Fresh Sewing Day/Goal Setting - March

February felt like a good sewing month.

I started and finished a quilt - Starburst (Shine bright like a diamond)

I finally completed my Cherry Blossom quilt top (started this last summer) and I think it's being quilted today (outsourced)

I started on something small, just for fun

Did I make a birthday gift for my grandma? No comment. Her birthday hasn't been yet;

So what's in store for March?

1) Finish my Cherry Blossom quilt (all I will need to do is sew on binding) - this will be my Lovely Year of Finishes goal
2) Birthday gift for grandma - if it's not already done;)
3) I really want to sit down and figure out how to use my new serger (which I bought in November)

So nothing big - I hope I will have time to do some small, fun projects this month. It's the last month I'm home before becoming a working professional again. It will be strange to return to work, but good to start having a life outside the home again! My brain needs to think about other things than feeding, nap time and diaper changes. And I know the little girl will be in good hands - it's time for 12 weeks (paid) paternity leave for the mister. Yup, Norway's great like that:)
