February Wrap Up

What are your sewing New Year’s resolutions? Did you make any?

My resolutions for the sewing New Year were...

  • Get back to using my sewing super powers for charity on a regular basis. I’ve let that slip and really miss that part of sewing.
  • Help the UFO’s, unfinished fabric objects, take flight out of here.
  • Get my bitty scrap bins under control.
  • Use my Go! cutter more. After all santa did give it to me for a reason.
  • Add monthly themed posts: monkey or doll tutorials, EQ tutorials, Island Batik Ambassador project.
  • Get back to a  monthly newsletter with a free design.
  • Add an end of month round up post.
  • Make new projects of course!!! Unfortunately some will be top secret for a while.

So looking back at February I wasn’t perfect but I did pretty good. 

roundup feb

  • 12 small kennel quilts were sent to Louisiana and 24 donated locally.
    If you need a great sewing charity come join the TQPM Small Kennel Quilt Team.

  • The Island Batik Ambassador boxes arrived. Galentine’s Day projects were created with a free tutorial for pennie pockets.
  • A Day of the Dead table runner was sent on it’s way from the UFO pile.
  • Dusted off my Go! cutter and cut some of my scraps into binding strips and I spy blocks.
  • Posted a monkey ballerina tutorial.

great month! (I thought I shared my post on FB, maybe I didn't?)
oh, and if you want to join my GO QAL, might give you a reason to bust out the cutter and cut up some scraps!?
