I love the month of April!

Spring is coming to the US finally and April is sprouting all kinds of new life at our new home!

We changed over our wooden calendar too…

This sweet hummingbird calendar came with the cabin… it was a keeper! And today is Easter Sunday tooπŸ₯°

And the last day of the month we celebrate 10 years together!!!

It has been a busy week around here… how about for YOU????

New Nail Strips Arrived in the Mail πŸ™‚

Lots of fun colors there… I am using the last of the light lavender color above now so it was time to restock πŸ™‚

I have made stellar progress on the Boho Quilt Along… the was a free week for catch up and I caught up and moved ahead!!!

I finished where I was on the quilting and moved to the 3rd row of blocks (there are 5 rows to stitch ~ So I am over halfway now!!!!)

Here is a black marked and the variegated thread I am using to hand quilt it….
Here is the bottom 2/3 now quilted πŸ™‚
Here is an overview of what is left….

Here is where I am this morning!!!

Linking this slow stitching progress to Kathy’s Slow Stitching Sunday linky party HERE<<<… Come see what everyone is linking up today πŸ™‚

Today I plan to re-make a mutant block I pieced yesterday… and I plan to slow stitch too.

My honey has been working really hard outside and finally got all the dead leaf piles gone and trimmed the bushes/trees we think will be able to stay… we got rid of all the saplings growing here and there unchecked as we have PLENTY of full grown trees … we don’t need MORE!

We are due to get our home painted this week so check back in next week and see how that is going too! Our painter got hurt last week and has been recuperating all week this week. Rick is ready to rent a lift and get this house painted but as it is cedar wood there are knots in the wood that need to be primed with shellac first and there is caulking to do too… so it will be a process. But we are determined to get this home looking like we imagine it and getting the exterior in order like it NEEDS!

Can you??? Good Luck! ❀

Thanks for visiting… now go visit Kathy’s and slay a dragon or two this week πŸ˜‰

    I have a perpetual calendar like that too. I embroidered mine many years ago and I still change it every month. How wonderful that it came with the cabin. Can’t wait to see the newly painted cabin too. Enjoy your pretty stitching. Happy Easter!

    I love the bright colours of the quilt along. One day I hope to start the Gypsy Wife Quilt, a couple years late. πŸ™‚ Getting a new place how you want is a lot of fun, and exhausting. We have one of the gardens put back and fully planted, and are really close to having the drawings finished for our sunroom addition. So exciting. Good luck with the painting. I hope there are no more delays.

    Your quilting looks so good on the quilt, BOHO is really coming along. I’m sure it feels good to get caught up. Congratulations on the 10 year anniversary coming up. Sometimes it just takes longer than we like to get a house fixed up. Rick needs to be patient and wait on the painter, he doesn’t need to strain himself trying to do the work himself. Happy stitching!
