Monthly wind-down:  review goals
It's hard to believe we are in the last week of March. How have you been doing on your sewing challenge? I haven't spent as much time sewing at the machine as I would have liked, but I've been able to get quite a bit done and I've spent more time at the machine than I usually do.

One of my goals for this month was getting these four winter themed stitcheries put together in a wall hanging. Unfortunately, this one is going in the hall of shame. There are so many mistakes and they started with how I trimmed down the stitcheries. I've spent so much time on it that I'm going to finish it and enjoy it for what it is. It has been quite the learning experience. I forget how impatient I am to get things done and the end result is all the mistakes I make. But as I said, I'll finish it and move on to the next one. They can't all be perfect, can they ? :(

On a more positive note :) 
Block 4, Bethlehem is coming along. This is the first of eight musicians. My goal is to finish stitching this one by the end of the week. I'm working on the third musician.

And the A.D.D. has kicked in again :) 
Another goal was a quilt from one of my Tilda books. I got side-tracked and drew off patterns for several projects in the book I want to work on for spring . . . yes, this spring :) 

And I wonder why the UFO pile keeps growing . . .

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a creative day.

It has been a very long month. Crunch times are what have made is so successful. I was recently reminded: quality not quantity. Hold on to that :)
