WOW Spring has sprung here in Central Texas.
We had a huge hail storm Friday Actually had golf ball size hail and tons of pea sized:( No damages here but other were not as lucky:( We did get 1.5 in of rain and with the hail maybe a total of 2 in. Next rain is due at the end of the week... hope it's just rain!


Poor Bob! He thought if he sat under the swing he would be ok but then the hail started up. He ran really fast and went under the grill. There is a little shelf he can get on under the grill and the cover helped him to. He was ok:)
Got some quilting and sewing done:)

This is the second Project Linus top I got made.
The last one was in reds:) Will put them in line to be quilted.

Ok where did the week go?? Seems as if it flew by! Must be the age starting to show:)

My grand daughter's birthday is Mon but we are partying today:) She will be 3. What a fun age!!!! Just wish I could see her more:(

I did get some quilting done this week and lots of sewing:) I also had a great lunch out with friends and our Guild mtg. I now have a temporary crown... it's all silver and shiny... so hoping the permanent one has some kind bling on it.... crowns are suppose to! Rubys, diamonds, and sapphires would be great:) I get my teeth cleaned on Monday... always something isn't it?

Ok on with the pictures.....
This is Dolly's Sweet Sophistication Quilt.

It is So true that March comes in like a lion!

But not so much weather wise but life wise. I had a lovely... not!... root canal on Thursday. They took the broken piece out so I have a jagged tooth packed with cotton and some sealer until the 19th. Ok I would not wish a root canal on anybody!!! Not even my worst enemy... which thank goodness I have none:)And they may still not be able to save the tooth... depends on if the other crack is too bad to fill and place a crown on. My crown will have sapphires and diamonds on it for sure!

So I lost 3 days of sewing and quilting because of this tooth:( I am back to whatever my normal is:) But unfortunately my hubby caught that stomach virus that is going around:( Poor guy!!! I had him locked in his bedroom until he started feeling better and then went in with a hasmat outfit and Lysoled and bleached everything:) He is back in bed...

So I only got a little quilting done this week:(

This is Sarah's beautiful Dresden Plate lap quilt for her m…
