The secret of making time stop…

February 11th, 2009

The older we get, the faster time goes by.  I’ve learned the secret of making time stop (and with no help from Jack, Sawyer or Hurley).   No Dharma Initiative needed… just join Anne’s  crazy cute “A Tiskit, A Tasket BOM” (block of the month) and you’ll see how slow time can go by.  At the beginning of the month, I was stalking patiently waiting at Anne’s blog for her to upload the February block.   Now I wait for March’s block.







Time has stood still - I can hardly stand waiting the next 10 months!
Dude, Where's My Valentine?
I’ve used Moda’s Swell and Sweet (by the Urban Chicks) for all the applique on my blocks.  My February block - I’ve used all Swell. If anyone is looking for Sweet… go visit my pal Jona at her Fabritopia shop!

Edited in: The yummy, yummy, yummy yellow background is a Moda Basics called “Dottie” and the color is called “Butter”. Call your local/online quilt shop TODAY and BEG them to order you some. And then please let me know about it… I want need to buy more!

    I saw your block on Anne’s Flickr group. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!! I hear what you’re saying but I haven’t even finished January’s block yet! I have to put the face and arms on the snowman and applique on the leaves and I’m done. But I want to start on February’s!!! I have my fabrics all picked out and ready… well somewhat ready, to go.

    Maybe I should get off this computer and get to work!

(Will send you a link if you email me since we are strictly forboden from linking here. LOL) :-P~~~

But in this case I will go out on a limb and tell you (and anyone else reading comments) I LOVE YOUR BLOCKS from Anne BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE’S!!!! They are beautiful and your handwork is incredible.
