    AJ ~ Good job finish up the embroidery. They must be lovely. Can you show us a picture before they get wrapped up?

    I'll be working on CCS and knitting this week and trying to get to the studio to work on the owls, letter and pillows. Plus, I'll probably get sidetracked as other inspiration hits!

    This week I would like to finish up the Easter dresses for DGD and her dolly. They just need the hand sewing part to finish them up. Than on to some sewing and knitting for me.

    I will get a pic of the sheet sets before wrapping for sure! I was just thinking about that this morning! :)

    Finished two felt Meade notebook covers:

    Have one more to do that is teacher themed and then 2 more for Christmas gifts this year. They are going so quickly that I am tempted to use the 3 teacher ones for teacher appreciation week gifts and then make 3 more for next school year's teacher/aides for Christmas!

    Also itching to get started on first of 7 felt sunglasses cases - I need to get on the ball and pick out my designs!!! Once I have that part done it goes quick!

    AJ ~ Lovely notebook covers. They will definitely bring joy to the recipients. Your felt work is impressive.

    I finished the Easter card fronts yesterday and posted pictures on my blog. In a few minutes, I hope to post pictures of the basket I made. I forgot to take a picture of the gift I sent to DD for her birthday, but asked her to take one for me.

    I also finished the week 10 installment of the blackwork anemone SAL and started on the March owl CCS.

    Thanks, DJ! You are rockin' it with your projects! Maybe we're like the maple trees - in the spring our crafting "sap" starts to run! lol

    Thank you, Lucie!!!!

    Forgot to mention that I went to JoAnn's yesterday and got a GREAT deal on Cricut mats - buy one pack get one free - was quite happy. Did my usual stalking of the various clearance areas and ended up scoring a large amount of cardstock and printed papers, various sizes for either $0.07 or $0.12 each!

    Even snagged a couple of too cute teacher/school themed papers I will use for making cards for teacher appreciation week!

    And a 14" Wilton pizza pan for $6.47 - all because I just read a tart recipe that I want to try and it called for a 14" pizza pan - it must be destiny!!!

    AJ, the notebook covers will be appreciated for sure.
    Dahlia, you always have such cute cards and your basket looks like you are a professional! Was that difficult to do?
    Lucie, your garland would go perfect with the bunnies on my mantel.
    Saturday my cousin and I attended the sewing expo in Cleveland. We took the pattern alteration class which was excellent. It was 3 hours, non stop and both learned a lot. i did some shopping, buying Christmas fabric, that I'm sure I don't need.
    I finished one test block for my quilt. Otherwise I've been looking after Myron who spent Sunday night in the animal hospital. Once he's feeling better I'll get back to work.

    Lucie ~ You did a great job with the garland; and it looks wonderful hung on your mantle.

    Myron's Mom ~ The basket really wasn't that hard. The class went from 9-2, so it took a while, but the instructor gave very clear directions and was easily accessible for one-on-one when needed. I want to do more! Glad you got good tips in your pattern alteration class! You can't have too much fabric … especially Christmas fabric!

    I ended up frogging the afghan and starting again. Working from a chart is definitely a learning experience for me!

    Lucie. Garland is cure.

    Have gotten the dresses finished and the two socks I was working on frogged. All Easter craft along with a Christmas UFO and April cards plus bookmark pictures are on my blog.

    DJ if you are finding that following a chart is a little too much could you write out the instructions?

    Rose ~ Congratulations on your accomplishments! Great projects. I could write out the pattern, but I'm challenging myself to learn to follow the chart. Kathy loaned me a magnetic board to help. I'll try it out tonight.
