I’m fairly certain that any of you who are playing along on this one are doing way better than I am. Ugh!
Last month’s project for me was “Women of Design”:
I did manage to get one more block almost finished — to which My Cowboy retorts, “‘Almost’ only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades!”
I got the basket made, and my applique is cut out and pinned on, so I do plan to still finish this one sometime this month, when I sit down in the evenings to do handwork.
I still don’t have my Bluework quilt quilted, because I’m still not caught up on my longarm backlog (will I ever be?), but it’s already time to choose another project to work on during March.
I’ve drawn the number 8 for this month, which is my Postage Stamp quilt.
I’ve been using my Postage Stamp quilt as a leader/ender project for a long, long time. I have several blocks made, and lots of pieces cut, but I have no idea how close to done I really am, where my finished blocks are (packed away, no doubt), or how much more I need to cut (if any) to finish it up.
Here’s what a couple of the blocks look like, photographed in poor lighting:
You can read about the beginnings of this project, from way back in June 2011, here: Postage Stamp Love. Four years is long enough to drag this out, right?
I will regroup on this project, figure out what’s left to do, and hopefully make some good progress on it this month. If I go back to using it as my main leader/ender project, I should get several more blocks finished, at least!
How about you? Did you finish a project last month?
Are you ready to work on another one for March?
What will you choose?
Sue sent me a picture of her February project within the first week — all quilted and bound and everything!
And Janet wasn’t far behind her — she attended a retreat and got hers done.
And Cindy finished one as well:
Aren’t these great? I love when you all send me pictures . . . it
makes me feel like a slacker is very inspiring.
I can’t wait to see what you’re all gonna work on this month. Here we go!
Happy March stitching!
