Playing Catch-up

I am now having to catch up on posting my UFO Challenge, OPAM and just sharing.
First I want to say I had a wonderful birthday with friends and family and wanted to thank everyone who sent their birthday greetings to me, thank you. That is what made the day special, and to think I am now 54 years young, it's just mind boggling. I guess I enjoy it so much my body decided I needed to get grounded and so now I have a head cold. Felt like poop yesterday. Better today, so now I have a list of things to do, so let's get started.

1.  I finished sewing my Hunter Star top, now done. 
This is #1 on my list.

 I used Deb Tucker's ruler Petite Rapid Fire Hunter Star. I made the 6" blocks (circled in green) and when you put 4 of those blocks together you get a 12" block (circled in red). This is what I had originally planned but once I did get it sewn together I going to think about maybe adding another row. I just don't know, I'll sleep on it.  

This month (March) UFO Challenge is # 8, that's my embroiderer Birdie Quilt. I get pictures of that and post in my next post.

Then for OPAM list I did get a few things done. It just seem like I did not get much done this month

 1. Knitted scarf is done in a netted fabric that was cut in 6" strip you can get that is rolled in a ball like yarn.
I made this while traveling to the show last week. This one and the next one. I really like this material use. I lost the label of this product to share. I'm going to go to the shop next week so I will give an update on the name, sorry.


 2. Knitted Scarf
 Very spring like are they not

3. This is a pincushion that was on Riley Blake's blog (her button is on the right side) that she is doing on a weekly pincushion. My first attempted, not bad. She has on there this week Chicken Pincushions. I'm going to try those next.

So this make 3 items for my OPAM.

Well I off to the sewing room and work on my recovery, that will make me feel better to get something done.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
