OMG - March

It's been working real well for me to use OMG this year to move a project on to it's next phase and not have it sit for any length of time or forgotten.

My March goal was to get some old cross stitch blocks re-tooled and into a flimsy.  This is an alphabet sampler that has been lost for too long.  I have backing and batt ready and it will now wait in line to be quilted.

Please be sure to visit all the link-ups HERE.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. The OMG is a great motivator! It’s good to know that I’m not the only one that have a stack of stichery blocks, Done but not finished!

  2. This month my OMG has been to put away the SQUIRREL projects fabrics that never came to be born so I can get on with some of the older UFO's in my stash. A few years ago I made LOADS of blocks, that finish at 5", and this week I counted them and checked how many I would need. I was able to weed out 71 that I had made in some rogue colorways, and I still have more than enough to make a king size bed when set with alternate fabric blocks! Yea! Those rogue ones went into a small bin together so they can marinate a little longer while I make the big one. The alternate fabric shirtings have been ordered! 1800's reprints, semi scrappy. The blocks are various indigo prints with shirtings. So no matchy has to happen.

  3. I like your cross stitch quilt. Have fun quilting it.

  4. Those blocks are great. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.
