A Make in March

Cast your mind back to 1992...
yep... that's 20 years ago...

This song was a BIG HIT...
"Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus.

Go on... sing along...
You KNOW you want to...
I've been busily stitching away when I could and managed to have a "Monthly Make" for March.
It's a little 24inch "Blanket of Love" for the hospital. I love making these blankets especially when I can make one TOTALLY from stash... and not just any stash... bits and pieces left over from other projects. Well I fib... sorry... cause I did use NEW pellon in the sandwich... but the fabric was left over. You can see how I "pieced" two of the borders to make it stretch to JuSt enough. But having said that I'm really HaPPy with how it turned out.

Visit our Flickr group HERE to see some great pic's of what's happening in blogland... or visit Annie at "Monthly Makes in 2012" to join in any month you like... HERE.

And if you break my heart...
My achy breaky heart...
I just don't think he'll understand....


Are YOU still singing...





These may put a smile on your face...

This is what COURAGE looks like...
This is what a HELPING HAND looks like...
This is what SORRY looks like...

And I'm truly SORRY for putting THAT song in your head.....

Only 17 days to go until THE big day for DD#1
