Quilters Accountability Week 11

This last week of accountability fell in the middle of spring break! So in between entertaining my children -( or were they entertaining me?) I actually did get some "stuff" done!.
First on The Quilt of Valor Front... I got another 5th grade quilt quilted. And I quilted a quilt sent to me from Patsy M of the Pueblo West Quilters in Pueblo CO. It will get bound this weekend and then be ready for the Warrior Games.

Next - I wanted to get a Baby Quilt done for my cousin who is in the process of adopting a little girl. They have her, and are on their way back. I surprised even myself - and I finished the quilt. It is even bound! I used lavendar minkee on the back and now I think I want it for myself.... (for some reason the picture is upside down)

And the last thing that I have been working on this month - step 5 of the Carolina Crossroads. It is by no means finished, but I think I have a good start on step 5.

So all in all I think that progress is being made?

For a couple of our spring break days we just hung around the house in the day, then hit the gym in the afternoon. The oldest still had swim practice - no rest for High schoolers!
So we played Wii. We had issues splitting the TV in half - so we marked it with tape!!!

We spent a day at the Denver Museum - again getting home in time for swim practice. Just in case you ever wondered what Wrangler Man looks like, here he is all cleaned up. I was trying to horn in on the picture - not sure it worked to my favor tho!!
We spent some time at the target range. Both ours, and the 4-H one. Ours was much more fun, the sun was shining. When we headed to the 4-H range the temps had dropped from 65 to 30, and the snow was moving in.

And last - but defineatly not least we headed up to Cameron Pass and went SnowShoeing. It was a heck of a climb, and I now think a "moderate" trail should be for tough people - not wimps like me. We climbed for 2 whole miles, it was nuts!
So beautiful though. It had snowed the day before so everything was just clean and pristine. I was surprised that it was so windy at the top, but during the climb the wind didn't bother us at all.

well - thats all for me. Today was a snow day as a huge storm moved in last night. So this morning I did chores in about 10 inches of snow, and tonite I did them in mud. It got up to 40 deg today. A great day to have a snow day!! We LOVED it!
Head on over to Bari's to see what others are up to

Way to go, Alycia! I love that baby quilt. The colors are gorgeous....and minkee on the back....what more could a baby ask for?

I envy your snowshoeing expedition. That looks like so much fun! I am glad you took time to spend with Wrangler Man and the kids over the break. It is SO worth it!

I can't wait to see your Carolina Christmas finished up. Those colors are cool!

Great work and great fun!
