Dust off the Homeplate

There has been so much going on this month. But isn't spring just like that? Winter is in the rear view mirror and people are out and about. There are wrap up events and others just starting...ball diamonds are dusting off the home plates. Though I am not participating in any ball games myself, I know  and hear that is the satisfying sound of a leather ball on hickory. Play ball...but in the meantime...

I have completed my Humboldt Strong quilt, LAQ by Kim Caskey. This Take-5 block is set on point with white/yellow sashings and star cornerstones. My wish for this quilt is that it will help to bring some comfort for lives lost and families that are forever changed by the tragedy near Nipiwan Saskatchewan on April 6, 2018.

Kim has beautifully quilted this with a Maple Leaf pattern. This quilt has been prayed over and been provided with blessings for whomever receives this quilt.

Between rounds of these Take-5 blocks and events involving grandchildren I have been using up the yellow strings. (27 to date)

I have had overnight chick guests with my youngest granddaughter.

I had volunteered to facilitate at my grandson's 4-H multi club judging day.

I have now celebrated my 67th birthday with a lovely round of family events.
