Life this week...

So I have had an EXTREMELY busy week, this week! But that doesn't mean that I didn't get some fun in :)
Aside from proctoring FCAT, I also had all my board meetings this week! The third week of the month is always crazy. My Christian Education committee meeting went great this month! We covered a wide range of topics and have some exciting things coming down the pipe in the next couple of months in our children's ministry.
The church council meeting was also this week and it was long, but productive.

Tuesday I went to my Women's Bible Study in the morning and then I was able to squeeze in some sewing time with Lisa before picking Kyle up from school!
We did another block for our Spring Applique Quilt! I haven't stitched mine down yet, but it is fused.

I am LOVING working on this quilt! It is such a joy to see it come together.

and Lisa worked on stitching some of her blocks down!

I LOVE this quilt! It is so much fun to make :)

Tuesday evening we had Cub Scouts and Kyle ended up being the ONLY Webelos I there!! So he earned his Soccer belt loop with the Tigers :)

Wednesday, this week, Ronnie was off! We had a good time together. In the morning I went to the school for FCAT and then Ronnie and I had lunch with Kyle at school. Ronnie went through the lunch line like one of the students and got "school pizza". He was very excited about this. He also got 2 chocolate milk cartons! Crazy man! Wednesday night, we had church, of course! Whacky Wednesday Worship!! We had a good group of kiddos show up...16 elementary-aged and 12 middle and high-schoolers. They all had a blast on the playground or playing kickball!  I am still waiting on written consent from a few parents before I can post any pics! But they had a ton of fun!

Thursday, after I finished at the school, I went up to the First Baptist Church of Mount Dora. The quilting group there was having a fabric sale! A lady passed away and they were selling her stash to help the husband pay for the memorial costs. This woman had more fabric, books, patterns & notions than a quilt shop-LITERALLY. And they were selling her QUILT SHOP QUALITY fabric for $4 a yard! Books for $2 and patterns for $1!! Fat quarters for 50 cents!! I AM SERIOUS! Needless to say I had a great time looking around...but I only got there with about 20 minutes before I had to leave to pick Kyle up....so I went back on Friday ;) I'll blog about that experience in another post :)))

So, skipping Friday day....I'll mention that after posting my Simple Woman's Daybook here I ended up getting back out of "comfy" clothes and driving my best friend, Lisa to the E.R. We were there until after 3:00 AM. UGGH. The good news is that she is doing well. Please do pray for her though, as she will be facing some tough obstacles and decisions in the near future. But....I did not sew a single stitch last night. :)

Today I slept in until around 11:30. I did some housework and then off we went to Kyle's basketball game. I just got home a little bit ago. The UFC fight is on tonight and we are going down to Eddie & Nancy's to watch that. While there, I am going to start a NEW jelly roll quilt! I am SOOOOOOO excited about this! ONE jelly roll, a machine and scissors is all you need!! I found the tutorial from Missouri Start Quilting Company. The tutorial is on YouTube and can be found HERE. It is simply AMAZING! I can't wait to get started....this is the fabric I am going to use:



Isn't it fun!?!!

I'll end this post with a picture of Patches...I found her in my quilt rack! Sew cute! :o)
