Is Spring really here???

I'm wondering if Spring is really here. The sun is so nice and warm today. You don't even need a jacket. I raked up some more leaves out of the back yard this morning. There is about a ton left out there to be picked up. Maybe tomorrow when AJ is here I can get him to help with them. Wish me luck...
I unpacked my new GO machine this morning. I haven't had a chance to use mine, but I'm sure I'm going to love it. I got the 2.5" strip cutter and the 5" square dies for it. Earlier this week one of the ladies brought her GO machine into our quilting group and I had a chance to try it. It was "love at first cut".
I have been playing with two blocks. They're the Sliced Nine Patch that I found on and my version of the Double Nine Patch. Both of them are looking good. I will post photos later.
I need to get ready to go to work. Talk to you more later...

  1. I'm also a retired Nana...down in Louisiana. Just wondering if you found a bargin when you purchased your GO. The basic price that I seem to find is $349. I've been drooling over them & am looking for the best possible price as my funds are limited in the crafting area.
