Spring break

I got more done on A Parrot.


And I got the 11th fussy cut star finished, using Savannah by Jo Morton.


But the big news is that this happened on Friday.


He's hiding from the camera, in case you couldn't tell.
Our boy child is home for Spring break.  Hooray!  Mia is happy.


Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi.  Have a good week!

I'm sure it is great to have your DS home on his break. Love your parrot - and I am always amazed with those stars you are making - do they all go into the same quilt in the end? Enjoy your week with DS. Mel

Loving your parrot sampler Margaret and fantastic framing choices for your recent finishes! I have always loved that Mary Allen sampler. Congrats on your gifts from Annette and your fussy-cut starts are fantastic! Glad you got to enjoy some time with your kids recently too.

Navy and gold fussy star is stunning. Looks like your boy and cat are having themselves a lovefest!

Brigitte said...

Oh Margaret, this parrot looks quite simply gorgeous. Great progress! And another star is finished.
Isn't it great to have one of the kids home for a certain time. A great time for spoiling them a bit.

Melanie said...

These stars are amazing. I really love them.

I want to see a pictorial of those two running across a field towards each other with happy la-la-la music in the background. :)
