I DID make scrappy pink blocks for four ongoing rainbow scraps projects.
I made a basket of string-pieced heart pins and sent them to dozen quilters to thank them for their support of the Block Lotto site.
Then I used the left-over bits of string fabric to make liberated star blocks for a future to-be-determined project.
I spent a lot of time watching the Olympics coverage on TV in February, which allowed me to finish up the stitching for a pair of large Redwork pillow covers.
BUT ... because I failed to put a single stitch into my designated goal for a Lovely Finish, nor get much beyond creating a pattern for the Tea Towel Challenge, I am feeling pretty pathetic on this last day of the month ...
Can I blame my failures on a retrograde Mercury? It seems as soon as Mercury started moving forward again, I had an idea for something completely different for my Tea Towel challenge quilt–I am still hopeful I will be able to make that happen.
Or maybe my optimism for March is fueled by a return to my routine and a first-thing-in-the-morning coffee? As it turns out, after serving up the best cappuccino that I've ever made, the Goodwill bargain refused to make another. After spending too much time trying to make it work and talking with the manufacturer (who offered to service it for $400), back to Goodwill it went. the experience helped me decide on a replacement, which I did find locally. I'm not sure how a single cup of coffee in the morning can make things feel more ordered and normal around here, but it has. I am ready to march on to March.
