March OMG

My list for February had been a short one due to the number of days in the month and having 2 cataract surgeries scheduled.

1. Start working on a design for a tshirt quilt for my DH. I managed to get the shirts sorted, cut and ready for pressing and stabilizing.

2. I have a leader ender project on the go. I did get the larger blocks made and auditioned some sashing. As my vision improved I decided the sashing wasn’t right so Jack needs to be put to work and I need to re-think my design.

3. My third goal for the February OMG was to keep working on the pile of To Be Quilted Tops. I did get my Star Crossed Plaid to the 3/4 finish but lost my ruler foot. Just waiting for my replacement to get back on this now that I can see my marks clearly.

This month looks to be fairly clear with time for some classes I am attending and teaching, physio therapy and doctors appointments all booked.

My March OMG list is concentrating on finishing or at least making progress as my eyes adjust to seeing and follows:

1. Keep working on the Memory Quilt.

2. Redesign the scrappy leader/ender project.

3. Finish Star Crossed Plaid and get the binding on so it can be shipped out to my great granddaughter.

4. Work out the final layout of the Vortex Quilt that has the blocks completed and audition border fabrics.

5. Work on finishing my knitted socks.

6. Finish my rag rug.

7. Take care of any squirrels that swing by my sewing space, including the new Project Quilting 11.5 challenge which will be an entirely new project.

Wish me luck! I do hope your OMG lists are as manageable and doable as mine.

Thanks for stopping by 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Reasonable list and I like that you have left room for chasing squirrels!!! There’s a new block in the color challenge that just came out – of course, it is orange!!! OBW is all cut and only 98 more hexies to sew before I have to figure out the layout.

    1. I saw the monthly colour was orange and was thinking of you! You got the OBW cut and are really on a roll with those hexies! You go, girl! And don’t forget the 🐿 will pay you a visit, too! 😉 Carol

  2. Hi Carol! Oh good, you saw the PQ 11.5 challenge. I don’t think I’ll be able to partake in this one as work is having me stay later. This is quite a list for March. Good luck to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. I’m so excited that I saw it! I’m reading now and playing with fabric! Life is grand. I’m sorry you can’t partake. Sometime real life interferes with our happy times. 😉 Carol


  3. That’s probably reasonable for the whole month, but you do realize OMG stands for ONE monthly goal, right? LOL No, it doesn’t mean I only do one thing, either.

    1. I wish I could only have one goal! I’m a retired from the workforce, caregiver. We live in the cutest 600 sq. ft. apartment. DH is a channel flipper and my sewing space is 5’ from the tv. I keep busy and sane while DH does the thing with the remote🥴


      1. Everything is in arranging your space, isn’t it? Paul and I spent his last 5 years living in a 30 ft. 5th wheel. I sewed up in the bedroom on a built in vanity, pressed on the bathroom cabinet and cut on the top of the cabinet the TV was in. I probably know some of the Tim Allen shows by heart. LOL And wouldn’t I just love to be back there again! I DO lots more than one thing, but I prioritize one thing for OMG each month, and sometimes don’t get it done. Now I have a two-story house, though both boys have come home, and a room dedicated to quilting … okay, a house dedicated to it. LOL Both boys have fabric in “their” spaces. But it was my space first! LOL

      2. I know what you mean. In the house my studio was 12’x18’. Now I have 4’ square! It works for me. I have a storage room. The best thing is we live in the suite in the club house on a golf course. DH belt the club house 30 years ago. Now when there’s no snow he can play as much golf as he wants. It keeps him moving and at the MS Clinic thru are pleased because his condition has been stable for 6 years now. The big guy upstairs is watching out for my DH these days. I’d have loved to live the fifth wheel life. It was my dream.
        I try to prioritize my goals but it always seems like I have 3 or more “have to get done” projects!
        It must be nice to have your boys near even if it’s only temporary. I have one living in Mexico and the other in northern Alberta. Not close enough but they are happy and have their lives and families so it’s all good! 😉
