Epcot Spring Flower and Garden Festival 2014

March is a wonderful time of year in central Florida, jam-packed with fun activities. The hardest part for us is deciding what to do.  Last weekend we welcomed Spring with a visit to the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. 

Between the topiaries, the Outdoor Kitchens (aka mini Fall Food and Wine Fest) and demonstrations, we filled the entire day just visiting the activities associated with this event

Karen Nyberg's Space Quilt Challenge

Anyone who's read this blog for any length of time (minutes count) knows that I'm a fan of being crafty as well as of the space program. From time to time, I find that these two interests intersect in delightful ways.  Along with the subtle justification of having a nutty blog like this, it's fun to connect with others who share these interests.

Astronaut Karen Nyberg recently returned to earth after an extended stint aboard the International Space Station. A veteran astronaut, she traveled with a few of her supplies and fit in crafting time between orbits. Now back on Earth, she's offered fellow crafters the chance to participate in a fun quilting challenge.  One of her space-created blocks will be joined with blocks from those submitted and will be on display at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Blocks must be star-themed and the square should be 9.5", which will be 9" when paired with the rest of the submitted blocks. Submissions are due August 1st, 2014.

Are you up for the challenge? Check out my Pinterest board for some inspiration. As if we need an excuse to spend time on Pinterest. :)
