Completed Projects

I finally had time to download two of my latest completed projects.  The quilt is Bonnie Hunter's mystery from November 2009 called Carolina Christmas.  It was supposed to have borders but I was done cutting and sewing fabric.  As it is so big anyway I  figure it just didn't matter.

The crochet afghan is for Shaylie Jo.  My granddaughter who is making her entrance to the world 4/21/2011.  I will get a quilt made for her and have the pattern picked out.  I just have not had the time to work on it with everything going on.  A ball of yarn and hook is so much easier to cart around than a box of quilt notions, fabric etc....

March Rain

OMG.......will the rain ever stop?  But then again, rain is much better than snow at the moment.  My heart goes out to all of those in areas where rain is overflowing into their personal spaces.  The Scioto River runs through Columbus and suburbs so depending on where one lives depends on how safe your home is.  I think my sump pump is running on overtime.

I am not sure where last month even went but March is here and roaring like a lion on steroids.  The middle child who had the disc surgery is back to work and doing well.  The oldest who has the broken leg is doing so so.  He is in good spirits but tired of being laid up and I cannot say I blame him.  Thanks to all of you who sent out prayers.

March has brough a lovely little weight loss for me.  The thyroid is FINALLY at a controllable level.  I started attending Weight Watchers meetings as it is a program that works, for most, if you follow it.  I dabbled in the program before but was not successful as I was never in the mind set to stick with it NOW I am...yeah and I am down 14 pounds!!!!

No quilts have been finished.......oh wait, the Carolina Christmas did so I will have to get the pics loaded for viewing.  The crochet baby afghan is done....so much more portable to drag to the kids than my quilt projects.  My knitting has been perfected, thanks to my dear friend Denise Hall...........I would not have been able to do it if not for her.  I have two projects going.........OMG I will now have yarn UFO'S ...oh no!!!

Will post some pics and more details later.

Sleep and sew well my friends.
