February NewFO


So hard to believe that February has flown by...time to post the results (or lack thereof) to the 2013 NewFO challenge being hosted at Cat Patches.

This month I participated again in the Sassaman Challenge. This time the challenge was to complete a quilt top using Jane Sassamans' Ocean Wave recipe. So – Ta Da! I actually completed quilt top #2.5. The great news is that I now actually have something to baste and quilt and bind, OH MY!

Here is that little gem:

Secondly, I started and completed (sort of) my first blog hop challenge. I signed up for the lovely Madam Samm's All About Me Hop. I made the following tote bag out of my little block and filled it with FABRIC! The unfinished part is that I am still trying to visit all of the participant sites. The results are amazing.

I did a tiny (teeeny teeeny tiny) bit of FMQ work on my Express Your Love quilt that Leah Day has been leading. My goal of quilting daily has gone a bit awry. But she does look rather lovely hanging on my wall, spewing threads accusingly at me.  I promise you, I will do her proud (someday).

Now, I’m not keeping count, but I do have the 2 “promised” starts that I had assigned  myself:

January – new rug for the bathroom – um not started.  Well kind of – I did buy the fabric.

February – start my first leather bag project – ummmm not started.   I did buy the fabric – the half cow I mentioned in a previous post.  And another 2 yards of pink leather just in case. 

So that’s where I am.   For March – I have some interesting things coming up.   Stay tuned, because if you're reading this and not sewing, you’re not finishing anything either.  Smile

Have a great week -
