M&M

What did I just spend a whole evening doing?   Well, glad you asked.   Separating the good from the bad M&Ms.

What???   No, no, I meant the green from the good!

“Bad” and “Good” M&Ms

 

No! I meant the green from the red!

 

There are NO bad M&Ms!!

Just green is bad for my next party theme- Valentine’s Day.

just green M&Ms

JUST the “Bad” green ones

 

I need red,

just red M&Ms

JUST the “Good” red ones

 

white, pink and purple.

Unfortunately for me, all that’s on clearance right now is the Christmas candy.   But hey!    If all I have is red for Valentine’s, then we’re gonna pretend red is all we needed!

And, the “bad” ones taste just as good!

Putting them in a purple cup MAKES them purple, right???

(What do you mean where are the green ones??   How should I know??   I’m innocent, I swear!   They were just right there!   What do you mean why is my hand green???   Dang it!   They promised they wouldn’t melt in my hand!!)

Quickly Quietly Quilting

Update:  This is what the baby quilt looked like Monday evening at 9:38 pm.  (That’s when my bobbin ran out.  My arms were already yelling “Uncle”!!)  The top 4 rows are completed, and was attaching the fifth…

This is definitely a challenge: racing against the clock!!

Starting to actually look like a quilt!

Uh, please overlook the mess in the background, as usual, I didn’t see it till now.  Don’t worry, fans, plenty of slobbery to go around!  The fount of post material is not in any danger of running dry!!

Just in case you have forgotten, or don’t know, this is the bobbin:

So, back to the sweatshop, uh, I mean the air conditioned factory of joy!!
