What's on my Needles!

I am knitting Diabolical. It uses a gradiance yarn from The Unique Sheep and the pattern is by Threebagsfulled. I love the pattern and the yarn is wonderful to work with.  Linking up with  Patchwork Times

Get it Done - March

I did not make a list in February as I did not get to do much sewing in January and had not finished that list. I did finish the star quilt and sent to the quilter and made 2 blocks from the Gypsy Wife bom. I finished the cowgirl quilt and gifted it. Not on the list but finished was Madrona Rd. challenge quilt.

Four things I would like to get done this month are the
1.  Summer Sampler quilt backing and binding
2.  Finish baby quilt for my nephew
3.  Quilt and bind a donation quilt for bumble beans
4.  Get the top done on the starburst quilt.

Hopefully these things can get done this month and I can get back on track.
