Also, I started the first of the Quilting Snowladies embroidered quilt blocks. There are twelve blocks in the series, so I have quite a ways to go on this.
While I was waiting for the tea-dyed muslin for this project to arrive, I found myself between embroidery projects, and so I started a quick little project. It isn't finished yet. I still need to add a border to it and then turn it into a little quilt. It's from a free pattern by Wendy who blogs at Sugarland Quilts.
Finally, I participated in the "It's All About Me" blog hop. I both started and finished my piece for the hop.
The hop ends today. If you've missed any of it (or all of it), you can find the full schedule of participants right here. Honestly, folks have been so clever and creative with their pieces. You'd never know we all started with the same pattern. Such fun.
But this party is all about YOU! So now I'm ready to see what YOU started during the month of February. I had quite a few starts for the month, but you only need one start and zero finishes to link up below. Everyone who links up is eligible to win this month's needle nanny. Here's the little cutie I'm giving away this month:
And if you don't know what a needle nanny is, it's a strong magnet that you can fasten to your stitcheries, or your clothing, or whatever! I stick my needle to it whenever I finish my embroidery for the morning. They are handmade from copper, brass and nickel in a small village in Thailand, where proceeds from their sale contribute to the health, education, and welfare of the community.
Here's what you need to do to be entered in the giveaway:
1. Please link-up with your newly started projects from February, finished or not. If you feel like it, show us the progress you've made on any other previously posted NewFO projects.
2. Please link back to this post from your blog. Also, please link to your blog post, not your blog. To do that, just click on the title of your post to isolate it from the rest of your blog. Then copy the URL and use that to link up. Links to blogs will be edited or deleted entirely. Also, this is not a place to advertise your Etsy shop or some other event. To be clear, you may include references to other items in your post, but there should be something related to your NewFO's as well. Inappropriate and/or unrelated links will be deleted.
3. Finally, don't have a blog? Upload an image to my FlickR group and link to that. If you have questions about how to do that or about how to link up, please email me. If you're having trouble posting your image, email it to me as an attachment, and I'll be happy to do it for you.
4. Obviously, I need some way to contact you no matter how you link up. No email address and no other way to contact you equals no entry in the giveaway. Email me separately if you need to.
This giveaway ends one week from today. Winner of the needle nanny will be announced on March 7, 2013! I will ship interplanetarily, and so this giveaway is open to all residents of planets orbiting the Sun. Overnight delivery to the planet Uranus will include a minor surcharge.
Now, show us your new stuff!
