WORKIN ON AN OLD ----

When I was looking for something the other day--
in my 'UFO' drawer--
I pulled out the dresses that I started
2 years ago for the color of the month--
Remember these????
Most of these are my own design and all are appliqued--
I got the last 4 designs done--
and then it all got put away--
so--
I spent some time yesterday checking the pattern's
picking fabrics and ironing on the pattern pieces
for these last 4 blocks--
and this morning between, Danny and Mac coming--(it's Tuesday)
I got  them traced and even the green one cut out
and laid out on the block and a couple stitches in it!!!
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

and I am still working on the hearts --
am doing all 42 charm squares this time--so still have a few more to stitch--
then I may sent them to NY to Anne for a hospice quilt or as she likes blues,
 she can make herself a quilt with them!!!
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

And I have been busy knitting--
and have already made 2 baby sweaters with that new batch of yarn!!!
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

And for this project--
I did decide to put away the Fall one--
( I did get all the ABC letters in that one--)
but am putting it away and stitching the Summer one for now-
yesterday the rest of the threads came in--so started one letter today--
to see if I like the new blue thread--it is darker than the first one--
but it could be a bit darker--but I am going to use this one--
it is so hard to really tell the shades of threads online, isn't it????

ENJOY SOME SUNSHINE TODAY 
                    AND SMILE-DI
