This is an all points bulletin...I'm looking for the month of March...where in the heck did it go? How can it possibly be approaching the time when we flip the calendar page? If anyone finds the month of March, please let me know...I could really use a few more days...LOL!
I've been really bad about posting...Andy was gone all last week...silly boy went to Pennsylvania to see his two brothers and to see some friends. Yes, Florida boy went to Pennsylvania and froze his little fanny off. There was snow, there was ice...he was happy his rental car had heated seats...he was very, very happy to be home...he had a wonderful time seeing everyone but I don't think he'll be making that trip again in March.
I really took advantage of his time away and got lots done...I sewed from morning until late into the night...only stopped to walk the boys, give them their meals and feed myself. I only left the house one time to get my hair cut...you know you can move mountains if you don't have to leave the house. My neighbors all think I'm a hermit, but you know what...I'm OK with that...I'm thrilled with what I got done.
I got two more Web Sampler blocks done and I got my finishing kit all cut out and ready...I think I'll be doing some of the filler blocks and maybe starting to put together the center section...I'm very happy that we've moved the finishing date until July 1st though
...these blocks are very intense...lots of pieces...challenging but fun.
I got some Civil War Diary and Love Letters blocks done...I am way, way behind but I'm having lots of fun doing these blocks. I don't know how many blocks I'm going to do...I don't know what I'm going to do with them when I decide I'm done...but I'm sure enjoying the process and I guess that's all that matters.
These blocks are top left: Lonesome Place (p.221 CWLL) top right: Games, Music and Knitting (p.117 CWD) bottom left: John Morgan (p.145 CWD) bottom middle: Mail Delivery (p. 85 CWD) bottom right: Soldier's Box (p. 199 CWD)
I did some other blocks for swaps and I got the binding on a quilt that I did last year and just didn't get around to getting the binding done. I want to put this quilt on the guest room bed since spring is here, so it needed to be finished. Well as you can see, I had some help. Zack was watching me the whole time I was stitching this on, as soon as I finished and it fell to the floor, he saw his opportunity and went for it. Zack's seal of approval!
I also finished the first section of the Four Seasons Block of the Month from Country Loft...it sure was fun to get this section together...I'm ready for the next section, it should be arriving soon and I'm caught up...YIPPEE!
We had a quiet Easter...went to Mom's for brunch...and came home and watched NCAA basketball...we love March Madness. Took mom a plate of cookies for Easter
...and were they yummy. They were from a recipe that Nicole over at Raggedy Old Annies posted back in December. If you love M&M's you'll love these cookies.
Well, if you stuck with me through this whole, long post thank you...I promise I'll try to post more regularlly, not leave 2 weeks between posts and then they won't have to be so darn long...have a great evening everyone.
