I was able to get March's BOM finished today. It seems like March is slipping away very quickly and I didn't want to be sewing this block the night before it was due. I kept the fabrics the same, but redrafted the corner and center blocks to take them from 16 pieces each, to 8 pieces each.

And from the Sunday comics.......a little chuckle!

I had to wake my cat up today.....thanks to daylight savings time. Gracie is on a specific time schedule to receive insulin shots. Normally, she comes to get me at the right time as her internal clock is pretty accurate. I live in Indiana and we are in the Eastern time zone. There's nothing "eastern" about Indiana and in the middle of the summer, we have daylight until 10:30 PM. It's absurd. People actually mow their lawns at 10 PM, when I'd like to be sleeping, or at least be enjoying little peace and quiet.

I live in an area of Indiana that only recently started using DST (maybe 3 or 4 years now). We never changed our clocks, we just relied on God's natural timing. It worked for us! CBS's Sixty Minutes did a segment on our area that said that it costs us 60 million dollars per year in extra utility costs on DST. The only advantage that they found was that golf courses got more tee times. Grrrrrrr.....

Oh well. I have no choice but to adjust and accept....and so I will! Gracie too!

It's too early......let me sleep!

Gracie and Oliver on "robin watch" duty. They've been keeping quite busy with all of the bird activity lately....well, between naps, anyway.

Spring has sprung....or at least it's springing! I'm not sure when these crocuses broke ground because the snow just melted over the weekend. This is right next to the house where it's the warmest.

(Kathleen.....looks like Indiana is about a week behind Illinois.)
