Needing to get back into my creative groove!

I had a lot of fun buying fabric last week.  Now I need to get to work!
I've had  a lazy month in April, recovering from a bunch of stressful ones.  I think I deserved to take a break, enjoy living with my family together again, and not working as much.  However, now I need to get back to it!  My goals this week? 
-make a dress for M (I got the fabric and pattern a month ago and it's sat in the laundry room since then!)
-start on L/E's baby blanket 
-bring the bed downstairs and have a real bedroom again! (Grandma's been encouraging us to do this from the start so it's about time!)
-make mother's day presents before we leave for Colorado next week
-only one lunch out with M (don't judge me on this one, it's too easy to grab a sandwich when your toddler's best errand running time is right around lunch!)
We'll see how we do.  In the meantime, here's some of my inspiration!

fabric for the new baby's blanket
this one's for me-not sure what I'm going to do with it but it's so pretty! and cherries!  how could i resist???
This is for M's dress. I'm halfway there and hopefully will be done before too long!

Love all the fabric. LOVE LOVE the fabric for M's dress. It makes me wish I had a little girl!!!

I'm excited to see what you create. You have got to post it on here when you are done.

I just got a darning foot so I can try some free motion quilting. I am kind of excited about it. And I have been buying fabric on ebay... it is too addicting. I have to stop.

So when did you get your masters at USU? The Dr. L I referred to is actually Dr. Larsen. He is new as of about 3 years ago. Dr. Laws is still there, though crazy as ever.
