February Round Up

February was a good month for me to finish a few big projects.

At the beginning of the month I finished a Pineapple Quilt (only took 4 years!).

I started this handspun tunic early last year by cleaning and preparing the wool. Spun the yarn over the summer, and started knitting it at the beginning of September.

I also finished knitting a hat out of some handspun yarn that I had dyed with indigo (this one had been my take-along/car knitting project).

I was really pleased to have started and finished weaving some fabric for my Mom in the month (especially since we were away for a week). 7 yards of fabric! 

I used up five of my orphan blocks (not the orphan block quilt I want to eventually make, but nice to use up some of the blocks) to make a table mat for my cousin (we stayed with her in Quebec). I am counting this one towards my WOOFA challenge too.

I had a couple of little finishes this month too-

 a tiny needle felted mouse
and a Valentine pincushion. 

This month I completed all my monthly goals for OMG, worked on two of my WOOFA Challenge projects, and finished 7 projects - 4 counting towards OPAM.

All the best!♥︎

The pineapple quilt alone should qualify for extra, extra bonus points. Again I’m awed with how beautiful it is in your (maybe) brass bed. Whatever the bed material is, they ‘were made to go together’. Every time I passed the bedroom doorway, my breath would be taken away. Giant congratulations. And yes everyone, spring is coming. Snow is only covering about one third of our yard and all of the woods surrounding. From Maine and anticipating my daffodils early April. Yeah!!

Your Pineapple quilt is oh so good. And bed size. A lot of sewing to accomplish it and well worth plugging away over four years to get it done.

Well done - that's an amazing number of finishes for your shortened month! Love the wee needle felted mouse! I'm looking forward to (hopefully) seeing your mum's fabric sewn up!
