Me and the girls have been quite busy launching Spring in Chicagoland. We've had some extremely warm days and enjoyed them thoroughly with picnics, outings and late nights. One standout happened recently when the girls and I particpated in the Linus Project. The girls painted quilt blocks with fabric markers and I stitched it all together to create a quilt. The quilts from Project Linus are donated to kids in the hospital so they have something special. Created by kids, for kids. I love the concept. The girls had a blast and loved that I put my sewing skills to good use. I do love sewing but loathe being trapped indoors to do it.
