This is the project I've been working on for the past month -- mostly on the sewing days at Kris'. It's Bonnie Hunter's Starstruck quilt. I brought it home this week and have started putting it on the design wall. I have the top six blocks sewn together, but whenever I go past the room, I add more parts of blocks. Next I'll pin a few and sew them whenever I get the chance. It's going to be a big quilt, so it'll be awhile before I finish it. But, I am loving it already. I've been meaning to do this quilt for years, and am glad I finally started it.
I've also been doing some applique this month and finished sewing the binding down on this quilt today. It'll be a gift. The pattern was from a magazine that I was going through and tearing out patterns to file and I decided to set it aside and do it before I filed the pattern. I made some changes to the original, some intentional and some not! I noticed after I had the top together and was quilting it that I left out the sashing strips altogether! Oh well, that made it smaller and it worked out okay anyway.
Other accomplishments for February: I've lost about 5 pounds and have managed to exercise at least 5 out of 7 days a week. My fasting glucose still hasn't come down much, so I'll just continue exercising and counting carbs and testing myself.
I did manage to get the guest room closet cleaned out and put back together this month -- hope to do some more work in that room in March.
And, I managed to get the taxes filed online -- it took me all day, but we won't go into that!
Taxes are done for another year.
I'm making progress on my weight loss, deep cleaning jobs, and my quilts.
