Where does the "time" go????

I turn around and the next thing I know it's Saturday morning and I haven't blogged since Monday.....how does that happen? To top it off it's February 28th - where did this month go exactly? I think as we get older "time" (damn 4 letter word) just begins to fly by!!!! I'll never get all those quilts finished I want to do!

Speaking of which - Sandy Lindal's class, Primitive Log Cabin was on Wednesday night and the girls got busy making up those blocks......There's Sandy at the ironing board (probably pressing one of my blocks). In the background you can see some blocks on the design wall....mine are on the left and Carol's are on the right - so very different. Mine is the "traditional" mixed plaids while Carol and Pat are doing kid's quilts - fussy cutting the centres - with great brights surrounding the centre blocks.....I will get close ups at the next class on March 11th.
Barb decided to keep us company and is busy knitting a sock!
There's Libby working diligently.

.....while Ruth, Pat and Carol are busy at their machines. Two of our students were absent for the first class but hopefully will be joining us on March 11th and we'll get to see all the variations.....Since it's my second time taking this class you would think I would get alot done but, alas it will be a miracle if I have time to get any extra blocks done.......
Sandy and I have figured out that at the rate I am going I would probably have to take the class around 30 times......to make 120 blocks for a full size quilt! Okay, that can't be right! Will definitely have to work on that one.....
Since I have been so busy (it's that time of year) with my other office obligations it's been hard for me to keep up with what's happening at the store. I know there are a few new books (will get some pics later today) and there are magazines that have come in including Quilters' Home which is supposedly a very controversial issue....so much so that Jo-Ann's Fabrics in the U.S. will not be selling this particular issue. Marc Lipinski definitely moves outside the box in this issue......
The weather is definitely fickle these days - start out at 8 degrees then within minutes drop to -8 degrees and the winds yesterday were unbelievable. Good time to be quilting (it's nice and warm in the store.....).....Today is supposed to be pretty cold too - I'm about to venture out! Hope you all have a great day!
Happy quilting!
Jo-Ann
