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---
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?????
"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????
Has anyone got an extra "kitty" I can borrow????

BRING ON THE FOOD---
AHHHHHHHHH---are we suppose to be doing something else--while all this other "stuff" is happening???????????????
Actually--this is what some of up should be doing today---
I am back from Mary's--and I have my "stash" all together--
Ok--got me some "fuel" off to the sewing room--
LOOK what I have gotten done--
then I needed to figure out how to do the next set of 4 blocks--
Now it is break time at 2:30 pm--time a piece of--
Keep sewing the day is young yet!!!!!
Ah--can I answer this question after this---
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 ---
And thanks to all who have visited today--I will be around tomorrow checking on finial progresses and some emails----
I really did it---here goes---
The last goal for the OPAM--last project--Two Lambs---Meet "Mary" and "Larry"--we are all made now and there will be "NO" little lambs--mom says!!!!
And here is the last goal for Charming Girls Club--to finish the Tisket/Tasket Blocks--
I got the last button trim sewed on at 5:00 pm tonight---Hurry for me!!! I was worried that I would not get them done today!!! and finish the Lambs too--But----
And here is my whole year's worth of Tisket/Tasket blocks made into door hangers for my apartment door--I am all set now!!!!
I even got a book finished last night--

But for us here in my area--we don't have nearly the snow that they are getting east and south of me---they have said more during the night, though--will see!!! and they are saying "snow" now through Sunday--so If I go missing--it may mean No power!!!
This truck came today with my Jelly roll for the new club---
This is the box---open it--Di
OK--stop being "funny" we want to see what you bought????
Ah--you are getting closer--but--
Yes--Di--you already told us you got a Jelly roll---
that's a little better---
even better--but we are still guessing---
AH--you didn't---you found a Jelly roll of Rural Jardin---how wonderful---now we can't wait to see your first block---and guess what???? Neither can "Di"!!!!!
You see the one piece of fabric under the roll---that is a yard of "caramel" broadcloth that I got to get the order up for the free shipping amount---but the wonderful part is that that piece was the most perfect color for these guys--
See the faces---I could of not gotten it any better if I had wanted to--infact I thought I had some fabric for the faces--but it was all wrong---and here came this piece--one-half hour before I started these guys---These "guys" have a story to tell you---
I did not get all I had wanted to do done today--yet I did work fairly steady--some times it just takes us longer that we plan--I guess!!!! (plus it takes longer when certain "guys" misbehave!!!!!)
OH here is another "favor" of Kleenex---called "kitten"!!!!!!

Once upon a time--like some time last year--Anne of Bunny Tales designed a bom with a basket in each block--and March's block had a bunny in it--
Anne loves bunnies---and so does one of her followers--Di!!
So when it came time to do the block and it being a March block--Di decided to do her's in pink--thinking about Spring and Easter being sooo close to St. Patty's day--right??
Di loves "pink" and it is such a pretty Spring color--that she made her's in pink---she got the block done and then put it away till the other blocks were ready.
Now in the mean time "Bunny" got bored in the closet--so as bunnies are of a mind to--she hopped around in the closet and "look" who she found---
a blue boy bunny!!!! Do you see where this "story" is going?????
And "as" these two bunnies were lonely--they feel in love---and---this is what happened--
We now have 4 baby bunnies and as "Di" did not want them wandering around getting into trouble--she "quickly" stitched them onto the green place mats she was making!!!
Isn't Di "a" fast thinker??????
Plus this means she has one more project done on her list---Just 2 more to go!!!
OH NO---they say "we" will finally get some of this "white--cold--wet" stuff tomorrow!!!
That's ok---I went to the store today and stocked up on the important "stuff"---
OH No---I think someone "found" one of my "rolls" pictures from yesterday's post????
I will "keep" the light on--
