The rest of February will fly by this week, but I have been stitching and my Design Floor has seen a number of projects in progress.
I managed to get the label done for the just-turned-1-year old of a family friend--the pieced backing was all from stash. The plaid has the same green as the Kona Tarragon solid on the front and binding. I delivered the quilt to DD Erica on Friday and she'll take it to her friend. Can't wait to see little Sid on the quilt.
Another backing was cobbled from leftover flannels for the baby quilt version of Falling Charms. It's folded in this pic but really is big enough.
Here's a pic of the finished top. This is to be packaged up with batting for my sister to quilt, then I'll bind it before handing in to Guild for donation. I kitted up a couple more charm square groupings to sew in the near future.
I spent some time organizing and culling the scrapbooking drawers I use for precut strips from scraps, separating solids by neutrals and colors to their own drawers. I really must keep up on the scrap management--my cutting table regularly gets out of control!
We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary Sunday--well, we were going to have dinner out but then my husband called with a dead car battery, from the mall where he had been on an errand. The jump from my car didn't work so we had to call my mechanic brother for help, then went to his shop and he put in a new battery. By that time it was nearly 7:30 pm, our reservation had been canceled, and I voted for staying home for leftover homemade soup and cookies. We'll reschedule the nice dinner out :) Our grandsons have their shared birthday this week and then our youngest daughter has her birthday the following week. It's a busy time of the year for celebrating--five weeks in a row for our family.
Next up, I will revisit my Three For September challenge beginning March 1. I've made my list of quilts and will work on one project every three days for the month of March. The self-challenge I did in September was very energizing and I'm looking forward to more progress on WIPS, perhaps even a couple of finishes.
