Goal report March 4, 2017 and spring is just around the corner . . . ???

Spring is just around the corner ????


Not what it looked like on Friday !!
We ended up with about 5 inches between midnight and 10 a.m.
This was the visibility all morning . . . pretty much non-existent.


Goals for the week ending March 4, 2017

1. Redwork (UFO - 2015)

- sash last two blocks - Done


- figure out next step - Done

 

I chose my fabric and started sewing the final border together.



2. Sheep

- work on next block - Done

- plan alternate blocks - Done

 

Since there are hearts throughout the blocks, I found this pattern for patchwork hearts to use for the alternates. I just have to increase the size a bit to bring them up to the "sheep" blocks. I've already done that and I'll use what Valentine's fabrics I have and round out with the leftovers from the "Redwork".


I found this print on the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby. It has a pretty nice hand and will help to break up the rows.


3. Easter Bin (UFO - unknown date)
- see what's in it - Done, I've gone through it.

- pick something to make Sort of done - I have some drawings and a rough sketch of a design. I'll try to do more with it this week. 

No pictures :(

4. "He is Risen" (UFO)

- pull bin, get started - I started . . . pictures later.

5. "Welcome"
- choose fabric


I chose this linen. It's in the "tan" family. So I guess you would say "natural", since it's linen.

- draw off pattern - I didn't get this done . . . 


but I did start to pull some of the floss. This is going to be a really big project.

1. Redwork - UFO 2015
