This month flew by. February is a short month. And I was sick for a week!
On the plus side, we enjoyed a visit from my Aunt Bertha this month, we did a little shopping, some pool and hot tub time, and just enjoyed vacation time together. I had a productive month at the sewing machine. And I had a birthday! All in all, it was a very good month.
Star Blocks –This was meant to be a hand-piecing project, but I found out (rather quickly) that I don’t like hand-piecing these little 3″ blocks. I fiddled around with making them by sewing machine, and I’m quite pleased with the result. It takes me about an hour to do each one. Thirty-nine done…a jillion to go.
HSTs — I needed almost 50 more half-square triangles for my scrappy quilt project. I got them done in February, and now I’ve started constructing the quilt top. This is a HST challenge, so I’m not sharing a photo yet.
GOALS FOR NEXT MONTH:
- Finish the last seven basket blocks for my Ruffled Roses quilt
- Make more stars!
- Prep a wool project so I have some hand work ready to go
Gifted Yarn — Aunt Bertha left me with some sumptuous Malabrigo Arroyo yarn in purple. Project to be determined. I also purchased some yarn so I’ll have a knitting project for some car time next month. It will be a cowl.
We plan to take a little North Carolina day trip to the Callabash area, but it looks like that will be in March.
I’m not getting much photography time in, but there are a few more pictures in the Gallery section of this page. Look at the top of the right-hand column. We have had some really pretty days.
Continuing with our Thursday Movie Days, we saw one movie in February:
Stan & Ollie:If you grew up with Laurel & Hardy movies, you’d probably enjoy this movie, which covers some of their later years. The actors were so believable as Laurel and Hardy, it adds to the appeal of the film.
- Mr. & Mrs. Murder on Acorn (binge watched!)
- We re-watched almost all the Doc Martin episodes on Acorn
- I’ve introduced Jim to The Brokenwood Mysteries on Acorn, and it’s been a while so they are almost new to me.
So another month has slipped away. Changing my blog’s format and purpose into sort of a project diary has helped me focus on specific tasks I want to accomplish each month. Thank you for stopping by !
