|First pin basted flannel quilt project|
✓1. Finish quilting Martha's top. COMPLETED!!! I named it Little Bits. My husband shipped it to its recipient who lives in Texas at the beginning of the month.
✓2. Layer and baste one of the flannel quilt tops. COMPLETED!!! I layered and basted not one; but, TWO flannel quilt tops. I was able to get both tops to fit on one width of batting. These flannel tops are made entirely from scraps so I'm linking to Oh Scrap/Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework. (I always enjoy seeing other people's scrap projects with a cuppa on Sunday morning!)
✓3. Quilt the "Happy Hearts" table runner. COMPLETED!!! Bonus, I also FINISHED it.
✓4. Finish the hand embroidery on the small wall hanging. COMPLETED!!!
|Second pin basted flannel quilt project|
✓6. Keep up making the Temperature Quilt blocks. MET!!!! I decided which thread I wanted to use to represent snow.7. Add embroidery stitches to the log cabin block. Nope, I haven't touched this project.
✓8. Make the Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks for February--yellow is the color. COMPLETED! I made twelve yellow string blocks this month.
9. Complete a software class with my machine embroidery. Nope. Although, I did spend a few hours on two Sundays reacquainting myself with the materials.

When I started stitching the blocks into rows, I realized I was a half block short. Then I realized I had stitched the corner of one block incorrectly. I repaired the block and made one more half block. Then, I did the happy dance because I had met my monthly goal to make all of the blocks!

I am linking to the February One Monthly Goal finishes page. I do plan to take some time to browse the internet to see how other people completed this project!

Worldwide the number of COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths are declining. Vaccinations are on the rise in spite of vaccine shortages. The third vaccine produced by Johnson and Johnson received FDA approval so it should be available to the general population soon.
In Oregon, kids are returning to school. Some elementary students have been doing in person learning for months. School districts are choosing their return timetables. All are choosing to stagger the return with kindergarten and grade one students beginning first with other grade levels added in week intervals.

For my teacher daughter, that means she will be "in person" beginning April 1. For now, that is about all that is clear. For the grand daughters, their parents have determined that they will continue with on line learning until they have been vaccinated. Currently, kids aren't in the mix for getting a vaccine because not enough information is known.
Friday, the governor released the plan for when the remaining population will be eligible to receive the vaccine. I hope that in the next few weeks, the process to register and to make an appointment will be more streamlined. My husband will be eligible to receive his vaccine March 29.
