Racing the clock....

the minutes are ticking away rapidly now...only 6 minutes left to make one more post in March *VBS* I'm sorry to report I have NO March finishes for One Project a month challenge. I did take time,today, to sew. This project was close 'at hand' and I made bowties for the quilt that this will become. Not quite enough to finish it, but progress. I also joined up the 12 rows of Mile A Minute blocks I pieced last month. I'll snap a picture of that top tomorrow.
 The official ONE YEAR picture of Baby L...my goodness but this first year went fast. The year was made more exciting by the fact that he was the first of 3 grandbabies born into the family during his first year. Him, last February, my first granddaughter Hailey Marie in July and now Baby A this February. The ranks are swelling! And I love it *VBS*
 Last but now least, a snap of the rug in progress. Jean, of Southern WI asked about the rugs. If you will scroll down a bit, Jean, there is a tutorial on the right sidebar about how to get started making the crocheted rugs and how to prepare the fabric, etc. If you have more questions than it answers, drop me an email and I'll help you get started. I spoke with DS#3(Baby A's daddy) tonight, and she continues to improve. I hope and pray that it will continue, and she will keep doing what babies do...eat, sleep and grow *VBS* Tomorrow is April 1st. I've heard there is a nasty virus making the rounds, so everyone be extra careful on April Fools Day!

I'm so happy to hear Baby A continues to recover. Baby L is just too cute, so happy!

Love the rug. Bow ties looks like a fun quilt.

I think I might have to add a bow tie to the list!! Love the colors in yours.

Glad to hear that all the babies are doing well. Will keep Baby A in my prayers as well as her worried Grandma! Take care, dear Finn.

Always seems like it takes too long to discover the problem, but sure glad it is now found. I bet Baby A really puts on weight now. Thanks for keeping us informed.

Happy to hear baby A is improving. Love that rug. I'm going to have to check your tutorial and see how it's made.

No March finish, no big deal Finn. Sometimes we just can't do, due to family circumstances...
You will do fine for April I am sure! 8-)
Happy B-Day to the little guy! What a cutie! 8-)

What a precious boy! I love having grandchildren. I would be beside myself if I had as many as you.
