Ending the 'Leap' Month


Although it seemed to go by too fast, I am happy February is over.  Now we didn't get all those huge snow storms like so many, but we had extreme cold, extreme rains, extreme thunderstorms, extreme winds and for a giggle - Mother Nature threw in a day or two of warm.  A very strange month! 

How did I do on my short Goal list?



Completed my 'Let's Book It' project.  And you really need to visit the linky party to see what other's acheived - fabulous projects!!  Maybe you will join us next month.



Kept up with all of my RSC16 blocks and the column quilt.  I am glad that we are done working brown.  As someone said to me - brown mud and  brown trees, just tired of it!

  
My Slow Sunday Stitching didn't include any cross stitch this month as planned, but it was used for bindings, a little hand quilting, and keeping on track with the '365' project.  My circles really reflect our February.


Yes, January and  February at a glance.  A bit of color here and there as well as a splash of bright - my hopefull days or my dreaming days.

Now my Do More of What Makes You Happy:


The Amish Nines miniature


Testing patterns for  Bea Lee of BeaQuilter.  


Using up scraps


Building some house blocks for a block lotto

AND quilting


My SIL's quilt using up her scraps - this is her version of Nifty Nines.  I didn't realize I had chopped the top until I came in from photoing, but this has the piano key border all the way around.  She is still working on the binding on the other at home, so a photo will have to wait. 


My Nifty Nines project


The 'Dottie' completed

The last (extra) day of the month I am going to just play!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  12. Lots of nice things for February. I always forget to enter your linky. I'm always pulling out some pattern from long ago, and working on it (with changes, of course).

  13. Sew many gorgeous projects! You did much much better on your goal list than I did. We are expecting a big storm tonight = i guess March is coming in like a lion!

  14. Great projects, as always. I really like the pieced block backgrounds for your Quilty 365 project. In fact I'm enjoying everyone's ideas on background squares as much as the circles they've chosen to represent their days.

  15. I like your 365 quilt....that the circles are smaller and show more light backrground. It's very restful for the eyes.

  16. So many nice projects. I like how your backgrounds for your Quilty365 circles are pieced - making the backgrounds as interesting and important as the circles. I know what you mean about February - it was nice to turn the calendar to March this morning. That much closer to springtime.
