QUESTION THAT I DIDN'T SEE AN ANSWER TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the latest you can submit a battle project each month is...?  take this month for instance; I MAY be able to finish my initial project in time.  but what time zone are we going by here?  does it have to be turned in by 11:59:59pm EST?  PT?  I will pray for Pacific because it'll give me an extra hour, but I can deal with whatever.  I just need to know!

Made it just in time for one Feb project!   
   

Class/Challenge/House Pride: February UFO
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.) it's for a Chinese auction for a friends mother who has been very sick and needs help paying for her medical bills.
House: Wordy
Project Name: Hexagon baby blanket
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/hexagon-baby-blanket
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) Well started this a couple years ago for a friends baby and didn't get it finished, so when I was asked to make something for the auction I pulled this out and finished it off.
Project Picture:

Wrapped up all pretty


I'm going to take ten bonus points for charity, and ten for it having purple!

Research Project Name: Nidificate
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: 0
Project Page Link (if available): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=431969.0#axzz2uy8GLb1u
Brief Description: This project was inspired by the "wordy" challenge to create something from a unique/uncommon/long word. I didn't realize that the project didn't have to go this way but it was my initial inspiration, so I kept it.
The word "nidificate" literally means "to build a nest" in direct context with birds. So I made an artist's book with seven watercolor painted images of different bird species with a variety of nest building materials and techniques. I was careful to try and vary the species and techniques to keep it interesting. I also included the definition in the book for anyone who wondered about that strange word. Once the paintings were dry I attached them together with linen tape (which was a first for me, wet, sticky stuff) and then attached them to some board that I covered in a bright blue book cloth. There is a little cut-out image on the front of a nest with three eggs (I've two kids already, and one on the way Wink ) and the colophon is attached to the back (not pictured). I am really excited that I completed this and that it turned out better than I had imaged. I like it when that happens.
Project Picture:

The fifth page spread:


The final and seventh page spread:


The finished book structure:


One of the finished paintings inside: (I scanned all of the images before folding them in half and permanently attaching them inside of a book. This is the scanned hummingbird, pre-folding and attaching.)


Whew! I think that is it!
