I must have this...

I am dying to have this book! Anyone who would like to send me a copy, please go ahead!!
 
If you follow any quilting blogs, you have probably seen the Farmers Wife Quilt Along.  I just ran across this during some online down time and I'm obsessed.
 
Camille's squares are where it's at
 

Those colors! I love how ever block is different.   I'm going to have to break down buy a ton of fabric, and that book, and  start quilting all these blocks!

March Flowers and April Showers

I finally jumped all in, and decided to order some April Shower charm packs after weeks of drooling over them.  I'm new to quilting and sewing and was kind nervous about ordering these and not being able to make anything nice out of them.
 
 
 
I have been following @danaquilts on instagram and feel head over hills for her mini quilt she made using April Showers fabric, so I'm going to try to replicate.
 
So here goes nothing! Anyone want to share some quilting tips?!?!

St. Louis Supercross

A few weekends ago, Dex and I went to St. Louis for Supercross.  This was our second time going and we loved it!  I actually got way more into it this year and found myself cheering on the riders.
 
I thought it would be awesome to have a panorama of the track and the dome, but as you can tell I'm not the best with panorama pictures!

We had amazing seats! We couldn't see the whole track but what we could see we could see really good.  We spent almost the entire day at the arena watching the riders practice and we had pit passes where fans could get autographs. 
 
We didn't do a whole lot with the pit passes because that place was absolutely packed. You could hardly walk around let alone see anything.  But I did catch a glimpse at these little cuties and got Dex to find us a spot for a closer look.

These little guys got to race on the track, sign autographs and do everything like the pros. They were so cute. You could tell they were getting tired of signing autographs pretty quick though!

Once we got back to our room we were exhausted.  But it never fails, I got sick off the hot dog from the arena and was up nearly all night.  I swore I would never eat another hot dog again!

We came home the next day and I planted my Cherry tree and new Grape vines!  Hopefully I'll have my own little orchard one day.
