March... coming in like a lion :(

Do you remember the old saying, "If March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb"? This was concerning the spring weather, and it looks like weather this weekend will NOT be conducive to painting panties. 25 mph winds and a cold front will most likely postpone this paint party until another day, hopefully one with lots of sunshine and little or no wind.

For those glued to the blog to see the results of our spring fling I will apologize... I just don't feel like chasing underwear all over the hill-side at the camp. I may hang big drawers on a closeline for the world to see, but I DON'T want them to see me running up and down that hill trying to catch free-flying underwear. But we WILL do this sometime soon and I will post pictures as promised.

The good news....SIL RETREAT IS HERE! I plan on working on my Glorified 9-Patch. I have 99 blocks made, and 1 row constructed. I am hopeful that I can get the other 10 rows sewn together and perhaps even join them into the top... we will see.

The other project I have to do is to make some Wonder Wallets, by Lazy Girl Designs. These make wonderful gifts and are very quick to sew up. I have about 10 already cut out, interfaced, folded, and pressed. It will take about 5 minutes each to finish the sewing. I LOVE making these!

Enough blogging.... ON TO THE FUN!! I have to load my car with everything from my office chair to my sewing machine, every acrylic ruler I own, every type of notion (even if I don't think I'll need it, I want to share with my SILs) and of course, the food.

LET THE FUN BEGIN! Check back on Monday for pics and more info.

What puts joy in your heart? Take a few minutes today doing that, and then thank the One who gave you that ability. He is the Source for all good things.



  1. Can't wait!!!! for this afternoon - we can hang quilt projects from the clothes line instead of our undies.


  2. You prayed long and hard for windy weather didn't you????

  3. So sad there was no panty painting going on... but I am sure yall had a blast anyway.

    Can I put in an order for two wonder wallets??? Can I request the fabric I would like - not fabric, just colors really??


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
