This was the last block I did in the February colors. It's a huge block, large enough to make into a baby quilt if I add a border or two, and I am thinking I just might, with a minky backing. But not today. I may be Marching Forth (March 4th, get it? I crack myself up), but I am still a slacker at heart.
The March color is red, so I am starting on that. I have to laugh at myself. Every single block I make has at least one mistake and it is, I'm afraid, evidence of my character that I see them and leave them. All of which to say, yes I know that you see them, too, but there is no point in pointing them out. There will be no perfection here, so don't dare expect it. And it has nothing, nothing I tell you, to do with the glass of wine I sometimes sip as I sew.
Thank goodness our Search and Rescue drill this month was indoors because I definitely had my sissy attitude going. We worked on knots and safety harnesses, always a fun training and definitely a perishable skill.
I got my Canadian Park pass in the mail this week. We hadn't planned a Canada trip before they offered the free pass, but now it is definitely on my wish list for the year! That, and a trip to view the total solar eclipse in August. I have a lot of hopeful short-travel plans this year, wishing like crazy that at least a few of them actually happen. :)
