March Journaling

Quilting has happened and a little knitting. I've perfected my cobbler recipe.
This week I celebrated 50! I'm claiming the whole week a celebration and I'm on spring break.

I also added another latch on my sewing desk.

Journal - March 4 - 9

I've written this post three time using Blog Press. It really doesn't like to interface with my camera! We will see if this post works.

I've almost finished Charmed Garden. The extra fabric arrived and I thought I was almost finished. I noticed I needed another border of white but I had cut down to my last 2" strip making the first round of borders. The fabric had been in my stash forever and no way of finding more. I dug through stash and found another white on white in the same tone, so I'm going with it.

I was out of true white on white fabric and I needed it for my Suburbs quilt. I made a run to Joann's. I will start cutting strips this week. I can't wait until Uncle Sam visits me and these last three quilts can go to the long arm quilter. :)

I've also been doing a little knitting. But again, BlogPress isn't playing nice. I'll post photos later.

Journal - March 3

Snow day and I've spent it quilting.

I spent part of Sunday deciding on four patches and then making quilty snowballs. I've been watching YouTube Missouri Star Quilt Company's tutorials. This is one of their quick charm quilts.

Today, I've made blocks and sashed them. I had to purchase more fabric for the borders and I've decided on a pieced border as shown in the tutorial. I also cut the pieces for my next quilt - Suburb by Cluck Cluck Sew. Can't wait to start on it tomorrow!

Journal - March 1 & 2

This weekend I finally finished up two projects.

It felt like it took all day Saturday to get these borders pressed and measured. Very simple borders and I really need to work on more than slab-oh-border designs.

Sunday was church and cold drive home. The temp dropped 10 degrees on my thirty mile trip. Cold rain fell all afternoon. Icy roads cancelled school for Monday.
