March NewFO

Well March was a little of a whirlwind for me.  I always go to southern Oregon on the train,   to visit my Sister for her Birthday. So the month was filled with making gifts and planning on top of my normal projects I try to get done.  Notice I said  TRY - :)

Okay so my first New FO are these little Mug Rugs that I made for my Sister.  I was very happy with how they turned out.

Next I made Pot holders for my Pincushion group.  (we're branching out).  I made a purple one and an Orange one too but forgot to take pictures.  urrrhhh. 

Next is my monthly Doll Quilt for: 
I was very Pleased to get it done and in the mail by mid month however it was going to Canada and due to bad weather she didn't receive it until the end of the month anyway.  My partner said she liked scrappy and our theme had to do with green so this is what I made. The flowers are done in wool. 

And of course a matching pincushion. 
I got the pattern for this out of one of my Primitive Quilts and Projects Magazine from 2011 that I bought 

and therefore I will also be linking this up to Let's Book it.  
And lastly for new items I made some other mug rugs for a different swap hosted by Michele over at the Quilting Gallery. 

Here are the two I made on top - and below the two I received in return! 

Well that's about it.  I didn't get a lot done on any of my regular monthly projects and even though I usually spend a lot of time stitching on my train ride - this year I had some nice ladies that I visited with all the way down - so not much sewing there.  

Have a Blessed Day - Lynn
