I Loved, I Honored, I Obeyed

So ... I am smack dab in the middle of a big project with a big ... looming ... deadline. Oh, and by the way ... this isn't it. No sirree, this is the project that I impulsively took on yesterday afternoon and pushed my other project aside. This is the project that brought joy into my heart and ache into my back by the time I finished it last night.

This little number can be downloaded for free over at The Blog That Makes You Drool -- Bunny Hill. She is doing a Block of the Month and giving away the patterns ... oh yes ... for free. Since this is February, she has now offered two of the twelve. A couple of weeks ago, I decided that I really, really wanted to do them, which surprised even me. I'm generally not drawn to this sort of activity, because as you well know, I have a hard time sticking to the pattern and the directions, but I thought this would be a good exercise for me. (I picked my own fabrics of course and did machine applique instead of hand, but I still consider that following the pattern.)

I know for a fact that I won't get February's done before the March one comes out because now my deadlines are even loom-ier. But that's okay.

'Cause I followed the rules and I'm proud as punch.

Admit it ... you are thinking about downloading your own, aren't you?
