Even though I suffered an injury to my right index finger last weekend I am still able to do some things and able to keep up the daily stitching. It’s been more knitting and sewing. Rotary cutting is excruciating, hoping that gets better soon!

In: Fabric purchased with a Christmas Gift Card, yarn gifted to me from a friend’s destash, Fat Quarters for a St Patrick’s Day table topper, yardage for Churn Dash. The piece on the left of the photo is 2 yards new, the piece on the right is 1/2 yard old. There is a slight color difference, but I think the 1/2 yard is enough to get the pieces I need. If not I will introduce the new fabric into the block centers, that way the pieces will not touch each other.

  

Out: Accents strips for pillowcases, blocks for Mystery BOM. February Mini is done, reveal on Wednesday, Hearts On A String ready for hearts to be applied,  Fallen Cloud is growing, and Chain hat is too!
