Marching On

It looks like March is starting with the Lion - cold, windy, and we are expecting back to back snow storms.  Gives plenty of reason to stay indoors and stitch the days away.

The commission work will come first as I go into quilting marathon  mode.  Then I will have a lot of binding to hand stitch down - a quilt in the lap for those cold nights sounds good. 

Because of priorities, I chose something small to complete for the OMG with Elm Street Quilts (linky party).  I found an old project the other day while digging around for something for my SIL.

Tucked away was this Bondo Bag that needs a good pressing, top stitching and handles added.  I have no idea how long ago I made this, it's been a while since I made bags.  I turned that portion of the Home Shop over to my SIL who is a way better bag maker than I am.

It's a long month, so hopefully I can catch up on the Harry Potter QAL as blocks will be saved.

The Temecula Quilt Co 'One Block' QAL will be easy to catch up on as those sail thru the machine and I may be just needing that after all the quilting.  Even the RSC19 are small easy blocks that chain and I won't beat myself up if those have to get caught up into next month.

I will be hosting over at   SARAH'S on March 21st for H2H - luckily I did that project before the commission came in.  I just need to send my draft on over to her.

I am enjoying getting back to my cross stitch and I pulled this magazine.  I will just pull the top floral in the basket to set into a mini.  It will be a good break when needed from the marathon.

The Victoria's Children with Barbara Brackman may get saved to complete next month as well.  We shall see how this month goes.  AND if March goes out like a Lamb, I will plan a get away - Cabin Fever!!

Sewingly Yours,

Looks like a busy month ahead in your sewing room. I think March is coming in like a lion in many areas.

Your get away sounds good.
The Bondo Bag looks interesting. I don't remember that you made them. Is there a pattern?
NICE cross stitch project! Looking forward to watching your progress with this one. Looks like spring.

It sounds as though your commission projects will keeep you busy while you wait out the storms. We got more than we expected overnight and there are still flakes coming down. I plan on sewing until it melts. I look forward to your H2H post.
