What'cha Doin' Wednesday

have i ever mentioned that i LOVE this stuff???
yep, i do and i used a lot of it today!



once the house was cleaned and some finishing touches of easter
were put here and there...



i spent the rest of the day preparing these blocks...



and baking more banana bread




for a quilt class that i was teaching at my house.



we're a little late, but we started the joseph smith quilt.
we are working on it once a month, so it will take some time...
that's ok, i enjoyed the time with these gals and
i look forward to the friendships that will grow throughout the next year.
i only wish i had room for more...

p.s. a little 'i don't want to forget moment'...when bub got home from school he asked what he could do to help me? (sweet huh!) i don't remember if i gave him a specific task, but the next thing i know he had the vacuum out and was putting the baby in the back pack. (ahhh...)
the best part...he put the baby in the backpack backwards :).
i love that kid!!!
thanks bub, for helping me...your still the bestest!!!

Oh I wish I could come to your class! That would be so much fun. The Joseph Smith Quilt sounds wonderful. I can't wait to see a glimpse of it. I love your log cabin blocks. Great colours! OH, and banana bread? Your students are very lucky!

Have a great day!

Hi Julie, I hadn't heard about the Joseph Smith tribute quilt until now. I searched on the internet but can't find anyone who sells it. Do you have any ideas? Thx!

Hahaha -- I hope the baby is turned the right way now! Sounds like you had a wonderful day and thanks for the Windex tip -- I didn't know they made anything other than window cleaner!

Well no one ever asks what they could do to help me. So I'm impressed. What goodie is inside those cute tins? Or did I miss that? hmm sometimes I do miss things. I have peppermint spray I spray on my counters and it makes the whole house smell clean. I love that. The log cabin blocks look wonderful. Such a classic block but I love it.

What a great day. Bub is such a sweetheart. I loved how you wrapped up all the little breads in bows. Great quilt blocks. I have the same quilt but it is shades of green my Granny made it for me one year for Christmas. I hope you have a great time at your class. Have blessed Thursday!

I love Windex too. Even use it to clean my longarm machine and the rails.

Lovely log cabin blocks and the banana bread is so cute decorated.

Thanks for last night. I came home having learned so much more. I always come home so happy after quilting classes. Your blocks turned out perfect. I can't wait to work on mine.
You have the nicest kids BTW.
