How about Once a Week?

I had made up my mind to  post several times a week this year but...I'm already behind! Between trying to get a head start on spring cleaning and actually doing some sewing my blog fell by the wayside. Here are some pics of what I've been doing.

The snowflakes were somewhat of a pain to applique but I do love ap-plique so it wasn't too bad, just time consuming.
Can you tell I like snowmen? The scarf is just glued at the neck so it will hang free. I fringed the ends also. This is for a log cabin challenge on one of my Yahoo groups. I call it Snowman in my cabin. The photo doesn't show it well but I found some wood grain fabric that was just perfect for the tree trunks. If you look hard you can see the freehand snowflakes that I did for the quilting. I added a little glitter to the trees to give it a more festive look.

Our snow has all disappeared thanks to warm temperatures and rain. Don't get me wrong! I am NOT complaining in the least!

Now I need to get busy on a little gift for a gift exchange. There are a few guidelines we have to follow. Everything has to fit in the smallest Flat-Rate box, one item we've made ourselves and we can fill the rest of the box with whatever. BUT, it can't exceed $10. So that has me thinking and thinking.

I'm also making a set of rooster placemats for my daughter-in-law. I'm just waiting for the background fabric to arrive. I found some of that cute chicken wire fabric to put behind the roosters. Now, for the back? I'm not sure at this point.

I've downloaded way too many ofl the fabulous free BOMS that are starting this month. I just can't resist!  I agree. It's a sickness of some sort!!

And a list buddy introduced me to Siggy Tags.  Oh what fun! Finding just the RIGHT graphic and adding your name. Now if I could just get those creative juices flowing and make my own graphics!

So that's what I've been up to the past few weeks. What about you?

Sunday Slumbers
Why is there only 24 hours in a day?
Why does it feel so cold when it rains and is really warmer?
Why is today so dreary?
Why don't we just run away to that deserted island in the South Pacific?
Why couldn't I have won that $390 million LOL?
