Spring is visiting South Dakota


I know it's much too early in the year to expect this lovely weather to stay, but it's sure nice to enjoy it for a few days in March. It was a lovely day to play hooky for most of the work day. Actually I had already planned to take the day off! YIPPEEEEE!
I met some girlfriends for coffee and then we walked over to the Pin Cushion to check out their annual Fat Quarter Frenzy. Fat quarters on sale - what more could a quilter ask for, right? I bought a few, but tried really hard to be practical. And I dropped off the baby quilt to be quilted.
Later I went home and spent a little time playing with my scrap basket pictured here. I am working on some string blocks that may make a dent in my scrap basket if I make enough of them. And those blocks would make a good donation quilt. This is what the basket looked like AFTER making 4 blocks and digging all the way to the bottom. It's still overflowing. My stash is out of control.
