I finally got in some time to work on some projects---
but first--
I did get another block done on the 'Gardner's Journal' quilt!!
I love this block--I think it looks alittle like me--
from the rear-end view!!!!!!!!!!!lol

After a day spent shopping--
I am usually in some pain and very tired--
so I did not "stress" myself by sitting alot of goals--
as the body felt like doing something we did it--
if not we stitched--
and I got 2 whole blocks stitched for the SAL---
for 'Tis the Season'--
I just wished there was alittle more red in the strands of thread--
but "oh well"--
I am using a new thread to me--
Threadworx--100% cotton--overdyed floss--
and I have decided to do them all in this I had to go shopping again today!!!
but didn't have to leave home to do it--
I ordered this thread--(and for some reason--some other colors are coming with it!!)
at they have all kinds of threads and things--so be sure to check them out--and they where very "timely" with my first order--so----!!!!

I won't bore you with the little details of the "other" work I did!!!
You know like cleaning out kitty litter box--washing dishes--taking out the garbage--cleaning off the table--ok!!!!

Here is Miss Gracie--she is getting ready to count all my sewing projects!!!!
Not really she is getting ready to settle down in my chair--
to keep it warm for me while I am on the computer---
well---I really think she sleeps here while I am on the computer so she can keep an "eye" on me--she is afraid I might do something with out here knowing it!!!

Well--I need to go find a jelly roll--
a fabric kind --gals---I think I have decided which fabrics I want for the gardners blocks--only I am having problems finding it to buy it--yet I know I have seen it on line--oh where == oh where have you gone my fabric!!!!

PS it is still really cold here--but I know--I know that spring is coming--someday--somewhere!!!!
