What? Its been a Month?

So where did it go? I know it was right here a few days ago.
What happened to February? Has anyone seen it?

That is one of the many reasons I dislike February. Its short. Very short. Why does it not have the shortest name? Its too short to get anything accomplished in.

Last month I realized that March was coming up. That means a Grand baby would arrive. So I began to cross stitch and embroider the top of the quilt I bought for the baby...

So far so good. I had forgotten how long it takes, and have been working on it some. I had made each of my children a different style of quilt, so this will work.
When I did Royce's quilt - it was a shadow quilt pattern. Very soft and pastel. Its so pastel that pictures of it show up very faded even, but this is one of the blocks:

There are 4 blocks on it total, this was the bear with the rainbow block. Then I spent time looking at quilts. Knitting has suffered. I got disgusted with the swatches for the Master Knitter level 1 so have purchased new yarn. Will start over here in a bit on the swatches.

March came as a Lion here - the truck has decided it wants a new engine. This comes after the van needed new wiper motors on front and back and new tires. So at moment we are down to one vehicle.

But everything in the world stopped on Friday at 12:53 for me when I was told this person has arrived:

Meet Vincent Joseph Kajka. Born March 4, 2011. Weighing in at 6lbs 6 ounces and 19 inches long. I am so in love with him at moment, everything from the past month can be forgotten.
