You'll notice I'm woefully late in putting up my "look what I did in February" post. I had a plan for February. An ambitious plan. A plan that somewhere along the line went dreadfully awry.
Since I don't want to accept personal responsibility for my own shortcomings I'm blaming February for only having 28 days, the bag that got stuck in my head and wouldn't leave until I made it and the fact I wandered off and cut out a bajillion triangles when I should have been quilting for my lack of progress on my list last month.
And since I'm all about focussing on the positive I'm not going to re-cap what I didn't get done because the "didn't get finished" list is longer than the "Nailed it" list and that's just too embarrassing. Thanks goodness the girls helped me pull all the bits of paper out of those damn hexies because left to my own devices I'd still be pulling frigging papers out at Christmas.
So let's just say I had a 50% success rate for February finishes and move on to March shall we? Here's what I'm hoping to get done.
1)Re-do that blasted lounge chair. The fabric finally arrived yesterday. I went to buy a tack remover from the hardware store last weekend and they looked at me as if I was a crazy lady but that may have had something to do with the fact that I had a tack hammer in the other hand. Or perhaps I looked like I was going to batter them to death with the tack hammer when they said they didn't have a tack remover? Whatever . The chair needs to be finished and it's going to be a bitch of a job. Maybe I'll save that for Easter weekend. It might stop me from swearing so much given the significance of the holiday and all.
|Auditioning the fabric. It would have been too bad if I wasn't happy with it because Mr. P almost died when I told him how much I spent on this lot.|
2) Finish the last 10 shirt blocks. Words cannot convey how utterly sick I am of those blocks at the moment.
3) Make a baby quilt. I dobbed myself in to make this for one of Sister of Pyjamas friends who is expecting. I figure a baby quilt wont take all that long to put together...famous last words?
4) Finish Superheroes 1 quilt. Yep -I've spent a month procrastinating on the quilting. I'm so ashamed I'm not even going to show a picture.
5)Put together superheroes 2 top for Little P . All the blocks are done, and I've bought border fabric so that should be an easy job. And again Im tempting fate with over confidence!
I've learned my lesson about over ambitious lists so this months has far less on it . Maybe I'll be able to get everything crossed off that way. The big list thing doesn't seem to have been wildly successful for me so far this year. And ummm- yeah ...I've yet to finish a quilt for 2013.
We've got an impromptu family brunch here this morning so I'm off to make coffee cake and cut fruit for fruit salad. You're welcome to drop in if you like . I always over cater. This afternoon's plan is to tackle that long avoided quilting!
