This lovely stack of fabric was obtained at last springs International Quilt Market. I was lucky enough to go with my mother-in-law, and we had a great, I mean great!! time. This fabric is the Sonnet Collection by April Cornell (I tried to link to Moda but their web page must be down). Anyway, it has been sitting on my shelf all this time watching me and quietly waiting for me to DO something with it!!. Soon very soon, I promise!!
In other exciting news, that does not include finding my camera-which I have not, Everett not only turned 10 this week he also won first place at the science fair. In our school it is mandatory to participate in the science fair in 5th and 6th grade, but in his grade it is optional. We thought it would be good experience for him for next year and he did so well. The key is the interview with the judges, a slightly nerve wracking experience for a kid. He knew his information and did a good job in the interview! I would recommend the science fair to anyone who has the opportunity to try it. Even to home-schoolers, just the process of how things work and the why, opens a child's mind-there is something very valuable in the simple process of exploring cause and effect.
