Hello, Monday, What time is it?

Encouraging Words of the Day:
The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him will all my heart. He helps me and my heart leaps with joy. I burst out in songs of Thanksgiving.

Monday, thank you Lord for another week.  We just changed to Daylight Saving Time so I don’t really know what time it is.  How can ONE little hour make so much difference for crying out loud?

 I had a productive weekend.  I started two projects on Saturday for the "March Christmas 2011 Quilt-Along."    I didn’t finish either one on Saturday but did finish the "241 Tote Bag" on Sunday.  It was not hard to sew although somewhat tedious.  I like it so much that I will make another one.

I also did a little crocheting since I needed to finish an afghan I am making for my niece’s graduation.  When I’m not hand-sewing on my hexies or “My Jane” blocks, I crochet on our road trips.  So I just needed to finish this up.

The mail brough my March mug rug from my partner in "A Year of Rugs."  Christina says you doesn’t sew yet so sent a crochet mug rug. 
 Thanks, Christina,  for the cute Shamrock mug rug.

Meanwhile, I too am wondering, what has happened to “My Jane,” and “My Swoon,” and. . .  UFOs in the making!

Planting an idea:  My sister from "My sister made me do it,." with a little persuasion, and I are planning a fabric swap .  We’ll let you know what’s going on soon.

"adventures in fabric" is giving us the opportunity to win a charm pack. - ends March 14th.
That is all.
