Computer Down, Sew Sweet Bee and Quilting

Hello sweet Chickadee's.  
Thank you so much for all your sweet comments on my last post.  Happy Belated Easter.
My internet service has been touch and go.  David has been trying to get it to work.  We need a new modem, so we called Dish and they sent us a Hopper.   We called them back and hopefully today or tomorrow we will have a new modem.  Then maybe I can start visiting you again.

This month it is sweet Heather's turn to request a block in our bee.  She asked for a pin wheel with cherries or strawberries.  This is the pin wheel block I sent her.  Hopefully she has received  it by now and likes it.  Heather makes the sweetest vintage items.  You really must pay her a visit at Vintage Grey.

On Monday's I have been working at the local quilt store a couple of towns away Quilters Cottage.  This is the little panel I quilted for them.  Isn't just the sweetest.

I am just loving the back.  All I have left is to sew on the binding  and sew it down.
My quilt machine has been buzzing in the last few weeks.  It has been so much fun.  The next quilt to go on the frame is a Quilt of Valor.  These quilts give me so much joy knowing that the are going to someone that is serving in our armed forces protecting us and our freedoms.  

Our weather has been so nice.  I am thinking I should set up a picnic for lunch?  
Hope you are enjoying this lovely day as well.
