March Progress

March is finally here!  I hope that means that the melting snow will lead to green spring, and not more snow.  We finally bought a snow blower and have not used it yet, so guessing there will be no more snow!  Fine with us.  
Here is the third clue for the Kathleen Tracy Small Quilts Mystery.  We made four patches (last two columns) with lights and darks that contrasted with our other clues.  Really love small quilts!
I decided to buy a bunch of fabric from facebook marketplace at a deep discount.  It was about 100 bucks for all of this fabric.  I was happy to add it to my shelves.

Today Hazel is hanging out with me.  I managed to get the Rainbow Scrap Challenge block in green done at her naptimes (and this blog too!).  The pattern is Bonnie Hunter's Pine Tree Point.  If I have not mentioned it, this block is a bit high maintaince as far as I am concerned.  I keep messing up and putting the aqua frame around then have to remove it and put the white on first.  Going by memory does not serve me (since it is wrong in my memory) so hopefully next month I will do better! Linking up with SoScrappy's RSC.

I cannot remember if I mentioned it on here, but a few weeks ago I lost my large diamond from my married in my heart wedding ring.  I spent the next few weeks searching everywhere (I had not left home but had walked the trash up to the house) and finally concluded it must have gone down our bathtub drain that day when I showered.  I was sewing when I noticed it missing and went back through several bins that I had been in figuring it had landed in there even.  A few days ago I got out my civil war scraps to do the mini quilt and when I was done I moved the dog bed to put them back and THERE IT WAS!  My diamond!  I am not sure if it just wound up under that bed originally or if when I dumped my bins and went through them if it landed over that way.  In any event, it was like winning the lottery and I am overjoyed I can get it fixed.  Really did not want to spend the money to replace it as I barely working these days and it is an extravagance I could live without.
