This month has flown by ---as they all do.
But I have a question --- WHY is February the shortest month of the year? Who decided all of that? Why do some months have more days than others anyway, wouldn’t it be nice if they were all even? LOL
Okay, I know someone is going to comment on why things are what they are, and I accept that they are what they are but February is just SHORT SHEETED and that is all there is to it!

Linda Frantz has Monkey, and I have Blue. I’m allergic to fur, so this is my sewing companion….(We would have several cats and dogs if only I could be around fur but I make up for it in fabric enhancements….)Cute cute cute!
If you were around last Sunday for Quilt Cam, you will remember that I am re-making a new sample of my Sister’s Choice Quilt. 42 blocks this time set 6 X 7.
I’ve spent some time today ironing the strip sets that I sewed on Sunday – and cutting them into 4 2.5” sections . (the leftover you see on the right end is for squaring and trimming) All the sets have been matched with their one extra square that will be the 4th corner of the 9 patch.
This is how things get laid out and counted at my house:
All along the long arm take up rail!
I’m feeling the need for some treadling tonight, so this is where you will find me assembling these puppies. I have ONE assembled….41 to go! How many can I get done in about 90 minutes? Let’s see!
Come bring a project and sew along!
