February Review

Well, here in my part of the UK, we seem to have missed the big storms that have battered our European neighbours, and March is coming in like a lamb ... and the lighter mornings are making me feel so much better, fingers crossed for a great Spring!

February is always a busy month for me, although it has got easier in recent years, as I'm no longer working in an industry which scheduled three major trade shows in the late January/February period. I still have to fit in three celebrations, including my birthday, and of course, the start of the new University semester! However, I managed to do a reasonable number of my goals:

Sew charms onto:

  • Bee Joyful - done!
  • Bee Merry - done!


Start and Finish:
  • February Biscornu - done!
  • 28 Innocent Smoothie Hats - 18 done!
  • One quilt block- not done. I have a huge mental block when it comes to this quilt...

Frog or Finish:
  • Colonnade Wrap - done! - well, the frogging part!

Frame or have Framed:
  • Bathroom Plaque - not done
  • Alphabet Sampler - not done
  • Bee My Honey Bee - not done
  • One to celebrate my birthday! - not done. I need to catch up on mailing the other giveaways I've had before I have another one...
  •  £20 for the MS Trust - not done. Donations for the month totalled £8.00, for which I'm grateful. I had secretly hoped for more, as I sent out over 60 copies of the Valentine Biscornu pattern and over 25 copies of the February Biscornu one, as well as some other designs, but I guess times are hard, and I mustn't get greedy.
Not scheduled, but done:
  • FTT Exchange Piece
  • February Block Flip It - Lizzie*Kate (Year of the UFO)
  • Happy Bunny Bunny Day - The Trilogy (Year of the UFO)
  • Blue Tit - Cross Stitcher (Year of the UFO)
  • Liberty Print Miniature - Liberty (Year of the UFO)
  • The White House - Rowandean (Year of the UFO)
  • Holly Berry Sampler - Bent Creek (Year of the UFO)
  • Country Cottage - Jolly Red (Year of the UFO)
  • E is for Embroidery - Prairie Schooler 
Some of the above only needed buttons, or a few stitches, but it looks impressive, doesn't it? :o) They will be blog fodder for the next week or so ...

Framed/taken to the framer:
  • Wooly Zipper - Bent Creek (Year of the UFO) (Framed)
  • Hearts Sampler - Heart in Hand (Year of the UFO) (Framed)
  • Do Well The Little Things - Moira Blackburn - taken to the framer for re-framing.

Onwards and upwards...
