MARCH PICKS FOR CHARMING GUYS & GIRLS QUILT CLUB

Time for me to make a decision on projects to work on for the month of March. I have decided not to add the table runner back in that was on the list the last two months and still waits to be finished. If it gets done, it gets done.
My first project is a wool table mat with houses & sheep on it. All the wool parts & pieces need stitched down and the willow trees need their branches. It has been at the stage shown in the photo for several months.
The second project is a wool mat. I have had the pattern for a couple years. Time to do something with it. I prepped the pieces and got it all laid out this morning. The directions on making this are a bit different than I am used to but I am going to give it a try.
The third project is also done in wool. I worked all afternoon and part of this evening prepping the pieces and getting them all placed. There is still an alphabet to add to the bottom. Lots of stitching needs to be done on this one.
The fourth project is to finish this spring wall hanging that I made during the Spring Sewing Party last weekend. I have all the machine stitching done, though this photo was taken before I did that. It just needs a backing, quilted, and binding.
The fifth project is the Valentine table mat. It is all prepped and ready for stitching.
Looks like I have lots of hand work lined up for myself this month. I am really in the mood for the wool projects.

Check back to see how I do!

What beautiful wool projects you have to work on! I like to work with wool too but haven't done much with it lately. Perhaps I should get back on the bandwagon!

You should have those all finished in no time. All the hard work is done.
The little mat with the houses is so cute. A friend of mine did one and the little trees just make the mat look so great. Have fun.
