How is that for today--
let's start with the -- Cool one!!!
Last night after I got off the computer and walked past the table where the Full House Quilt was laying--
I looked at it and I was in 'love' with it ==just as it is--
can't explain it really--you know me I am always redoing and frogging something--
but I just feel that I am to leave this one as is--maybe cause it reminds me that none of us are perfect, but once the quilting is all done--you will not see any imperfections!!!
PS--went downstairs with the quilt this morning and found a neighbor to hold it up so you can see all of it!!!

Now--Happy Dance--

As I got up this morning and was getting breakfast ect--
It hit me how to do the blocks on the other panel that goes with this line--
so after alittle hand quilting and the normal housework thingy's--
I got into the sewing room and this is what I came out with--
Now I realize that the tan blocks look empty--
but I also realized that I have some neat stencils for quilting that I never get to use cause all my quilts are so busy with busy blocks--so this way I can do a fancy design in these tan 'unbusy' blocks!!!!
I also have the next border all figured out and cut--but no more time today to work on it--
with this 'crazy 15 challenge' still going on!!!

and Third was some 'yummy' mail--
got an order in today--
Some Schnibbles patterns that I do not have--
a jelly roll -this was on sale for $16.??-- and I did not have any of this line--
I love the pinks and tans, but am not crazy about the yellows with the pinks--
duhhhh---I realized that I can take the yellow ones out and use them else wheres--
especially for that price!!!!
and a nice assortment of half yard cuts--
so now I have even less shelf space--
am I crazy or what--
( the or what -- is that I like 'sales'!!!!!)

And I did get a nice start on Crazy 13th stitchery--
what I won't tell you is that I started it about 12:30 am!!!
gotta do something when one can't sleep!!!
course there was alot of frogging it seemed on this one--
and I got a longs to go on it!!!

We got a little snow last night--just ground covering--with lots of rain before hand--
so the biggest problem is the ice--
and it is getting way cold tonight and is suppose to stay that way alllllll week end--
so guess where I hope to be and what I hope to be doing????

Tomorrow ===
remember is the day to work on preparing or planning some of your Valentine projects--
are you ready????

Hugs, Di and a sleeping Miss Gracie
