March Roundup

So, it's the end of March...how did that happen??? It was crazy busy, I must admit, and I got a lot done, even if it wasn't what I had intended to do....funny how that happens. March was all about the Madness around here, although not the basketball kind. I finished a bunch of hangers on projects, and published some patterns, and did lots and lots of paperwork (because it is that time of year you know)....it's been super exciting to see some of the new fabrics that are starting to pop up, and get new yardage in for the shop, and to start to see the paper renderings of the fabrics that we will see at Market. There are a couple of lines that are outside of my standard repertoire that I might break down and order.....even if they only get used by me....sad right??? But they are SO cute!!! But we can talk about that in another post, next week, today is about progress against goals and accountability for all of the things that I need to get done......

I had pretty big plans for this year, somehow they have morphed a bit, but I am generally okay with that since I was apparently both more and less efficient than I imagined....

The goals as stated at the new year are in black, amendments (changes/additions, etc) are in blue, and status is red....

1. Captain's Wheel complete and sent to the quilter
2. Celtic Wave (Queen) - Piece Along to start in mid-February! QAL in process, Bag #3 finished, assembly started yesterday.
3. Flower's for My Wedding Ring - Got all of my fabrics picked, my backgrounds cut out, and am ready to get started with piecing.
4. Scrappy Trip (65 pairs prepped), 2 blocks finished

Last month I mentioned an intended big move, and that is indeed happening in April, so I suspect the next month should be fairly quiet on the quilty front, but I promise to update you on how it's going!

How are you doing on your quilty goals for the year???

Happy Quilting!!!
