March Goals

I can't believe it's March already!  This year has been flying by. 

I was able to finish my Pillow Talk Swap pillow this weekend.  I embroidered a little camper pattern from Sublime Stitching but I don't know what I was thinking and cut it wrong when I was cutting it down for the pillow.  I would have started crying except my husband and MIL were in the room with me.  I'll chalk it up to stress.  Well I wasn't about to start embroidering that over again and I have been interested in the granny square quilts on Flickr.  I started fussy cutting some Flea Market Fancy and Heather Ross as the centers and went from there.  I will be mailing it to my partner tonight. 

I have some pretty lofty goals for March and hopefully by putting them in writing I will accomplish more of them.

  • 2 Pillowcases (birthday gift) - goal date 3/12
  • Jamie Dress - goal date 3/15
  • Bind the Dinosaur quilt
  • Quilt & Bind the Duck quilt
  • Messenger Bag for a gift - goal date 3/15
  • Granny Square Quilt from this tutorial
If I have any extra time here are some goal I already have for April
  • Circle of Geese blocks for 4x5 bee - due 4/15
  • Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild Pillow Swap (have an idea already) - due 4/19
  • Birthday gift for my MIL
That should keep me fairly busy.
