FNSI: March Results!

While I didn't get the new quilt top started like I'd planned, I did manage to get 6 new blankets done.  I cut six of the green jungle, so two are still in pieces, but at least these got finished and ready for matching onesies and bibs!  For the new baby boys out there....

 Green Jungle - look closely - what made the designer of this adorable fabric include a whale??
 Alexander Henry "Zoo" fabric - love the bold colors and graphic animals...
 Dinosaurs!  T-Rex, Stegasauraus, and Brontasauraus
I'm going to check out the other FNSI results!

Last weekend, I finished these totes....since I've already taken the pictures, I thought I'd show them off too.

Damask and Nautical Rope - Reversible

 Green Damask and Stripe - Reversible

Blue and white stripe and Swirls - Reversible

Top 10 U2 Songs....

A few months back, and it could very well have been a year ago, one of my dear brothers posted his Top-10 U2 songs to Facebook.  When I saw it, I promised my rebuttal, but I couldn't find all my disks so that I could start listening to jot down my list.  Making the Top 10 proved harder, much harder, than I originally thought because I just like too many of their songs!  I finally did it - so hard to narrow it down, but here it is:
1) Wire - This is my all-time favorite...others are not in order....
2) Love Comes Tumbling
3) So Cruel
4) Two Hearts (my first favorite U2 song)
5) Please
6) Elevation
7) City of Blinding Lights
8) Zooropa
9) Three Sunrises
10) Love and Peace or Else

These were on my scrap trying to muscle into the top 10.....A Man and A Woman....Ultraviolet....Gone...Trip Through Your Wires....Discotheque...Party Girl...Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me...In God's Country....11 O'Clock Tick Tock.

The thing is - none of my tops are on my Brother's tops.....these are his:
1) One
2) New Years Day
3) Pride
4) Bad (Live)
5) Where the Streets Have No Name
6) Sometimes you can't make it on your own
7) Heartland
8) All I want is You
9) Zoo Station
10) Silver and Gold (live)

Anyone care to chime in??
