march OMG - crazy stripes

More ends to darn in, because I don't like this part and I need the external motivation:

this is what I've done since November 2018

Feb OMG - Done!

This was an easy and quick project, with just enough thinking to keep me engaged.

I'm amused that they came out slightly different sizes.  And next time, I will cut out all the pieces before sewing them together!  I've decided that I like a smaller flange and I want to practice more to make it more even...!

Feb OMG - pillowcases x2

I need something simple this month, since I am distracted by other things.  I bought this fabric back in January 2018 to make pillowcases.  So, let's do this!

January OMG - Indian Summer scarf

I bought this yarn years ago at the Wool Gathering in Ohio.  The plan was to make a scarf, but it has been re-worked several times...

I've carried it with me several places; I even hand carried it in my luggage to Korea.  I made some progress on it in November (undoing the bits I didn't like; will look for those pics) but set it aside in the naughty pile because I really didn't want to deal with the ends.

Well, it is Shelly's birthday on the 18th and I want to get this project crossed off my list.  Need to get it done sooner, since it will take time to mail!

Measured at 36 ish inches yesterday when I took this:



And it was 43 ish when I finished my coffee this morning!  Progress!  My goal is to finish this scarf and mail it off.  Bonus points if I get it to her by the 18th.

December OMG - done

I made these three for my guild:



I made the other four into a scrappy pillow for me:
standing on a chair to take a pic...!

I edited one of the arrows from the beginning of the month.  I had enough of the same/similar fabrics to make them into kinda-pairs:



and these two:
 
I had fun with this, especially with arranging the pieces.  Sewing together the fiddly bits and getting poked by pins, not so much fun.  It is just a bit smaller than the pillow form, so I need to add a border.  Or make the pillow a bit smaller!  Also, with all the seams, thinking I'll make ironing it my January OMG.  :P

Dec OMG - scrappy arrows

My guild is making these for the January BOM, so even though I am far away, I am going to make some too!  These two are mine, and I need to make some in navy, teal, and purple and mail them in before the January meeting.


I think the HST came out pretty good.  :)


My OMG is to make 7 total.  Linking back to our host, Patty of Elm Street Quilts.
