How I Spent Part of my Time in March!

March was great weather wise this year.  No snow or ice--very unlike winter. I loved it!!!!

We had some big losses--Dan's sister, Mae, a college friend, and a dear woman who was like my sister. I guess this is par for the course when you get to be our age,

I did get some blocks completed.
First off, I worked on my Farm Girl Blocks and got 14 finished.

I also completed 8 blocks from the Splendid Sampler.

I finished 8 Broken Dishes which will go into a Quilt of Valor. They are very scrappy!

I took a workshop our guild sponsored from my friend Raija Salomaa using her pattern, Kimberling in January. I finished one block in March. 

Our Guild had a baby quilt Workshop in March and I found some partially completed blocks  and finished them and got the top done. 3 of them were completed and I finished another 9 to make the top.

I made 2 mug rugs using one of the block patterns from Splendid Sampler.

Last, but not least I participated in a workshop at Pieces and Patches in which we colored on fabric. I got one block done. This is a self portrait!

That is a total of 43 blocks! I now have a grand total of 218 for the year so far.

Well, now it might be a good idea to something made out of all those blocks this month.

I also spent some time with the grands.
This is Grey all dressed up at Mae's funeral.

Hazel made some crowns and also sewed some triangles together.

Ash and Eowyn wanted to learn to embroider and really did a great job.

At the end of the month we went to our favorite park in Fayetteville, Wilson Park and played in the castle.

  2. Wow, Kathy!! Congrats on getting sew much done! Love all your blocks!

  3. I can't understand how productive you are - very admirable! Love all the blocks!
