February to do list

February is a busy month in my house. My Sweet and I have our anniversary. Yay. My five year old will be a 6 year old. And there are lots of cousin birthdays thrown in there.

I have to finish a quilt for my soon to be 6 year old. I’m going to be honest and say I’m not in love with it and have put it off because of that. My son picked out the fabric and the pattern. I never let anyone have control of my creative endeavors. But my son convinced me. ‘Cause he is cute like that.

Anyway, it is all cut up and I just need to sit down and do it.

That is all that is on my MUST DO list for the month. I know there are quilters who finish a zillion projects in any given month. I’m not there yet. I do like to start projects and before they are finished, I’m already planning out my next project.

I want to figure out something for my Swoon for my bathroom. Maybe tryout some new fabric. That is ok, because it is already something I am working on, right?

And I would like to make something from the pattern I won from Prairie Point Junction back in 2009 for an ornament I made. Geez, I can’t believe it has been so many years that I have been holding on to that. The pattern is from Bareroots little stitchies #158 Birthday Candle Mat. But I don’t think I want to stitch the words on it. And maybe I’ll sew something with it too. You know, because I can’t make it just like the pattern.

My goal is not to purchase any more fabric, until I have finished one of my UFO’s.

Here is to February.
