1. Completed the TIF challenge with my lilies and fabric vase
2. Made my Fairy Postcards ( by the skin of my teeth, LOL)
3. Worked on two UFOs (homespun lap quilt and Thangles blocks) almost to the point of completion
4. Read one book and I'm 3/4 of the way through another
5. Have really tried to use only items in my stash before buying new stuff. It's amazing (and scary at the same time YIKES!) what I have pulled out of that closet.
I have done quilty stuff on my blog at least once a week, I've definitely tried new things with the felted flowers and the fabric vase. The only thing I think I've missed is Keeping Christmas all through the Year. Just didn't have the time! So for February, I will try to get to a Christmas project.
There now my housekeeping is done~
Now, as part of the TIF challenge, we are supposed to track our progress on our blog. For February, the color scheme did nothing for me but the concept theme is interesting.
What do you remember?
Sharon B. talked about things that she remembered as a child that are either obsolete or have changed dramatically. I started pondering this and thought about how we played as children of the 60's and 7o's. I thought about playing jumprope (double-dutch and chinese jumprope) and hopscotch, and dodge ball. Then I thought about the great board games we had. I remember every Christmas there was one game that you just had to have, like Hands Down, Go to the Head of the Class, Mousetrap, Ants in the Pants, Sorry, Trouble, Don't break the Ice, and of course Twister! Kids "now a days" don't know how to play board games, everything is video or TV oriented. It's kind of sad :( Anyway, I think that my piece will be a quilt about the size of a board game which reflects those games. I'm still twirling it around in my head but images are forming.
