It's a tough day to think that anything I could write in a blog could be important with the devastation that we have seen in Japan. I know that our thoughts and prayers are with that country today as they deal with what has happened and what is yet to come for them. It hits home especially hard for those of us living in "earthquake country" and makes one wonder when our next big one will hit.
With our latest houseguest gone, I have had a chance to spend a little more time in the sewing studio this week playing "catch up" on my blocks.
Block #20, the final block is now out for the Thread Head Quiltalong. I am so excited to get it finished and assemble the top. Mine will be queen sized when finished so there will be eighty one blocks total.
The foundation for the Be Mine Cathedral Window pillow with Melissa is finished and I need to add my squares this week. I think I am going to do it in greens.
We've had a birthday as well this week. I had to make an E.T. cake for the birthday boy and I can't believe that I forgot to take a picture of it before we ate it. It was a hit and tasted delicious anyway!!!

Spring is definitely in the air, but we have been assessing the damage from the freeze that we had about two weeks ago. Our bouganvilla, hibiscus and several of our bigger plumerias really got hit hard. The region's strawberries also took a hit. It was such a strange time for us to have such cold weather. If the tortoises are correct, we are in for prolonged warmer weather as they have emerged from hibernation this week. Yeah!
