I Spy Completed~

 I Spy a dragon fly on a field of blue,
 apron strings, butterfly wings,

 a ladybug or two,

no really quite a few! 


I spy a rocket ship, a train and tracks, a police car fast!

 The world on a spin, a flower's grin,   crayons in a row,

 a robot on show.

One snowflake,  

one bumblebee,

"my house" that's standing by a tree.

There are happy stars, and racing cars,

A man on a bike,

and a bowling ball's STRIKE!

There are puppies and cats,

their fronts and their backs.

I spy zebras, and chicks,

cows and owls,

A fox, some fish, and dino tricks.

I spy soccer balls, and tennis balls, and baseballs too,

Money to buy your tickets,

-don't forget your shoe!

I spy the church with its pointy steeple,


 and smiling faces of happy people.

There is plenty to see, I leave you the rest,

 With a "Thank you for coming! That's it, God Bless!"

I have been working on the silly little rhymes for about as long as the quilt! Second graders love the 
I Spy books, sometimes my class keeps them checked out of the school library for the majority of the school year. How perfect that the quilt is done, and will be on display in the classroom for Open House this coming Thursday. 


"The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah." Psalm 24:1, 10

"What I Did on Easter Vacation"

 The green houses for the houses quilt along - April's quota! These houses are a 12 inch block, not the 3 1/2 inch ones...

I haven't sewn on the tiny houses for a month, but I can't wait, I swapped some little window figures with Annette of Sunshine Yellow, and my sweet friend Kim from Pokeytown  donated to the windows, too!


  The "hot-crossed nine patch" for Block Lotto, I sure like this one in plaid.


 I made 9 for Block Lotto, and I like how Sophie put them on point...look, I made a heart!

 A little paint and a sale at our new Hobby Lobby...the pink bucket is for Lydia.

 ~ This tiny pot is waiting for her polka dots ~
(I make dots using an un-sharpened pencil, this one is a primary pencil with a bigger barrel.)

On our trip to Solvang, Beth and I played with this pieced pincushion pattern. 
Can you have too many cute pincushions?

We went swimming, sewed, watched tv, drove down by the ocean, 
and visited a really cool quilt shop in Buellton, Ca. 

called the Creation Station
The store was full of very creative quilts and antique sewing machines. 
LoVeD this shop! I wish it wasn't so far away ~

 So, now, I need to get ready for school again, but the break was wonderful! 
What do you know, 2 posts in 1 week, I'm shocked! LOL  :-}

Come and see, Go, and tell!
