I'm still alive

It's been awhile since I wrote the last time.  I have just been pretty busy dealing with the end of school year stuff....still have 2 1/2 days to go until we are out for the summer.  The kids are looking forward to it....I'm thinking I will miss the third graders I work with but I will see them all again next year since we are looping up with them.  Should be fun.
I have also been very busy trying to get back into college.  Was wanting to try to take some classes this summer but the college couldn't seem to work fast enough for me to get enrolled so I will have to wait until the fall.  That might not be such a bad thing, give me one more free summer before I am bogged down with work, school work and kids.  lol

I have a few pictures to share. First off, I took the time to organize my fat quarters.  They were in desperate need.  Think they look nice all lined up by colors or by fabric lines if I bought the set.

 Also I have bought a few more goodies....I REALLY need to stay off etsy (I know I say that every time and I never listen to myself)

 This first picture is the Rhapsodia fabric line...along the top of the stack of fabrics....then some other fat quarters to match it and toward the bottom of the pic, some yardage of Rhapsodia in the cream.  I bought these from Intrepid Thread....she always sends two 5" charm squares with the order. :)

 Then I bought these at ShuShu Style on Etsy.  The bird cage and the leaves along with the two fat quarters are for a wall hanging for my cousin.  She is graduating high school this month.  I will throw in a couple more bright colors to go with it.  Think it will be cute.  Her mom says she loves neon green....hope it's bright enough...think she will love it regardless.

Then I picked up these two fat quarters also.  Bought them to go with the bird material....but they don't.  lol

Then.....I wanted to show some more progress on my Hexie project.  Besides what I have sewn together....I have a whole bucket full of hexies ready to be added to the quilt.  Loving it!!!

Here's a final pic of my daughter, who always reminds me to Not Forget to have Fun once in awhile!!!!!!!
