February Progress

Here is what I have accomplished and purchased so far this month.

Totally organized what is here in front of the TV. Basket is now empty and upstairs!

Sized and laid out vintage log cabin blocks I pieced about 2 years ago
Pieced another row on AJ's Ravens quilt

Started a mistake rib scarf for Anne Marie (I finished her mitts but forgot to take a picture)
So last weekend I was home alone with Scrappy. I went to Easton on Saturday and got pretzels, red beet eggs, and a white cream filled donut at the Amish market. I dropped in JoAnn's and treated myself with a magazine and $2/yd fabric.

I stopped in Lilies of the Field and found Thimbleberries fabric on the clearance rack for $1.99/yd. I bought what was left on the bolt.
Sunday, I went to the knit along at the Island Yarn Boutique. I worked on Anne Marie's scarf. This yarn came home with me.
The two alpaca skeins were on sale.
So Monday, I am piecing at the kitchen table and I notice a bird going in and out of one of the houses. Do you notice the big hole. Some animal clawed the house trying to get in. I wanted to take the house down because it is so gross looking. I guess I will have to wait until the end of summer now.

February's Report

I can't believe how much of February has slipped away! AJ was away for Super Bowl weekend and I worked up a sweat quilting and knitting. I dragged out UFOs.

Christmas quilt that needs borders and table runner that needs to be put together
Still working on organizing. Binding is on Barrett' s quilt
Even worked on organizing my yarn
Managed to get 4 table runners ready to quilt
Pieced together some of AJ's Ravens quilt
Finished Anne Marie's hat and boot cuffs
Things to do for February:
1. I have the binding on Barrett's quilt and hand sewn. I need to embroider (by hand) my initials and year -- and fix some boo boos
2. Work on fingerless mitts and scarf for Anne Marie - one mitt done
3. Quilt all 4 table runners
4. Do the place mats on my Avante!!!
