March felt like a long month for me! We had a good Spring Break but I would have loved an extra week off. My family went on a trip to Abilene, Texas and we visited the Abilene Zoo, Adamson-Spalding Storybook Garden, and the National WASP World War II Museum (located in Sweetwater, TX). Here’s a few photos from our trip! Sadly, my toddler picked up a case of strep throat and a few of our Spring Break days were spent getting her feeling better.
I also started working on a quilting project over the break. I am using some fabric that I picked up from a lucky find at the thrift store. It was fun to get back into sewing again. Now that my daughter is getting older and more independent, I can spend a little time doing things I enjoy. It’s still not as much time as I would like, but I’ll take anything at this point! I am making my daughter a half-square triangle quilt. The llamas and colors are so much fun! I don’t have a particular pattern to follow…I’m just kind of winging it. Here are some progress photos!
Since I had a week off for Spring Break, I had more time for some reading than I usually do. Here are my reviews for March!
