March New Starts

I didn't post a monthly wrap up for February this weekend. Mostly because of my desire to stay off the computer and just have some quiet time, but also because I didn't feel like I really got much done last month. I'm hoping for a more productive March - at least in the creative realm. :)

Here are some of my new starts for March...

The last Ladies Prim Society  piece from last year. This is Noel from Black Bird Designs. I changed one of the colors because the 'red' looked too pink to me. I'm going to use the hand dyed floss that I got in last year's 12 Days of Christmas Swap.

I got a bit of a start on the next Gail Pan project I'm going to work on. This is from her book 'Patchwork Loves Embroidery' and will be one of the four boarders to a table top quilt.
 I'm super excited to get started on this baby blanket for a friend of my hubs. I'm doing a ripple blanket in these three colors. I've gotten the first 3 rows done already and started on the fourth by changing to the gray yarn, but it's not going to work. As you may be able to tell, the gray is a different brand because Hushabye Baby Bee doesn't have a gray, and even though they are both worsted weight, the gray is much lighter of a yarn. So I've googled this problem and have come up with a probable solution, another brand is a 95% match to the Hushabye. I'm hoping we have it local, but if not I'll get it ordered soon. I have until end of May for this one, but I really want to work on it:)

I'm still working away at the Guernsey Wrap, but it is starting to get boring, so I decided to start something new, but small. I'm just going to work on some dish clothes for myself. And yes, I had one about 1/3 of the way done in that coral/blue/brown/white yarn, but had a mistake and ended up ripping it all out:( So this will be considered a new start since I have to start over. :0)
I'm also participating in a Blog Hop this month. At the right side of my blog you will see a button to the Tree Bird Blog Hop hosted by Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt (or Sew We Stitch). It's going to be lots of fun with a bit of stitching and sewing involved!!
And I'll have a small piece for the Smalls Sal later this month - this time I it'll be for a block exchange with some stitchy friends!!
So many creative projects going on this month. And lots of activities for dd too, so I better get moving if I want to get anything done!! :)
