THE COLOR IS GREEN--

For the month of April --for our block--
and I had to do some hunting--
but was able to get them all from my stash!!!
I have very little fabric in green greens--
I use mostly ivy color greens!!!!
but do like how this block came out--
and my new Easter Bunny helped me display for you!!!


And then me and the frog became friends for the afternoon--
and we frogged the last strip that came out too short--
row by row--
then as I frogged each block--out here in the rocker--
I would take it to the sewing machine and stitch it back together again!!!
Why--needed some walking steps on the 'meter' today!!
and when done--it now looks like this--
Yes-- all three are now the right length---
I had discovered when I did the green block that my needle position had gotten moved and was therefore giving me a larger seam allowance than the 1/4"--go figure!!!


So two projects for this month are done--
then later this afternoon I got the cross stitch out for getting things ready for the Christmas ornament for April--
and this is the one I picked!!!
but also discovered that I had to do an order for more 28ct cloth--done!!!!
Oh I love to shop on the Internet!!!!!

And then I worked on this project--
getting some 'prize' gifts ready to mail for the "most comments winners" in January!!!
I am slow--and that is just me--I have decided--but hopefully gals these will be in the mail tomorrow!!!!

And here is what I have been working on since Sunday--
I filled these 2 notebooks with all the pages that I stealrip from my magazines!!!

and--
there is just pretty pictures on some pages--
some are information pages I want to look back on --
some are decorating ideas that I have been saving for along time--
they are all in pages now and I have created my own--coffee table books--
they are not 'organized' yet by category's--that is next years project--
we don't want to get too organized all in one year-now do we??????
Hugs, Di and miss gracie
