.  I don't mean to neglect my blog friends!  Anyway, give me a few weeks and things should be back to "normal", whatever that means.  Is there a "normal" with two busy teen boys?  I'd love to know!


Beautiful!!
Recently I participated in a fun mini-quilt swap organized by Kris.  Michelle from L7 Quilt Co. was my amazing swap partner.  I was sooooo excited to receive this adorable mini-quilt made with Ruby fabric from Michelle in the mail.  Love it Michelle!!  Thank you!!


Don' t you love the way she had it all wrapped up with the treats inside the quilt?

She was so sweet to send along these fun goodies to go along with it.  Including a super cool old spool! I don't know about you, but I  enjoy seeing what other swappers give and receive, so I can snag some ideas for the next swap that I do!

Yes, the chocolate was open before I took the picture.  I couldn't resist!

Give me a day or two and I'll post pictures of what I made and sent to Michelle.  I still want to show you what I sent to my friend LeAnn too! I'm getting behind on my posts.  The end of the school year is so crazy! I'll catch up!  Be on the look out for some picture filled posts in the next few weeks as I play catch up!
