It feels great to be back at using these overview posts! This month, I wanted to finish the following projects:
- Scandibee February blocks – Deadline ASAP > Done 18.3. Blogged.
- Scandibee March blocks – Deadline 31.3. > Done 31.3. Blogged.
- Blog about Scandibee January blocks – Deadline 31.3. > Done 20.3. Blogged.
- Pencil case for dad – Deadline 31.3. > Postponed because of other small projects. Oops…
- Pencil case for sister – Deadline 31.3. > Postponed because of other small projects. Oops…
I also finished these:
- Wrote about the Christmas mug-rug swap, both the Happy Hexagon Trivet made for Sigrun and the lovely mug rug that Stina made for me.
- Made another fabric palette, No. 10.
- Started and finished a 1-hour basket for storage of ironing-/pressing-related stuff.
These projects I wanted to make progress on in the following way:
- MQG Riley Blake fabric challenge: Yoga mat bag – Start drafting how to best use the fabrics > Have decided to do some kind of improv panel on top of a buckety kind of base. Will consult Lucie Summer’s “Quilt Improv” book (see below).
- Tokyo Subway Map Quilt embroidery – Correct the support line locations and finalise colours on pattern > Postponed, want to make storage gear for the embroidery stuff first.
- Triangle Patchwork Box Pouch – Buy zippers of right length and kind (to make four pouches) > Will make only one, and it has been postponed to make way for more important projects.
These new projects were also made progress on, in that I:
- Got back in the A Lovely Year of Finishes game, this time for 2015.
- Introduced the MQG Riley Blake fabric challenge.
- Sewed a pin cushion, which now needs filling.
- Started a secret project and pondered drawing. In the same post, I revealed my plans, including progress, on a bag for a cutting mat.
It’s wonderful to regain energy, is all I can say. And it doesn’t hurt to have functioning tools, either, of course.
