Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Thursday 28 February 2013

Newfo and getting it done challenge.

It's the last day of February. I'm not sure if I'm glad time is going fast, or sad that time is going so fast. I had 4 things on my getting it done list for February.

1. Keep up with Grandmother's Choice Votes for women block of the month. This is done.

2. Start a Newfo at Gail's sew-in day. This is done. I started this pattern called Thanksgiving, designed by Judy Martin, from her book Patchwork Among Friends.

3. Get moved. Unfortunately, this hasn't happened yet.
4. Get unpacked and settled. We've moved some stuff over while getting uncluttered here, so I suppose I could say that this is a partial complete.

On the positive side of the moving front, the pictures and the "virtual tour" for the house listing were done today. While Jen, our real estate agent was here today helping us set up for the pictures, she gave an excellent suggestion...... hire someone to do the final cleaning of the house so that everything is spotless and shines, before the listing goes up next Friday, March 8th. I'm all for that, so we have a cleaning crew coming in a week from today. What a load off our backs that will relieve!!

For my goals for March
1. I need to get caught up with my waiting list of customer quilts
2. Get a sewing area set up at the apartment.
3. Make another trip to IKEA in order to pick up needed furniture to set up the new sewing area.
4. Sew something, anything, maybe pick something from my Newfo list on my side bar.

There, those sounds doable. I'm going to link this post up to Judy's Getting it done post at Patchwork Times and Barbara's Newfo link up at Cat Patches. And then, I'm going to make myself a cup of coffee, and get started on goal #1 by loading Christine/s quilt.


  1. These are soooo pretty. I love the fabrics you've chosen. Thanks for linking up today.

  2. Oh I love the Thanksgiving blocks!! The circles of leaves can hold so much meaning.

  3. Great quilts - you got a lot accomplish, moving, packing, unpacking, quilting, etc...

  4. Wow ... your GC blocks are coming along so beautifully! As are you Thanksgiving blocks!! You did good on your goals -- especially considering that #3 is kind of out of your control!!! :)

  5. How tiny are those leaf blocks? Beautiful, if tiny. =) Congratulations on the Brackman blocks. I did the Civil War last year and couldn't do another one weekly this year. You're going great!

  6. With all you have going on, I'm surprised you have anything new started! I love those Thanksgiving blocks - very neat! ~Jeanne

  7. With all you have going on, I'm surprised you have anything new started! I love those Thanksgiving blocks - very neat! ~Jeanne

  8. I love those Judy Martin blocks! Keeping up with the Grandmother's Choice is great - the quilt is coming along beautifully. Good luck with this month's goals. (moving UGH!)

  9. Love the Thanksgiving blocks! It must be difficult to get anything done at all in the middle of a move!

  10. Sounds like you have a lot going on at once. Love the leaves blocks they are so pretty.

  11. Hope the new space gets finished soon so that you can finally move in. I know you are more than ready to unpack and get going.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
