March Madness Update


Breaking news March 24th 2013: Great jobs U of Memphis Tigers in the NCAA tournaments.

Just seeing these daffodils makes me happy. Just when they started to bloom we had a cold spell .

I have enjoyed reading the Farmers Almanac. Brings back memories of when we would purchased one at a store called A. Schwab in Memphis when I was a child.
 I purchased a copy of this one at Family Dollar for $5.95

                                 And this one at the Hernando library for $1.00.
What's  fun about the Almanac is what they predict about the weather. Here is the prediction for my zone here in Tennessee
What do you think about the association of gardening with your zodiac sign?
I am surprised at the things I didn't know. If you ever find yourself longing for simpler times get a copy of the almanac. You will love the wit and wisdom on gardening, cooking weather, remedies, and more.
Welcome spring, it's only 3 days away.

Mad about March

March has been  exciting  so far. And I have a feeling it is going to last . Started out by going to see “Quilters A Musical”  a play about a pioneer woman and her 6 daughters unified by quilting, and afterwards a wonderful dinner with friends.

I am pumped up and ready to watch the NCAA basketball tournaments. Sunday was the official start of March Madness .  I will be keeping up with the teams from now through April while sewing.

Sew wise February was a great month for early morning sewing. Usually don't get around to sewing until early afternoon so early morning sewing was a plus for putting a dent in my projects.

Made fabric for the boheannie hand bag.  You can see the pattern over here  I received a lovely “peace, love, and all things groovy necklace” in the mail from Annie.  Will wear  it when I carry my handbag and may even try my hand at some peace earrings.  The birthday cards, calls, and gifts keep coming and that makes me happy.


Good progress on the “Rainbow” baby quilt for the girlfriend grand baby due April 10. Need a border and then on to quilting. Will include the triangles in the border.


Number 7 of 12 blocks I am making to go in a Christmas quilt.


And then the tea towel for the tea towel medallion quilt . This is a must finish by March 29th and I am 3/4 done.

Gosh I have a finish that I almost forgot. A sofa quilt for cuddling while  watching TV. Made from the "top draw' fabric line  and it is a beauty.

Quilters a Musical

Enjoyed this  play  about a pioneer woman and her 6 daughters unified through Quilting.

Each story is reflected in a quilt block.
Everything about the play was impressive from the  acapella songs, costumes, wood plank stage to  the story lines. A few of my favorite story lines, "I don't have time to get old, too many things to do, and " piecing is orderly".

This was absoutely a beautiful evening that kicked off my birthday celebration .

Have a great week.
Peace, love, and art,
