Design Floor Monday

So this is spring break week for my grandkids and we were supposed to be in the Smokey Mountains on a camping trip, but when snow is forecast, I think it's a better time to stay home and sew.  There is some disappointment around, but it is what it is.  We'll have time later.

I am having a lot of fun doing lots of different things, which makes all the difference for me. I wake up thinking what I'll get done that day. Sometimes, I even get it done. First, I'm almost done with the April Comfort and Joy block. I brought this up to embroider while I listen to hubby's news shows. I almost never have to look up!
Here is my precious curly haired granddaughter who is my inspiration for doing Curly Top! I have sweeter pictures of my Ruby, but this one really shows that beautiful hair. This is from Christmas. 
And here are the 3 curly top blocks ironed down and partially appliqued.  I have bought a ton of the cutest buttons to embellish this quilt.  I think she's going to love it.
I enjoyed embroidering the snowman on the row quilt from Patchwork Posse so much, that I decided to find a pattern I liked.  I actually found some 'antique' ones of my mom's, but decided I'd like a spring one.  I found this bunny pattern at Erica's and it has been very enjoyable.  Another one of those projects while I listen to TV.  And I am very proud I am using up a lot of the pinks from my Valentine quilt.

And this is my Comfort and Joy for March.  I am embroidering her whatever the black stuff is that sticks down from her hair.  I'm not really liking her look.  I've been thinking about making is a crown or something instead.  I'll work on it more and decided.
I see that Judy has her links up for Design Wall and C&J.  They will have to link to the same post!!

I'd really enjoy a comment from you.  First, I can go see your stuff and we'll be friends!!!  And second, when I get over 150 looks and two comments, I think my stuff must suck! LOL!!

Haven't had time to look at everyone's projects.  I'm off to do that now!
