February Fail

Yikes I've got a post to write! I think I'll jump into the link up for Fiber of All Sorts and A Lovely Year of Finishes just under the wire. [Edited: Oops, I had to ask for her to remove my link because I didn't actually finish my goal...dang it.] I just cannot believe how busy this semester has been so far, and sadly how little sewing I have done recently. Unfortunately my February goal did not get met, though I have made some progress on my rainbow baby quilt. The one picture I have is in yucky lighting though, so I'd rather show you something else ;) Instead here is a photo from Jessi's Flickr page showing an amazing photo of the car trash collector I sewed up for her since her birthday is in February as part of the Handmade Birthday Club 2014. I was rather pleased with myself, sending off this cute bag made with adjustments to Jeni's wonderful drawstring bag tutorial. Now I hope I can sew up something great for March too. Thanks for stopping by!

Totally adorable car junk bag for #handmadebirthdayclub2014 from @sew_into_my_20s !!!  So cute!  Prob too cute for car trash!  #makingbirthdayshappen

February Goal

Yikes this is cutting it a little close! But I do have something new to show, and it's actually my February goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. It's also one of my goals in The Library Project over at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts. My plan is to piece, quilt and bind this baby quilt, in a wonderfully rainbow fashion. Maybe I'll have to get crazy with a rainbow binding but I guess you'll have to wait and see!

New Baby Quilt

And I'm perfectly right on time for Needle and Thread Thursdays over at My Quilt Infatuation. You should have a look around and see all of the beautiful things people are sewing up!
