Mini Archie's March Furtle

Archie The Wonder Dog

Hello there!

March was a much quieter month stitch-wise than I'd have liked, but c'est ma vie!

I did manage to overcome the woe of having to unpick the quilting disaster on my son's quilt, and it's all looking much nicer now. And, extra bonus, it's finished!!

A bit of a diversionary project resulted in a finished virus scarf too.  If you like to crochet and haven't tried this pattern yet, you should give it a go.  It works up really nicely and gets off to a speedy start, though of course as the rounds get bigger it seems to slow down a bit.  I have referenced some patterns and a useful video tutorial on my original post, if you are interested.

Back in January I decided my goals were:

1) to find time for more - progress and prep
2) to sew my stash and scraps (and generally use what I've already got)

Well, I didn't do so well on the time thing as life bit hard this month, but I did use up two balls of yarn from stash for the scarf and the quilt made use of lots of fabric that had been specially collected over a couple of years.  Aside from buying replacement threads for the quilting, everything used was already here.  Somehow though, the stash boxes still look just as full!!

I hope you've all had the month you wanted - productive, relaxed or otherwise.  I'm hoping to pop in on some of you through the Furtle shortly.
