I had a Spring Tea on Saturday, it was a lot of fun! I invited a few ladies to come over and we wore our Spring dresses and hats. Of course I had to wear one of my vintage hostess aprons!
I used my mug rugs under the tea cups and gave one to each of my friends who came.
(recipe here) I only had four green napkins so my napkin was yellow. :)
I did not really like the cucumber sandwiches but did like the pineapple, pecan cream cheese sandwiches, they just needed some more pecans. 4 oz cream cheese, a drained small can of crushed pineapple and I would put at least 1/2 cup to 1 cup of chopped pecans. I also made balsamic strawberries with whipped cream. Yum! (recipe here)(recipe here)
Did you do anything to celebrate Spring?

They ended up being about 5 1/2 and 7 inches big.
I wan a $25 gift card from What About Rheema? to the Fat Quarter Shop! I was so excited! I have to admit, I did spend more then my gift card, but I got some fabric I had really been wanting!

Saturday I went to Quilts and Quilts in Branson. I think it is the biggest quilt shop I have ever been in! Here is the link to their website. http://www.quiltsandquilts.com/ I did not buy much, I got a yard of Rte 66 fabric for my husband's quilt, a small piece of pretty fabric for me and two pairs of scissors. I'm not sure how well you can see the scissors though.
We went to an Antique store in Historic downtown Branson and for $10 I bought several quilt blocks. A row of fans, I'm not sure what to do with these though.
There were six spool blocks.

I've been making more pinwheels! Yellow is one of my favorite colors! I had bought this ladybug material to make an apron for my sister a couple of years ago and this is what is left over.The yellow below was also bought for the apron, but I did not use it because I felt it was too childish, however it is perfect for my bug themed picnic quilt!
We had another snow day today. My cats are not normally allowed outside, but Oreo loves the snow! I'm not sure how to make the video not sideways. LOL
I think pinwheels is such a fun quilt block!
