A Funny Thing……
Funny thing happened in February…….it slipped by! Holy smokes! I think that was the fastest month ever! I had planned to do more posts in February but then it was over. Well, there went that plan. (Now it is Mid-March and I started this post at least a week ago!)
Anyway people, moving on…….
We had sewing Saturday the second Saturday of the month and I made this cute St. Patties Day Wall hanging. I saw this Irish Knot somewhere and decided to recreate it.
I had the annual February Quilt Retreat with all “The Girls”. My quilting partners in Crime, co-quiltspirators, ok that’s all I’ve got.
I completed 3 tops and started a 4th. Three of them were my own design that I came up with while at the retreat.
I absolutely love the fox in the center panel of this quilt! I also made this small, simple wall hanging with this same fabric.
Funny thing about this fabric line. I had bought the individual animal panels like you see in the second picture along with 2 charm packs and a little yardage for binding and backing. Then some time later, months, I bought the fox panel from the top one and another charm pack or two. I ended up having some yardage and 4 charm packs of this fabric line. Guess I liked it!
I also threw together this little snowman/snowflake wall hanging. I think it turned out cute.
I also started another one out of some bee fabric. I will share that one when I get it together. In other news…..
My First Healing Quilt will be ready to go out next week! I am so excited! I can not wait for this program to get started! For those of you not in the know. I have started a Healing Quilts research program that is for research for a future program I plan to start. I am creating lap size Healing Quilts (Quilts infused with Healing Energy and Prayers) and sending them and a journal out to people with chronic illness/cancer who want to participate. All they have to do is use the quilt for a minimum of 30 minutes every day and HONESTLY record the information asked in the journal. When 4 weeks is up, they just have to send the journal back to me. Simple! They get a free lap quilt out of it for their efforts, just by being honest and taking a bit of time out of their day to record what they are noticing is happening.
I am so excited! The journals are ready to go out. The label is going on the first quilt and ready to go!! The second healing quilt I should have back from the quilter’s next week. Then binding and label and out it can go!
Well, that is all I have for right now. Seems like it condenses so quickly for such activity!
