It seems like I mostly spin my wheels and don't get too much done, but I did manage to get the crocheted afghan finished that I started in January, so that makes another completion for February. I did a lot of it while on the road traveling to and from California. The rest was done while watching TV. It was an easy pattern, and since I hadn't done anything that big for many years, it was a good pattern to start with.
I am absolutely no good at just sitting and watching without doing something, so now it will need to be something else.
This other picture is of my Mariner's Compass after attaching the "halo." The white center is just a reflection from the flash, I guess. I haven't appliqued on the center yet. It is the same fabric as the triangles in the halo. This has turned into pretty much a design-as-you-go project. I have also squared it up since I took the picture. I'll make another border. I'm thinking it will end up somewhere between 36 and 40 inches square. At least that is my current thought.
I also put the borders on another Project Linus quilt today. It is not as lively and pretty as I had hoped, but hopefully it will make some child happy. I'll post a picture of it another time - probably after I sandwich, quilt and bind it.
We got word that a niece is getting married near San Francisco toward the end of March, so that will mean another trip to CA. It also means I won't have as much sewing time in March, so I'll have to get my tailbone in gear before we go.
I sure enjoy looking at other folks' blogs, and feel like I still have so much to learn. The blogs are just such an inspiration.
