February Accomplishments, March Goal

To  borrow a comment from Judy Laquidara, where did February go?  I can't believe it has passed so quickly.  This month had several significant happenings - my oldest grandson turned 11, the second oldest turned 8 and it has been six years since I fell, broke my hip and had a replacement!  All of those things seem like they just happened not nearly that long ago.

Enough - I digress..

My February was good - I got a good bit accomplished!  

I completed my blue and white stars quilt top.  I don't have a good picture of it and will post it later but take my word for it - it is done!!

2012 Buck A Block top assembled.  I love the colors.

Seasonal wall hangings - I finished two (one this afternoon).

Blocks of the Month for guild - I made a couple but not as many as I wanted to.  I will post pictures next month.

I made good progress on the PIF (Pay It Forward) scarf that I am knitting.  It is about half completed.

Bind PIF table runner.  I finished it too.

I finished stitching the letters for the Christmas cross stitch sampler.  Not really picture worthy at this point.

I didn't make any progress on the birthday present or the baby quilt although I did look at the baby quilt fabric.

I cut out and assembled the Girl Scout quilt top in two days.  Once I got started on it, it went very quickly. Of course, it was not a difficult pattern.

Since my daughter nailed me last month for listing more than four goals, I am going to politically correct this month (although I am pleased with all that I accomplished!!).

March Goals 

1.  Complete PIF scarf.

2.  Start adding beads to Christmas cross stitch.

3.  Make the rest of the blocks for Block of the Month.

4.  Start Christmas quilt that will be a present for next Christmas.

I am heading off to a retreat on Sunday with seven of my friends.  We will work, eat, talk, eat, drink, eat, sew and have fun but I plan to get a lot accomplished.

Like the bright fabrics of the girls scout top. How are the monthly goals challenge with Judy working out for you? I miss Judy not having the UFO Challenge as she has had in the past. Your Buck A Block top is really fun. Have a great time at the retreat. Sandi

Sandi, the monthly goals are working out great. Not quite sure why but so far I am doing fairly well. Of course the two projects that I completed on retreat were not on my list for March!!
