Digging into February

Can you believe we have a month of 2017 under our belt already! I am really starting to hit the age where time flies. Gosh, if I could give a penny for every time I thought the day would never end as a kid. Anybody hear the choir a'preachin? It's one of the amazement that I see daily for kids. I realize that they can't see the importance of cherishing what you have at the moment and live for the moment. I sure do now though. Of course being in charge of myself does have its bonuses!!

Anyhoo, I have quite the month. I have two friends that I need to make some baby items for. One is a girl to be named Violet. Doesn't that just scream for something in the pinky - violet tones? The other is a boy, and the baby room's theme is Dr. Suess. I know I want to make at least one quilt, but really should do two. I might even just do a fleece back since fleece is super cheap now. Hmmmm. ideas... ideas.

Next, I want to get a one of my flimsies made into a quilt. I participated in Bonnie Hunter's leaders and enders challenge for lozenges a couple of years ago. The top has been completed for a really long time. I think its time for it to be my OMG project for February. I don't care for the bigger blocks that I used to make it longer, so I need to rethink that. I am thinking I might just do a 2 inch border in the gold and then do the binding in the navy.


Like I said, digging out, but in a fun way!
