March 2016 Accomplishments

March was a really busy month for me - I was in Indiana (home), Mexico City, Danville, IL, Washington, DC, and North Potomac, MD.  Lots going on meant not too much sewing or stitching time at home, but luckily I worked on some stitching while traveling and also had a retreat as one of my trips so had some good dedicated sewing time. 

I totalled 34 1/2 hours of quilting in March, 27 1/2 of which was at my retreat.  Here are the quilting projects I got done during this month: 
- Iron bag
- Tool caddy
- 6 Sweetpea pods
- Crayons top
- Hourglass top (minus borders)
- Joy pillow
- Made back, batting for Wonky Trees quilt top

On the stitching front, I finished my ornament for March, Plenty, from the Just Cross Stitch Ornaments catalog. I really like this one! 
My work trip to Mexico went very well and our family vacation to DC and Maryland was great too - we walked all over the district to see museums, monuments, the zoo, and the cemetary. We had great meals and reconnected with old friends, and then spent a couple days with my brother and his family and the kids loved their cousin time. All in all, March was a great month!

Your March ornament turned out great, Jennifer! I just love things stitched on black... will have to do this one next year when I am off my "snowman" theme :)

Isn't DC the best city?! We lived there for a year and I never tire of visiting. We'll be going down next weekend to visit my youngest so who is lucky enough to live there!

What a nice looking family you all are :)
