March Bee Blocks and ALYoF link up

I'm happy to say that I will not be tardy with my March Bee Blocks like I was last month...
Scrappy Sprout for F+F2
 I accidentally created a blue birdonkey by attaching the top of a bird to the bottom of a donkey and we all got a nice big chuckle out of it at SBAMQG Sew Day.
This shot of Twisted Tweet has made several appearances on the blog but here it is again for the official  March Goal completed linky party at A Lovely Year of Finishes (ALYoF) with this link to the original post when it was all just a pile of fabric. Yeah for me!

Haven't given much thought to the April goal for ALYoF link up but I suppose that I should.  My month for bee swapping is coming up and I need to run a test block to post.  I'm pretty sure I'll do the ever so popular X+ because it's been on my to do for forever.  What I haven't decided on are the parameters about fabric or color choice.  I may just go all scrappy!

My WIP for the week is further along than this sneak shown here but I don't want to spoil the surprise for my After Sewing Summit partner. Linking up to WIP with Lee at Freshly Pieced - check out her piles of HSTs and all the other link ups.
Absolutely no progress on the sewing room redo unless you count picking up room darkening drapes to protect my fabric from light damage once they are in the open bookshelves. 

Part of the distraction was that my sister is in town and we've had gorgeous mid-70s Spring weather hanging at the beach.  I was able to present her with the surprise Sisterly Love quilt - which she loved:)
