To give you a small glimpse of how much snow has melted and still needs to melt, look at this picture of the visitor center from February:
And here is the same walkway today. You can see there is still lots of snow left!
For some quilty news, I went to my LQS Quilt til you Wilt group last night. I was able to make all the blocks for quickie quilt. I'm making it for a neighbor that has become a good friend. It's made from 4 charm packs of Moda's Oak Leaves & Reel fabric line. I'm pretty happy with it, but there are things I wish I could have done differently, but oh well, what's done is done. Someone at the group said it looked Christmas-y...great! Not what I wanted to hear. I'm still deciding on a layout, but I'm pretty limited because there are only 20 blocks. It's seems all other layouts end up uneven....I still need to sew the blocks together and add borders. Seeing it here in the picture, it's kinda growing on me. :)
I also made the first block from the Patchwork Party blocks. It's called Capitol City Grill. These blocks are a bit of an extravagance ($7 each), but I love the Prairie Paisley fabrics, so I caved and signed up! Anyone else making these?
Here I go again...another long post! I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine! :)

We did get to go to a live taping of the show, but sadly, none of us were called to be a contestant. I was a neat experience, though, and we all had a fun time. Drew Carey is a great host and was pretty funny during the commercial breaks and other down times. It was a long day! We were up about 4:00am and at CBS about 6am to get a priority number. We didn't leave the CBS lot until 5:30pm!!
We also had tons of fun at Disneyland and California Adventure...I'll share pics and more stories a bit later. The same day we got home, we had family arrive for Zach's graduation. So, we're busy with visiting and sightseeing, graduation activities, etc.
