Christmas Through The Year Finish

christmasthroughtheyearbutton
It’s so hard to believe that it’s the end of April..time is just going too fast.  I barely made the end of the month deadline but I did it, and here is 013
my finish for April…two snowmen runners. You can check here on Allie’s blog to see what others have made.  I am so excited about this club..in fact I have my pompoms raised and I’m doing high kicks!! Trust me---this is a very scary sight! You don’t have to join each month, just when you can, and by the time Christmas rolls around you’ll have some gifts made ahead of time.  Here’s Allie’s explanation of why she started the club.  OK, my arms are tired…pompoms down :-)!

I have started on my Charlevoix quilt..log cabin blocks.  I have two more  go rounds of lights, and two more go rounds of darks..plus some cute applique in some blocks.  I just love this fabric.  After I’m off the computer I am back to working on it!

I enjoyed watching the Royal Wedding while working on my blocks.  So beautiful and uplifting.  But then thoughts turn to those in the South dealing with the aftermath of such devastating weather.  The enormity of it all is just so hard to comprehend.  Prayers to all involved.

What cute runners. Having been on holiday (no papers, no TV!), I've only just heard about all the tornadoes etc, and my heart goes out to those in the affected areas.

Those snowmen runners are really cute. You are an over achiever, not one, but two table runners? I wish I could say the same.
