And so the month ends....

In my time zone, there are almost two hours left in March, and I've finished one more project.  Here's my Christmas Through the Year gift.

I was inspired by Quilt Hollow, who found her tutorial at the Moda Bake Shop.  I've always admired Cathedral windows, and now I know just how simple they are to make!  I'll be making more when I'm not so rushed.  Try one if you haven't already!

Sadly, my arthritis is acting up, and I tried to quilt tonight, but I just couldn't do it.  Sew, there's no Sew It's Finished for this month.  But tomorrow is a new month, and I can start on all new projects.  I've already kitted up my ornament for the month and chosen a pattern for my BSA block.  I'm pretty well adjusted to being back to work now, so I should be more productive in April.

One last little thing to share.  I work for a very large global company.  Yesterday at lunchtime, I was sitting in my car playing Words With Friends with my friend Kate in Australia.  So it seemed very ironic to hear a 'clip clop' sound, and see this buggy go by. 
A tale of two centuries?

Stitch on, my friends.........Sunny

    I visited the Amish...out in the country of Pennsylvania. They are really very special people. There is quite a calm, loving, patient spirit about them. Their children are soooo well behaved too.
