SPRING SEW-IN TIME

I AM READY---

BRING ON THE FOOD---
THE ENTERTAINMENT---
THE JOKES---
MORE FOOD--
THE MOVIES--
THE POPCORN--
MORE FOOD--
AHHHHHHHHH---are we suppose to be doing something else--while all this other "stuff" is happening???????????????

OK I am up and-----but I am not sure I am with it today--too much "month" before today---if you know what I mean!!!!!

Actually--this is what some of up should be doing today---
Outside--building snowmen---but---instead---DRUM ROLL--please--we are going to do one of our very favorite things----SEW and EAT!!!!

I am back from Mary's--and I have my "stash" all together--
OPPS---wrong picture--though I could use that all chocolate donut right about now???
OK--now this looks a little more like "Di's" stash---of goodies!!!!!
Well--here we go===here is some of my plans so far---
this quilt is going to be all my own design--so who knows what king of "mess"---NO--creative mess--I will create!!!
AND--drum roll please--it is noon and I have ONE block done!!!  Hey I am on a roll here!!!!!
LUNCH TIME---

Ok--got me some "fuel"  off to the sewing room--
LOOK what I have gotten done--
First I was worried that I had "planned" this block wrong and I would have to make a smaller quilt--but it turns out they were too big--no problem there--got out one of those special rulers we all collect and squared it up to my 8 1/2 block!!
I need  4 of these---now does this not spell---'SPRING"????
then I needed to figure out how to do the next set of 4 blocks--
Now if you could of seen how I did these--you would probably shake your head--but it worked for me and now I have--
four of these blocks--one more to go--
And this is the center block--see my "chocolate" bunny??????

Now it is break time at 2:30 pm--time a piece of--


Keep sewing the day is young yet!!!!!

UPDATE--
What are "you" up to now -- DI??????
Ah--can I answer this question after this---
Nap time for Di----

UPDATE---

I am ready to get back to work--after I put on my "fannel nightgown"--I still have some work I want to do on this new creation--and maybe now that all is quite here I can do that!!!!

It sure has been a "fun" day again and I want to say a great big ---
to--Kelly and Joan for hosting this Spring Sew In--even if we all are snow covered--it has been warm inside working on our new spring "outfits"!!!!

And thanks to all who have visited today--I will be around tomorrow checking on finial progresses and some emails----
Hugs, Di

I am liking what I see. You just keep right on creating. I don't know any jokes. I am bad about getting them told the way they should be anyhow.

Hi Di, what great fun this is, love your quilt and can't wait to see what all you'll get done on it. I had to take a break for fuel too. Gilled chicken sandwich, no chips, how sad. Well I'm off to sew.
Keep Stitchen'
