March BOTM Stitchery

redwork stitchery that says endless project ideas
The little stitcheries from Bea at Capricorn Quilts work up so quickly and are so cute. I just love doing them. I will need to 'do over' the first two months as I realized I won't have enough fabric for the whole year. It looked like enough when I started. Oh, well, I can use the first two for other projects.

Friday night was spent at the quilt shop. We had great table mates and laughed a lot as we sewed on our projects. Scalloped place mats from a Clothesline Club kit is what I worked on for the evening. I even won my first door prize! I am very lucky with the drawings here, but never had my name drawn at Fantastic Friday. I won a Clover rotary cutter with a light attachment. Has anyone used this brand? It's new to me.

Monday was Plan Bee time at Mary's house. Mary and Connie showed their challenge projects and they are both terrific! It was really fun to see what Mary made with the same fabric pack that I was given. Connie had the ugliest fabric grouping to use, but you'd never know it when you see her quilt. It's gorgeous and I'm sure will be very popular in the bidding game. I'll post pictures of all of the challenges when the Habitat Auction begins in April.

Clover products are usually wonderful. I've never seen the lighted cutter, but all their other stuff seems to be clever, well-made, useful, and sturdy. I'll be interested in hearing how you like it!

Isn't it fun to win the door prize? Half the fun is hearing your name . . . then extra bonus fun when the prize is a goody *s*
