Now how did that happen? February came and went in a flash! Seems like yesterday that I was checking off my list of goals for January…now here it is, the last day of February! SEW how did I do this month?
I have to say…I am clicking right along on my monthly goals and even though February was a short month, I still managed to get ‘er done!
Goal #1~Stitch Ten Wee Houses
DONE!…I made eleven, so CHECK…
A close-up…I now have a village with 22 houses done!!
Goal #2~ Finish a UFO…well…TWO UFOs got Finished! It helped having a Quilt Show earlier this month!
This is Jan Patek’s Moda Love Free pattern from the Moda Love Blog Hop! DONE!!
Check out the BIG stitch hand quilting!
AND…this is my second UFO… a Primitive Gathering Quilt called ‘Summertime’…It’s wool applique on cotton and she’s…
DONE!! (Insert Happy dance here as this one has been in a tote FOREVER!)
Goal #3…DONE! (I’m whispering here…) The secret quilt for a family member is all cut out and I have started to sew it together! It’s a secret so you will have to take my word for it!!:o))
Goal #4~ Norma Whaley’s “Winter Wonderland” quilt is ahead of schedule…the January’s blocks were the two trees and February’s was the angel block…both are stitched and I have prepped March’s mittens and April’s house blocks!! Whoot whoot!
And the gravy…which is the extra stitching… I am continuing to hand stitch these in the evening…
And I have the triangles all sewn
…and cut out for the ‘Home for the Holidays’ Quilt…
Yup…there are a million of them! The triangles form the blocks that go in between these finished wool appliqued blocks….
I am now taking off the Thangle papers and pressing the HST open. Yup, we are talking baby steps here but they all add up!
So I think that’s it…I am tickled with my monthly goals being met!
Having said that, it’s going to be difficult to meet these goals in March as it is our last month here…we will be heading home on March 22 and it usually takes us a minimum of five days to travel up the I-5. Plus once we get home, we have to unpack and do the household chores…and the garden will be in full Spring mode…Yup, the holiday will definitely be over! But that’s OK…I will get back into the swing of things before I know it! Plus I will have my sewing room back, so it’s all good!
I sure like having goals…they keep me focused, on track and in control…I am WOMAN, hear me roar!! I am less tempted to start something new! But man, am I ever itching to crack open some new fabric…AND I have a new blade in the rotary cutter and she is oiled and ready to roll…breath deep…in and out…in and out…
How was your February? Did you get you manage reach your goals…?
Have a super Saturday and Happy Stitching!~P
