Do you ever have so many ideas in your head that you can't figure out what to do and then you don't do any of it? I have 2 quilts to finish and have started another two small projects which could turn into a mini quilt or pin cushions.... I have a baby quilt or baby items to make for Holly's teacher who is going on mat leave at the end of the month and now the school is looking for silent auction items and I am thinking about making another quilt! The thought of starting something new: trying out a new idea / theme/ technique / colour scheme is so exciting it is hard to keep on track and finish what I have started ! Ahhhh, so easily side tracked. Ok today I will work on finishing something I have started and then I can post a picture!
Next week is March break so we can look forward to trying out some recipes, one of the things we are going to make is the carrot cake recipe from America's test kitchen light recipes as the banana bread was such a star !

I have started with a block of the month project, with http://www.littlemissshabby.com/ and it has embroidery it is so cute .. check it out . I haven't done anything like this for a very long time and even then I only did a little cross stich. But with the internet for a reference tool I relearnt how to do the stitchs needed ( they are basic ones I might add) ,and went to work . I have caught up and finished Jan - Feb- and March . I am also working on a lap quilt for my grandma .
My swaps have been posted and I know that my mini was recieved and is loved. : ) I have to wait until this evening to pick up a package that is waiting for me ... it should be one of my swaps, I can't wait to see what I get ! I have been keeping tabs on our group to see who has recieved what and I have seen a several of the of my chosen 10 go but there are still two or three of my favorites left out there not been reported received yet ..ooh it is like Christmas.
