5.  complete 6 garments for me-4 complete, 1 in progress
red dress and kimono jacket

9  complete

10.  long story....short
hand pieced around maybe in the 40's- given to me
I pin basted, started hand quilting with hoop......changed to no hoop
had too many puckers in backing....ripped all out
now re-thread basted.....will learn to use that hoop

12   modern log cabin- started
Not a lot of completes but good progress......for the ADD Nana
I had several customer alterations and projects that I did get out the door.


  1. A wonderful amount of progress. March was a great month for you

    1. Oh, that has been since Jan.....I do not work fast enough to get it done in March....but I keep plodding along.

  2. My goodness you have been busy Nana, I hate sewing for my self LOL I just love the colours you are using in your modern log-cabin it's going to be a stunner. Cheers Glenda

    1. Thanks, I am excited about doing the log cabin.....I am determined to learn to sew for myself.....I put lots in the goodwill sack because I get frustrated when I can't get it to fit. Maybe someone benefits.

  3. I love the modern log cabin - the colours really pop!

  4. Great progress. I had to try a few different hoops to figure out what worked best for me. I think the key was to not have it too tight in the hoop. Good luck

  5. Looks like you made great progress this month! Beautiful QOV top!

  6. You've done so much, Nana! Great progress - keep it going!!
