March is Here

It's hard to believe that the month of March is here.
First of all, today would have been my dad's 86th birthday.
Miss you, Dad!
I received my lovely One World One Heart gift from JoanieBolognie.blogspot.com
It is a handmade album full of eclectic ephemera.
Isn't it cute?

We also have two grandsons celebrating birthdays this month, a quick trip to Arizona for religious celebrations with our eldest son and his family, then a visit from that same son here in California
 and a vacation with friends.
I hope to be able to post about all these things, but only if time permits
 and the internet is available
 and not too expensive on our vacation.
I am hesitant to start a quilt because I really have no time to sew this month
 but felt the need to make two quick projects this weekend.
A few days ago I posted a list of projects that I have planned 
and warned you there would be changes.
Sure enough, I already have changes.,
with two projects completed.

1. Hexagon Park by Camille Roskelley made with Giddy
2. Fruit and Vegetable printed fat quarters
3. Square One using Petite Ecole
    4. Placemats using Java Panel by Moda fabrics
5. Misc mug rugs made with Java
6. A quilt called Les Calanques (I bought the fabric in Nimes, France several years ago).
7. Glory Garden Flag
8.   ½ yard each of 7 fabrics from Urban Owls by Kaufman fabrics
9. Brown and aqua fabric for a market bag Completed 2/27/11 Made for a Facebook giveaway.

10. 7 fat quarters of navy and white fabrics bought in Amsterdam years ago.
11. 9 fat quarters of muted blues, browns and yellows also purchased in Amsterdam.
  1.  A Central Park jelly roll
  2. Blessings kit by Quilt-n-Piece
  3.  Madeleine’s Lemonade Stand kit
  4.  A quilt of the month called All Around the Town. I’ve made one square, but it’s major applique and I need to know I can take my time with this one and not have to make it all at once.
  5. SINGLE GIRL QUILT pattern that I love but no fabric has spoken to me yet for this one.
  6. Hooked on Hankies panel and yardage for my mom
  7. Construction panel and yardage for a little boy
  8. I also want to use that box of scraps and design some sort of original scrap quilt.
  9.  A pattern for a really cute bag
  10. Buttercup table runner and placemats by Fig Tree Quilts added 2/28/11
  11. a large beach bag made with Batiks for my friend, Debi Completed 2/28/11
  12. shhhh! It's a surprise!
