It’s all your fault!

First off, thank you to my friends who have inquired as to my safety and well-being.  All is well at chez Quilting Dreams.  I just haven’t found the time to blog.  Thanks to all of you who post about BOM’s and QAL’s and SAL’s.  It’s possible that I may have overextended myself just a bit for 2015.  I’m stitching like crazy to keep up, and that’s why I have no time to blog!

RSC2015:  the color for March was yellow.  I started the month with a yellow doll quilt,

my Dresden plate,


and a placemat.

I don’t have a lot of yellow scraps.  I did notice however, a yellow fat quarter bundle that was looking quite lonely and unappreciated, so I pulled it out and made a small quilt. 


And a smaller quilt.  And a pincushion.









The pincushion was inspired by THIS PATTERN from Pam Buda.  I didn’t have the pattern with me at retreat, so it’s not exact.

Gail Pan SAL:  Please refer back to ‘smaller quilt’ in the section above.  Click HERE for the free pattern, which was offered during Buttermilk Basin’s Spring Blog Hop.

Val Laird Keys of Contentment BOM:  I got a bit of a late start on this, but I’m caught up now.  Click on the button on my sidebar for more information and the free patterns.


Jenny of Elefantz BOM:  Yep, I’m caught up through March.  These are cute little stitcheries and whip up in no time.  The April design was just released today.


Gifted Gorgeousness:  I’m so excited to be caught up on this!  Santa’s Village was a 2013 BOM that I actually received as a Christmas gift.  I’ve never cross stitched anything this large, so I had to special order the fabric, and then couldn’t decide how to begin.  I usually begin stitching in the center of a pattern, so was at a total loss with this.  But once I had all the patterns, I had no more excuses.  I’m actually a little ahead of my goal with this one.









Bunny Hill Snow Happy Hearts:  Have you seen these adorable little snow people around blogland?  I stitched January and February, but then something had to give.  While I think these are so cute, I just can’t think of a use for them right now.  You know I’m printing the patterns each month, and may come back to them later.


I have more to share, but I think this is enough for one post.  Now that I’m sure I remember how to do it, I’ll be back soon.  I also plan to start a new Travelling Stash box in the very near future.

Happy Stitching!!       Sunny
