Instead of going away this weekend, we did a staycation.
We paddled and biked around Maryland.
We enjoyed a day at Cunningham Fall State Park

This week I received a bunch of freebies.
I will never pay for a magazine again!
I have listed the main Freebie Sites on my sidbar.
If you check them once a week and fill out the forms.
Your mail box will soon be full of great products.
I set up a junk email so my regualr mailbox isn't flooded.
I have never had anyone call or sell my info to other companies.
Just make sure you read about what you are signing up for.

It took me three days to make all these little squares.
They didn't come out square but I trimmed them up.
Now I can be creative in my rows.
Today I worked all day putting all the pieces together.

Here are the middle leaf blocks.
They were pretty easy to sew together. Here are the leaf squares with the sashing.
I need to work on squaring my blocks.
My blocks turned out 1 inch smaller than the instructions.
One of my blocks is a bit taller on one side.
Grrrrrr, but hopefully I will get better as I go along.
Next I am working on 50 little squares and 96 tiny triangles

While in Lancaster, I picked up wall hanging kit.
It was from a local quilt shop.
All the fabric was picked out in the shop.
I love the bright fall colors.
My goal last week was to cut the pieces!
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
I was surprised Sunday morning with
breakfast made by my eldest son.
He came home early in the morning to surprise me.
After church we went to see Star Trek the movie.
We ate a piece of cheesecake from
the Cheesecake Factory!!!!
For supper my Sarah and Chris made
chicken fettuccine and chocolate chip
I also receive a lovely tshirt from Matthew.
He was away at college this weekend.

over by the Dulles Airport.
It has almost every type of plane ever made,
in this very large hanger.
Also a great display of space stuff.
This was up in the air control tower.
