WOW ... what a Spring Break!

Well this week has been relaxing and peaceful.... if you do not count the occasional bickering that kids do.

I have been able to clean house a little and actually get kids to help.

I have been able to get oldest boy to finish the community service he needed to do.
I have been able to stitch and received stash in the mail.
I have even been surprised when hubby took the family out to dinner and last night he came home with a surprise for me.

I found these online and had to get them. I received them on Tues.









I received this award yesterday from Barb and I need to pick 8 people to share this with....

Here are my picks and boy this was hard.... You all are awesome!
Donna
Mary
Velda
Carol
Bette
Lori
Barb
Janice

Hubby came home last night with a dozen red roses.... he said I know you love yellow roses... but you deserve red roses that mean love and not yellow ones that mean friendship. LOL






Here is my 5th finish of the year... I just love this yellow hand dyed fabric. (sorry not sure what kind it is)



Then today, the mail comes and I receive the two large grab bags that I purchased from Shirley .
She did an awesome job at spoiling me in these grab bags.....

The first two photos are from grab bag #1....
The following photos are from grab bag #2....
