Spent: $0.00 -- (I know -- I'm as shocked as you are.)
Subtotal of April's accumulated earnings: $37.00
Holdover from last month: -$39.40
Ultimate March total: -$2.40 (Look at me make up the Red Zone.)
And here is my proud moment of the month/weekend-- aka, what I spent my ENTIRE weekend doing (while watching hockey, hockey documentaries, and listening to audio books.... in between naps. Why, yes, it was a glorious weekend, thank you!):
That's Chessie and Me's "In Virtue's Ways." I sort of kept some of the colors while changing them all to silks, and I completely changed the words and the embellishments. I wanted to do something with this piece because though I loved it, I just couldn't "love"it if you know what I mean. Suddenly it hit me when I realized it reminded me of my favorite book growing up. And in that moment the redo began. I had to change the color of the cabin since it is grey in the book and the perfect words had to be found and the dates had to be picked (LIW's birthday and the publication date of the original LHitBW).
Also completed this month was the little guy from the last post..... he's still making me laugh with that very perturbed expression of his.
Now I have an offer for those interested. I have done my effort on In Virtue's Ways. I'm not going to do it again. If you'd like the pattern (including the rose colored ceramic button since it did not work with the space I had when I redid the pattern), just leave a comment saying that on this post and I will draw a winner on Friday. [Note: In this first picture, I put the button on the bottom of the page next to the cat logo so you can see how cute it is-- it really is nice it just didn't work where I had room for it.]

(A bit of a reminder to myself, as I whine about it being Monday in my little corner of the Fortune 500 that there are people in Nepal who need my prayers.)
