March Roundup

My 6 year blogiversary was March 9. You'd think I'd remember such a momentous day, but I didn't.

Anyway, I thought I would do a mid-March update of my goals.

1 - finish KP
Done.  No pictures until after the wedding.

2 - finish Blue Elephants.

3 - make pillow cases for the boys.
Done. I haven't given them to the boys yet.  I showed them to their dad and he said to wait.

and though not on the list, I made some new covers for the two small cushions on our couch. I had made the old covers, bu they were showing their age, plus these match much better.
Susan (Canadian Abroad) gave me the idea for doing them in corduroy. I also used zippers. I learned a little more about zippers, but I sure have a lot more to learn; I think next time I'll use a pattern so I can do it right.

4 - work on duvet cover (this is dependent on my dear friend Jane ...) nope.

5 - work with scraps left over from the time quilt (need to finish the quilt top)
I made two blocks, which I have to press and see what I think of them.  Since I didn't make a commitment to more than this, I consider it done -- I didn't say I'd finish it this month.  That's for April I think.

6 - make a sock monkey
Got the batting for this ... it's a start.

7 - get one yard of fabric for Grinch quilt
Done. Ordered from Fat Quarter Shop (and received).


8 - buy one stocking stuffer for the girls (almost .. got three out of the five I wanted to get)

9 - take craftsy class (probably paper piecing) -- nope.

I'll make my April goals and post them early next week.

I like your corduroy pillows. I've never tried to make a cover with a zipper.

Ooh I love your corduroy pillows.
You got most of your March goals completed!. I'm pleased there's no photos of sock monkeys!

Did you find the socks for the sock monkey?
I never found them.

Those pillow cases for the boys are fun. They are sure to love those. Your new couch pillows look very nice. I've not sewed a zipper in ages, I'd have to look up how to do it!

Happy Birthday, C.S.!!
