UPDATE--SEW-IN--

OH MY--yesterday went soo fast---I thought I had planned an "easy" do-able project for the day----Wrong---but I did get alot of it done and I "did" stitch right up to the stroke of midnight---
I did not make it to my "rocking chair" til 10:30pm==then I did the applique on the rabbit block and like I said I got "her" done at midnight--went to bed-
then this morning when I went down stairs to my friend Mary's for her tea--I took all the blocks with me and laid them out on her floor for us "both" to see at the same time--as I had not seen it all together either?????
Well--there she is--and if this quilt does not spell
"S p r i n g" 
I will eat my "hat"!!!!!

Still have alot of work to do--have to take off the pinned on flowers for now and tact down the rick-rack--then sew the blocks together and decide on borders--then I will have to hand quilt it--Before I can add the flowers and their trims back on it---SOOO!!!

So now we all know what will be going on my Charming Girls/Guys challenge for March????

Think I will spend the rest of day under a quilt--sleeping--only now I need a kitten to help me with that job as I think I have forgotten how to do that---
Has anyone got an extra "kitty" I can borrow????
Hugs, Di

  3. How adorable!

    Please stop showing those kitten pictures, they make me want to run out and get a couple. I don't think my dogs would appreciate it. LOL!
