As a side note, I belonged to Google +, but rarely used it.  I won't be using it at all now.  I was kicked off for spamming, etc.  I'm totally innocent.  I'm guessing my name as billiemick was hacked.  I did send them an email, but never heard back.

So to my friends on Google +, I won't be able to comment anymore.

So Sorry.

One Monthly Goal - Spring on Beecker Street



One Monthly Goal


I'll be adding sashing to my 56 pinwheels.  Each pinwheel needs one strip on bottom and one on the right.  Should I finish that, I'll be attaching the pinwheels in the designated groups.

2017 Designer Mystery Block 6



Block 6

2017 Designer Mystery

"Putting on the Ritz"

Designed by Karla Eisenach, Susan Kendrick and Lisa Burnett of Sweetwater.


I think one of the things I love about the Designer Mystery is the instructions are excellent, and they always send more than enough fabrics. 

I must say the print is getting smaller.....oh ohhhhh....it's the old eyes...giggle.

Loved this Movie!



See I'm always telling Mick, "Don't poke the Bear (Me)"
