This week went quite a bit better than last week.
Althought it is the first of the month, and work is always very
busy the first of the month,
I did get up off the couch and worked on a quilt for a lady at work.
 Well not exactly for her, but her grandson.  This
is the fourth Dr Seuss I have made.  Still not tired of it.
Maybe this pattern, but not the fabric.

Still need to add his name in the white
section and the load it on the frame
and have a little fun.  The border is
 my favorite part.

Elizabeth over at had a thread give away. 
It was a "name this thread"  contest and look what I won.
.                         This was not the thread I named but the thread I won.  I can't wait to try it out... Superior Thread, Poly Quilter.
I think I have just the quilt for this thread.  Thanks, Elizabeth, for the chance to win.

While I've been sitting  relaxing on the couch I have been drawing. Actually I have
been practicing some quilting on a sketch pad.

  Getting better I think, at least you can tell what it is... I hope.
Now if only I can do the same thing on the machine.

Worked on my taxes also, and to think it's only March.
DS taxes is another thing.

Linking up with Sarah for Whoop Whoop Friday
