OH MY WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE??

I 'mean' it can't have been this long since my last post--
and the sad part is--
I don't have alot to show for all that time--

Just today though--
a little bit ago at that--
I went from where these socks where --
From yesterdays knitting--
to--
they are now ready to mail out-
to Anne--
they look funny--but it is just the way the camera shot the photo!!!!
there is alot of knitting hours in these let me tell you--
and my left shoulder is letting me know about it!!!!!!!!!!

I also recently got another baby sweater finished--

and yesterday I did take my fabric closet apart and straightened things out--
was looking for cat fabrics--which I did find--only I don't have as many as I thought--
so one must keep that in mind when ordering other fabric---right????

I also did make a pile of possibilities on the table--
for the last Christmas block--hopefully this will get stitched in the next couple days--
but first--
I am still 'thinking' about how I want to make the 'cat' tote bag for Anne's birthday--
hope to be able to get that package in the mail on Tuesday--then it will be back to my regularly scheduled crazy days!!!

Have been going down to the dock nearly everyday and doing some extra walking so have some neat nature photos I will be posting over on my other site--so stop by there!!!

WHICH ONE ARE YOU???

IN PIECES

I spent alot of time today--
with this little guy in my hands--

My favorite 'best friend' sent to me by a best friend Alice along time ago--
we have 'removed' many stitches together--
and today it was in my hands working hard for 3 hours-yep--3 hours!!!

Remember we left off on Friday I think with this project--
we had 3 rows done--
and on Saturday--
I actually got the last 2 rows done and it all stitched together and--
I also got the next small outer border ready--
BUT--
 then I would get the 'willy's' every time I walked by it--
it just was not a happy camper and it kept shouting at me--
"My lattice blocks are too dark and distracting--so you don't even notice all the work in the actual blocks"--Do something about it--now!!!!!

So by this morning I knew I had to do something about it--
so I could stop the "shouting" going on around here--
and I sat down with the
and the quilt --
and now this is what I have---
strips of the lattice--
and a pile of --
blocks---
and No idea where this project will go next????????????
I spent alot of money on that pile of fabric for the squares--
but they just don't seem to go--
been online looking at other fabric--still nothing is shouting at me that they are the right ones!!

So what did you do with your day--????

AN UNUSAL DAY

Here in my area of Florida--
 we got up to grey skies--
and they have pretty much been that way all day--
during the night we had some rain--
and we had T-storms and more rain this afternoon--
we just don't have very many 'grey' days all day!!!
But--
I can sew whether it is sunny or grey!!!!

I did look at this block this morning--
and decided it too had something missing--
so--
off I went looking for them--
and as right now--my apt is full of them --
I found a couple right off--
(dust bunnies)
so two of them hopped right up there in the patch of flowers!!!!

and we got another row stitched together today--
so we are 'buzzing' right along here--
just 2 more rows to go,with, some of the stitching  done on the next row!!!

Another package came in the mail today--
an all blue charm pack for Anne--
Blue is her favorite color!!
Would love one of these myself!!!!!!
some blue Grunge fabric--
another blue snowflake fabric--
and--
a couple yards of white fabric--
now I will be 'bored' the rest of the month--
no packages to look forward getting in the mail--!!!!

and  bit of a mystery--
see this package--???
I think I have a 'mouse' or a really hungry fairy lives here--
I swear I just open the package and it is gone--
and I know that I only eat '2' of them a day-(really)
but everytime I go to the cupboard --the package is empty!!!!!!??????

Hey--I just realized it is-
Soooooooo--
and make some memories--

            ENJOY THE MOMENTS-DI

OK-PLAN C

First thing today (after doing my walk on the trail and going down to the dock to knit--and laugh at the squirrels)
I decided to finish cutting the strips that go around each Bee block--
Now--to back track a bit--
Plan A--was not doing this step--
but then decided to go for it-
Plan B was using the cream with the little black designs--
so I preceded  to cut-
and horror's--
am short of fabric for 2 blocks--and it is an old print--
soooo==
Plan C--out came one of the prints that I auditioned yesterday--
the cream one with tiny green dots--
Now I also could of taken out 4 blocks and not done all 5 rows--
but just had a  hard time picking out 4 to leave out--
so now the plan is to alternate the green dot border rows--
so 2 rows will be green dot and the other 3 will be the cream and black!!

But look what I also discovered when I was laying them out to pick out the 4--
Can you spot the problem????
Look at the wood signs!!
See I missed doing some embroidery on the second sign--
the good news is---
it is finished now and all ready to go into the next row on the quilt!!!

I also got a order in the mail today--
I ordered some fabric for my friend Anne--in NY--
She will love this one--am planning on making her a tote bag with these two--
and these 2 will be gifts for her to do something with--
She makes alot of dog and cat quilts--I think she will like this one--
and she loves loves birds too--
I have wanted this panel for  ever--
and I know she will really love this one-
the good news is--the panel is long and has double photos on it--
so guess who will finally gets some tooooo!!!!

and I needed a new background fabric for a project --
so got this one for me--
but do have a couple other's of this type coming in on another order--
so we will see--

           ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI

I love the look on this cat's face!!!
Hey, Dad what are you doing under there????
