Well Spring break started for my grandson today!

We have him for an entire week....and I go an get sick! He told me tonight I need to get better so we can go shopping, LOL I told him I know! He is 7 and in the first grade.

I recently signed up for some bitty block swaps and a mini-quilt swap I have my ideas ready to go and I just need to feel better now. I think I will try to get started on my sweets becasue I have some hand sewing to do on them as well. I may as well do that while I am staying in my bedroom so I do not infect Dear husband and grandson. I would hate it if they caught this even though Devin's little sister & my daughter gave it to me. I should have been more careful but it is so hard not to love on your kids and grandkids!

I am so excited about the swaps coming up! The ladies in the groups are so incredible talented... I was just amazed and knew I had to be part of this group. few of hte ladies are Wizard of Oz nuts to! I though I was the only one! LOL at leaqst that is what my husband says cause I watch the movie over and over again! At least 3 times a year minimum. Last year one of the station had a marathon going on all day it was awesome!

More later not sure if I can post pictures of my blocks on here while the swap is going on so you will have to wait until I am sure it is okay to post them. Later friends!

March is here does that mean spring is closer?

You bet it does! I am getting so excited to! We have to get through the March Madness of Basketball first then it should get nicer. I can't wait to open my windows and see some flowers.

Tomorrow I plan to go shopping at Joann's for their coupon commotion sale...I need some fun buttons for a project I am working on.

Have you heard of a mug rug? They are basically a large coaster for a cup of jo & a cookie or snack. I am going to make my co-workers one and surprise them in teh mail and not say who they are from! Hehe! Should I put secret admirer on them or guess who? I love to surprise people. I have another surprise up my sleeve but I can't say what it is because the person I am going to surprise may read this!

I got a lot to do yet on some other projects to so the remainder fo the day tomorrow will be a sewing day for me...Yippee!
