March....what I have been up to so far

A bit of what I am up to currently. I have been working on string blocks, started at my fall retreat, and pulled out last Sunday at our charity group sewing day, as a nice mindless project.
I cut 7 inch foundation squares, so they move right along. I prefer to press after I add two strips, so that takes more time. I have a stack of waiting quilt sandwiches, which I seem to be ignoring at the moment. Saturday I have a new project I am doing with online friends. By the time I wake up and have my coffee I imagine a few of them may be done! They either live in another time zone or are early birds- hey, it's my day off and unless I wake up early, I get up whenever. I am still in the process of gathering tax info to do three sets of tax returns. I always did my moms, and now that she is gone, I have inherited my aunts. So, I have that task hanging over my head. Spring is on it's way with lots of almost blooming daffodils in the backyard-the crocus are great in the front-at least the purple ones are up. I have packed up a quilt and sent it off to a friend to have BP fans done on it. I have a guild committee meeting tonight-bringing my lentil/barley soup as part of our potluck part of the meeting. I know that means I will get home too late to have energy to do anything quilty. Tomorrow night I am picking up LMAIW (Alice Wonderful) from daycare and babysitting until her mama gets back from a business trip. No matter how I feel when I get home, I need to pull fabric and get ready for the new project come Saturday morning. I am still mulling over which fabric to play with. oh, photo of ironing board-somewhere on blogland someone wanted that shared...guess I have a photo to share after all....hey, it's Thursday- almost Friday...enjoy your day!

Hi there! I've been thinking about you and wondering what you are up to. Busy, busy as always. I've also been thinking that we need to set a date for getting together since you won't be able to come to the PINS retreat.

Taxes, ugh! I sent all my paperwork to my BIL and just getting all that together is a pain. I don't know if he's going to do them after this year (he's done them for us for 18 years!) so I'm a little nervous about having to find someone else for 2008.

Cute hearts! I'm making progress getting my strings and hearts together but it's SLOW going.
