Due to the fact that my day to post in the It's All About Me hop, was the same day to
post my NewFo Challenge , it's a day late. I apologize to all the other Newfo participants for that.
"Sew", let's see I finished some things I started last year and started some more !
That's kinda how we all roll isn't it !
The reason I say "sew", "sew" much, is because of my three sisters, (We also have a brother, Harlan, the oldest and wisest, who is a farmer in South Dakota ) We all live very far apart, Yvonne in South Carolina, Bonnie in Washington state, Barbara in South Dakota and me in Texas. We've been trying to get together every 1 or 2 years. As a matter of fact we're getting together again this year in June to celebrate our Mother's 89th birthday ! As long as that precious woman keeps having birthday's, she deserves all of her children there with her. (Sorry Mama), I think she quit having birthdays at 80.
In Helen Turners words, " I will be 80 + 9." She's probably going to kick my rear end for divulging that info and believe me she can do it.

Mom made our dresses.
Oops...chased a rabbit !
Anyway, for some reason we start our conversations with "SO", blah, blah,blah. Of course then, we have to laugh because we don't know why we say it ! When we get together it's just a laugh festival !
Then, since I blog about sewing.....
"Sew" that's the reason I write "sew" so much...... is in honor of my Sissies !
Other than making an It's all About Me Hussy......
Here's what my February looked like....
I put the binding on "Santa Anna's Star Cake and Cuttin the Cards".
Made a Trip Around the World using this tutorial.
Finished piecing the tops of "Comanche Stars" I started in 2012
and "Blueberry Cobbler" I started in 2011.
I made this for my best friend Nancy.
I started restoring this quilt for my Son. I think his Great Grandmother Stella made it. That's why we need to put labels on our quilts, so we'll have documentation for future generations.
Cotton was used for the batting and it was falling out through all the holes I'm in the process of patching.
Made two more blocks in the 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month
Started a Boxy Star graduation quilt for my Daughter-in-law's younger sister, using Bonnie Hunter's tutorial.
Finished this flannel top I started for my granddaughter ....when she was about 6 months old. It's going to be a donation quilt for the Wee Care program our guild supports.
Added these tumbler blocks to this.
Hand quilted my February "Little Jo's Club" project.
Whew, I think that's it !
Once vegetables and grass get growing,
this much sewing won't be happening !
