Yes I know it is almost St Patrick's day, but in our house it isn't officially over till something happens. I finally got around to taking down the Christmas tree this weekend. So that means Christmas is officially over. It is in the box in the middle of the living room. But the alcove is cleared out now. That is all that matters.
My husband is doing great, got his last 4 out of 22 staples taken out today. He has at least 4 more weeks at home before being able to return to work. (Lucky him) I went back to work today after be off for the past 2 1/2 weeks........it sucked! I sooooooooooooooo want to be retired!!!! Someday. Anyways.............
Here is my new ironing board............HUGE! It is 23X75! Your probably wondering "Where in the world did she come up with that oddball size?" Well my office desk is made up of kitchen cabinets with drawers in them, with a plywood top. It use to be a corner desk, and just recently I made it all on one wall. So I needed a new top, didn't want to cut the old one in case I want to make it a corner again someday. So when I went and bought a new sheet of plywood, I had him ( the guy at the store) first cut the piece to length for my desk top, that gave me a 48X9 extra piece, then had him cut it to width, so I could have the biggest left over for an ironing board.:D It fits into my room good right now, but it is only sitting on top of the actual ironing board, and I want more stability, so I will probably be putting it onto a book case or something, still thinking how and where.....

Remember the god awful green on the snowman quilt???
Well I got rid of that.....
But that blue was waaay off too!
So I was on the No Fab Feb, and the Fabric Diet this month, remember??? Well I knew I was going to fall off for one day, just didn't know it was going to be this bad. I needed that green 1/4 yard in the top right corner, see it. I needed that for Block-A-Palooza quilt along. So I grabbed the pink too while I was there, well I started looking for some fabric for some backs of quilt, couldn't quite find what I needed, and the local quilt shop was having a fat quarter blow out sale, so I bought 60 of them!!!! OOOOPSSSS!Jethro said he likes them all, they feel great!
Then when I unrolled this beauty. I love these blue and white flowers, hubby grabbed these for me, I got 6 of them.
Ok now that it has taken me 2 hours to write this post, because the pics would not behave today. I am done and going to bed, no sewing for me tonight. Will make up for it tomorrow. I have 5 yes 5 BAP blocks to catch up on, and a layer cake block, 2 Dorinda mystery blocks, cut more for Raven Stars, Think about the Gayle Bong quilt, and make the back for the red and white quilt too. So something will get done tomorrow. Oh yeah, still stringy along with the RRCB, and those HST's are awaiting me too. No links to click on today, sorry. But the coordinating buttons are on the right.
