Making progress on my 2 Gallon Crock

I started this 2 Gallon Crock  by Primitive Gatherings last year and decided I wanted to finish this UFO

I just finished all of my geraniums last night  .  The pattern did not call for the bead in the center of each flower. My dear friend Cheryl  ( So many quilts , So little time ) made her 2 Gallon Crock last year and used these beads in her flowers and mailed me her leftover beads.  They really add a nice touch don't you think ?
This is the pattern cover. As you can see I have the stars to stitch and need to go and pick up some white thread today to finish those.
I pulled these fabrics out of my stash to use for my  5  quilt blocks. 
Hoping to finish this project this weekend and check this project off my UFO list ;-)

 I put on my hat and  worked in the yard  for awhile.   Fed all of my roses and gave them all some Rose Soil I had.  As I looked around I just had to take some pictures to share with you of what is blooming now .  ENJOY !

Double chocolat Speck and baby quilt ...................

 Finally got some sewing time in yesterday !

I finished sewing on my border for SPECK made of all this yummy Double Chocolat fabric by Moda AND...............

 I finished sewing a baby quilt just need to sit down and sew on the binding
The backing is this fun Minky fabric !  This baby quilt is for a sweet girl that checks in on our kitty when we go away.  She is due in July but I would like to give it to her early.

I have not posted for over a week :-(      Friday we cleaned and taped the kitchen .  Saturday we went down to the kids new house and I made curtain panels for both of my girls houses.  Panels for 5 windows in one house &  2 windows in the other house. Our neighbor painted our kitchen Sunday in a faux finish . The walls were white before , now they are alot warmer .

                   I am thinking I might like to make a little valance to go on the top of each of these little windows

HMMMMM!! Double Chocolat Speck

Nothing like making a little Speck quilt top out of Moda Double Chocolat to start spring !

I was gifted  the  Little Bites by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. Speck pattern  with to  2 -   2 1/2"  charm packs of Moda's Double Chocolat  fabric for my birthday last November .   It felt so good to actually sit down and sew something and this little quilt was perfect.  I still need to find fabric for my sashing & border.

This last month we have been busy helping the kids with their new home that they moved into Easter weekend.  We have also been busy keeping up with the gardens and spring cleaning .  I thought I might share a few more pictures of what is blooming  right now

                   Just love this time of year with everything starting to bloom !!
