Fresh Sewing Day

It feels like February was a month of playing catch-up, constantly racing those deadlines. But now that it's Fresh Sewing Day, it seems like I've accomplished more than I realized. Of course, that retreat was a huge help!

There were blocks galore, including my own sample blocks for February in FAITH Circle and for March in the Mid-Century Modern bee. I'm kind of excited about both of these quilts! And then February's Lucky Stars block was a treat as usual.

Plus (no pun intended) I made a dozen more x and + blocks to add to my stack. I'm now up to 39!

On retreat, I discovered Noodlehead's Open Wide Zippered Pouch {great fun!} and Sweet Heart purses by Simple Things. I also completed hubby's Christmas stocking and another Mod Angles Cushion that my mom happily claimed. AND I made a couple more Triple-Zip Pouches during the very successful and fun Triple-Zip Along! Still can hardly believe we made 204(!) pouches in less than three weeks!

And last, but certainly not least, I finished one lone but lovely quilt!

Three of these February finishes are FAL projects, which feels great! One more to go! Honestly, it feels good to face a fresh month!

Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day!
