The Dirty Dozen is back! For those of you who are new readers, each month we pick a project to finish within the next 30 days. Last June we all picked 12 UFO’s and numbered them 1-12. I would draw a number each month and that’s what you worked on. If you werent a reader last June just pick a project that needs finishing. Send me the picture when it’s finished and I will post on the blog.
We also started a monthly color challenge and if you can combine the two, more power to you. We took a break in January and February and did $5.00 Friday instead but now let’s get started again.
The Dirty Dozen number for March is 6. Number six. The color is brown – kind of like March in North Iowa. If your #6 is brown, you win!! I’m going to look for a brown UFO even if it’s not #6.
I’m still waiting to receive the dvd from Rags To Rugs by Lora. She makes lots of rugs using new fabric rolls as well as jute. Those don’t sound like rags to me. After I view the dvd I might ask you to contact her – I believe she is using Rick’s frames for sure.
I’m still accepting pet photos for Pet Parade – it’s been so much fun!!
This is what March 1 in North Iowa looks like.
Cathy and I are working on Tom’s shirt quilt.
I am relieved it’s a new month. February gave me the following:
1. Martingale announced their closing.
2. Our pattern Best of All was given away free.
3. Quiltmania published our copyrighted pattern for Bullseye.
4. Our Rugs From Rags directions are being sold on a dvd with our frame. Here is a picture of the original frame that Rick engineered the new frame from.
So I’m sure you can understand why I welcome the month of March!
