New Month


I think this it was the LONGEST March to ever exist!  I thought the month would never end and I really lost track of days and weeks with the chaos going on in the world.  It's hard to form a new schedule that you are not use to and stick to it with so many restrictions.  This I have to improve on as our 'stay at home' has been extended - and we started a lot earlier than others.


I'm still going to use the OMG this month to help move a project to it's next phase.  If April becomes a long month as well, I might just finish this project as well.


The goal is to get my sneakers into a flimsy.  Sashings don't bother me, but borders are another story.  I'm changing things up a bit because I want to use up fabrics from the past three quilts.  Yes, this was a new pattern but grown from the scraps of others before it - Harry Potter, Rainbow Unicorn, and Goats in Pajamas.  I want to get this fabric out of my system.


For the FaceBook group - Finish One Project a Month I have pulled the Black Bear - Sew Fresh Quilts Pattern.  I did a brown bear for my Daughter and then made this shortly after - 4 yrs ago?????  I think it is time to get this one quilted.  It's a big quilt, so if one of my long armers is taking drop offs I will be sending this one out for quilting.

And I have all those blocks that were discovered to finish playing with making more.  I consolidated all my plaids, wovens, and shirtings into that one big tote and it is stuffed.


I have this pattern "Chicken Gumbo" that would be fun to play with to use up some of those.  AND if I piece some of the larger stuff for the back - more will be moved out.

Stay Safe and Healthy,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. It has been a challenge to create a new normal for the next few weeks. Having some goals has been helpful for me too.

  4. So much cute stuff here. I’m with you on the length of March. I was doing the Instagram Quilt Fest where we posted a picture related to a quilting prompt each day. I thought it would never end! It seems everyone felt that way. It’s strange because I’m not really doing anything I wouldn’t do anyway. I’m pretty much a homebody and don’t go out except for grocery shopping. The rain didn’t help because I couldn’t get out and do any gardening.

  5. Oh my goodness, I never know what day it is anymore. I thought it was retirement, but with not even being able to go anywhere, it's even worse! LOL!! Yes, it's a great time to get those projects out and finished. You've sure found some good ones!

  8. I also have to think everyday when I wake up "what day is it" with having no routine and structure to each day. You have lots of lovely projects to keep you busy. Enjoy the extra time.
