We are still approaching Spring with all the temperature swings.
We are now waiting on tomorrow's April Fools Joke. Can you guess what it is?

According to the NYS DOT we are not going to be getting any more snow this spring.
I hear you - how can they possibly know? I have no idea myself but they took down all the snow fencing this week so it must be so. I hope Mother Nature got the same message since it's only March and we have gotten plenty of spring snow storms in both April and May.

If I can do it, then you can do it too!
Apparently, Momma has been watching Instagram videos of cats and dogs using recordable buttons to "talk" or tell their Momma's what they want. For instance, what toy to play with or the need for food/water or that they need to go outside.
In the past, when I wanted to go outside, I rang the bell that lives by the door. I recently started ringing the bell to get more treats. Momma is already off the couch so it's not a bother for her to divert to the treat drawer in the quilt lab instead.
Now when I ring the bell, Momma pushes the green button, which says "outside" and she opens the door. If I want a treat she pushes the orange button which says "treats".
My Momma is sooooo smart!! =^..^=
I wonder what other buttons I can teach her to press??

Uncle Tommy has taken up making maple syrup!!
He's tapped trees at his house, GrandPoppa's house and 2 trees at my house for a total of 10 taps.
Hello all - busy date/late post so it'll be quick...
The weather has bounced around temperature wise = spring is coming!
The sap is running = spring is coming!
We hit a high of 65F today = spring is coming!

Are you sensing a theme??!!
Well, of course we could get one more late season snowstorm - but even that usually means spring is coming! LOL!
I thought I would share a couple of the projects I've been working on recently...
For my birthday gift to myself, I joined the Smitten BOM with Pink Door Fabrics. Each month for a year we get enough Tula fabric to fussy cut 3 or 4 of these large hexagons. I didn't bring the size with me but I'm going to guess the final quilt will be couch size. I have less than half to go on the fourth hexagon for Month 1. Month 2 should ship this week. Other goodies in the BOM include a project bag, an acrylic Smitten key chain and monthly glue pen refills. I skipped the monthly Aurifil thread add-on as I don't color match my threads. The BOM also has a great Facebook page with video tutorials. I highly recommend Pink Door for BOMs.ZiggZagg project.
When it's too cold outside and I'm tired of being naughty, I like to survey my domain from GreatGrandMomma's card table.
Momma doesn't want me to brag but I thought I would give you a little tour of some of her stuff in my domain:
Ummmm.... How did it get to be March already?
We started the weather week with a lovely warm day last Wednesday. I thoroughly enjoyed walking to the bank without my puffer coat on! It was a 1 day gift as the temps have since been varying a little more and everything feels cold. In fact, it's currently 40F but I'm considering a warm mug of cocoa as I have a chill. Maybe the chill is knowing it's going to drop 15 degrees in the next couple of hours and start snowing again?

And while I know that I've been awful in sharing any other project, I just wanted to share proof that I do have other projects going. I'll share more info another day if y'all are interested.
|A fun tessellating pattern I saw online. |
Best part is it uses papers I already had and a scrap pack of grunge that just arrived
from an awesome Etsy where I've been spending too much money lately.

It's a machine project but can you tell how small the blocks are?
Great scrappy project but it's certainly not going to finish scraps at any great pace.
