Hare to believe that blue is almost done. I still have a several blue blocks to finish up today, but I am excited to look at what comes next. Wi-Fi issues at home left me off to a slow start this morning, but it is a three day weekend for reasons nobody can quite discern, so lots of sewing is sure to happen!
What are your plans?

I am slowly chipping away at light and bright blues, but the sewing time has been limited lately.

We saw the first sea turtle nest of the season today! The sea turtle preservation group is out on beach buggies every morning scouting for them, but this is the first marked nest we have seen.
The garden lattice blocks might be first up. I didn't make any flower blocks in green, but blue will make a nice addition to the collection.

I keep seeing this quilt on Pinterest and Etsy, but I can't figure out how to make it other than in long rows. I hate sewing long rows. There must be a way to make it, but with blocks.

We went on a family hike yesterday, and the weather was glorious! Lots of flowers and bees and gators splashing in the distance. I keep thinking that it will be too hot soon, but we keep having these lovely cold snaps of 60 degree days. Perfect hiking weather! We also had ham for lunch in honor of Easter Sunday, so there will be ham sandwiches to enjoy all week.
Everyone is eligible for be vaccinated in Florida now and lots of people are getting appointments. I see a vaccinated return to normalcy happening soon! I'd love to see a vaccine approved for the kids below 16. Maybe before school starts next year? It would be fabulous to ditch the mask and work on labs in groups again. At this point, I would just be over the moon to see all of my students in person again and give up on the Zoom synchronous sessions.

I am linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday and Oh Scrap! today. Be sure to drop by and check out handwork and scrappy projects.

I got a couple of blocks up on the blue wall. It is fun to switch over to a new month. There are so many blue scraps! I could do three months of blue and still not use them up. Dark blue will come back again and green-blue will get its own month, so that will help with not having to use up everything right now.
The sunrise was late this morning due to lots of clouds on the horizon. A cold front has moved in again and it is quite chilly. Sounds like a good reason to stay inside and start to fill up the blue wall.
