I have a number of entries I'd like to do, that really should have a picture to go with them. I think I'll give you the synopsis today, and try for pictures over the coming week.
The exercise ladies who contributed squares to the "Share a Square" project came to the house yesterday afternoon to work on assembling two afghans. We have to edge each block with black crochet, and then sew 48 of the blocks together, and crochet around the entire edge. Yesterday we managed to edge 48 of the blocks. We meet again in a week, and will probably have to meet once more. My table is covered with a rainbow of blocks edged in black!
I found batik fabric for pillowcases when I was in Florida. I saw a case, and fell in love with it. My "souvenir" was the fabric for two of the cases. I found an excellent pattern on-line. I could have winged it, but it was nice to have a pattern for back-up. I'll post a picture of the finished project soon, I hope.
This coming week is personal tax week for me. My sister-in-law does Elegante Mother's taxes, but I need to mail the information off to her. Then, I need to answer the planner from my CPA, gather information from Quicken, collect the 1099s and such, and send that package off. My CPA will be ASTONISHED if I get them to her by March 15th. She's busy completing the company tax packages
Tomorrow, Elegante Mother and I are going to a nursery for an early planting day. They will provide plants and soil and the additives for the containers. We bring containers and choose which plants we want, and spend some time planting them. The nursery will keep them until mid-May, when it's warm enough to put them out, and we will have mature (well, maturing), arrangements. I'll take pictures tomorrow, and pictures when we set them out. I figure it's a way to get our hands in the dirt, and assuage the need for Spring.
Quilting Bee meets tonight. I'll be crocheting, rather than quilting, but they won't mind. One of our members will be away, helping to hang quilts for a quilt show. I hope that I'll get to see that show on Sunday afternoon. (Note: This is another way to ignore that Spring is not yet here. A quilt show is always a good diversion!)
Monday the cat has his annual visit to the vet. Tuesday, EM and I are taking lunch to a friend who broke her ankle in February. Thursday is EM's salon appointments and a Share a Square afternoon. Saturday is a perm, and so on and so on. I'm going to have to start working in the office at night, to get caught up.
I hope you are all "weathering" the end of winter well. I know Bogie is longing for green, and Joy is looking for a cessation of white. I'm ready to be able to go out doors without having to put on my coat!
Have a great weekend!
