I managed to get a little bit of sewing done this past weekend...my motivation levels have been pretty low.  I did get my scrappy trip and string blocks for the month done. I'm not going to show those again until the end of the year when I've finished all the blocks (seen one, seen them all).

I've been keeping up with Sherri Fall's Monday Mysteries (took the pic on Sunday - I'll get step 5 completed by next Sunday) .

And I cut out a wall hanging from the book The Blue and the Gray. For such a little quilt it took me forever to cut out (almost three weeks - doesn't help if you skip two week between when you start and when you finish).
My aunt gave me an Easter Lily for Easter...it still has lots of blooms. I'm not much of a photographer but I like how this picture turned out.

I can't get the pictures to line up in the center...

I Won!!

I had to take a picture as soon as I opened the package otherwise there would be drool all over it...

I won Bonnie Hunter's newest book! I have made several of Bonnie's free quilt patterns in the past, her patterns are great. I'm looking forward to reading this book cover to cover...I'm already thinking I see a Narragansett Blues quilt in my near future.
Winning this book is the perfect Leader Ender to (sorry couldn't help myself) my progress on my two in process scrap quilts...Bonnie's Scrappy Trips:

And string blocks...

I'm getting better (and quicker) at making both blocks.
