Three down...six to go!

My March goals include nine projects (a few are almost finished already).  After a trip to the quilting store and sewing machine cleaning job this afternoon which saved a $45 service call, I was able to almost completely finish all four Civil War Chronicles March BOMs and this weekend, my daughter helped me finish the tie quilt for our grandson who turns four in April!  Last week I was able to complete a very fun project!  My apron swap with Donna - I hope she's going to receive it this coming week!!

(Give-away links are posted below...)

All lint-free now!


Blogging helps me keep on track and has helped me 'meet' fellow quilty people. I just love it, especially when you pop in and leave comments, they're quite a thrill to read, so thank you for your comments and please keep 'em coming!!

1.  CWC March BOMs
P.S.  My template worked!  No seams through the long, horizontal striped fabric!!  :-)
(My hubby's hoping that there's more to the quilt than this, otherwise his toes are gonna be cold.  He's 6'2".)

2.  Apron Swap with Donna from which includes a few extra goodies and a couple of favorite family summer-time recipes!
(Here's a sneak peek:)

3.  Completed tie quilt for grandson Aaron
(plus a few tie-ins for fun!)
The card is from Hallmark (boxed set) and the little monkey
is from JoAnn Fabrics called "Wild Clingers" from (free online games, too!)

and the T-shirt from the embroidery class that started this whole birthday "monkey business"...

Hope you had a great weekend/Spring Break!
It's off to work I go Monday morning, 
so enjoy your day off if you're on vacation!!
