So many Linus blankets! Go you!!! Glad the shower curtain is working out. Great prizes for both groups too. The lady bug is so cute. I've never seen that before. I'm so happy with the way the X Files quilt is looking, already planning on how I'm going to quilt this! Can't wait to see what the new fav things block is too! Must get the buttons done before next week.

Linus was Saturday, so it's on my mind! :)

The prizes for this year have been really fun, I am very pleased about that.

Yay, I'm glad you're happy with your project. That means a lot to me!

That is some really awesome quilting on the pod quilts. Absolutely beautiful from Sarah.
The log cabin Linus is also lovely.

She really went wild with the quilting. I'm so glad I gave those two to her for quilting!

She did great work on that POD. Really neat the way she wrote on the book spines!

I never would have even thought of adding an insert in a fitted sheet. GO you! Glad the the curtain is working out too.

Xfiles is so much fun. Really need to get cracking on my other blocks!

I am still behind a blanket for the year, too. I know I'll catch up at some point, not sure if it will be March though.

Sarah S.'s quilting keeps getting better and better and I'm really pleased to get to share her work. :)

I bought the deeper sheets from Overstock and they were nice for about a month and then they started to pill. VERY annoying since they weren't cheap, but I couldn't return them. I've got about three more sets of sheets I'm going to do enlarge. ALSO, I forgot to say that I used a top sheet that didn't have a fitted sheet to go with it anymore for the insert. Super happy about that project!

X-Files! It's crazy we only have a month left...

Two blankets a month seems doable, but it kicked my butt last year without crochet. Seriously considering taking advantage of a fleece sale and making a few extra blankets so I can get a little bit ahead...

That was my plan for the fleece this month. I have managed to get one cut so far but not the holes in it yet. I'm starting to think maybe a serged one will be the way to go. I still have some narrower remnants. And I'm only trying to get 1 done each month and I'm having trouble.

I just realized I'm expecting fleece in the mail, so I may wait on that. *rubs hands excitedly*

Serged has been my go to for a while. I've used up some really crazy thread that way, too!

WE CAN DO THIS.

I had forgotten just how much stuff you squeeze into your TTMT videos!

I just love that log cabin linus quilt - so much love

I make a list during the week so I will (hopefully!) not forget anything I really want to share. That makes it oodles easier to remember what to talk about.

The log cabin was lovely to work on. The blocks were beautifully made and being able to use my m-i-l's sewing machine (the first time I've been able to bring myself to do so) was also a good feeling.

Cute apron - fun kitchen fabric.

The Linus quilts are great. Love that quilting detail!

The sheet reminds me of a layer cake :D (Great idea and execution though!)

Thanks, I love my fun apron!

The sheet has been on a week (and gone through the wash once) and is still awesome. I will definitely be altering the rest of the ones I have.
