To start off, in February, pictures of my office door being adorned with a logo, and my name (just in case I forget where my office is !)- it's a first for me! Actually it's nice to no longer be in a fish-bowl. As we share offices with another non-profit, this is to keep things straight! Also had the air-con upgraded, with the attendant disruption and mess.
I had a mad, mad rush to meet the end of February dead-line for submission of the final assignments for the South African Quilters' Guild's Quilt Teachers' Accreditation Course. This is one of the two practical pieces submitted, a small wall -hanging, 24-inches square, own design. Now that is back with me, the ribbons will be removed, I only added them to meet the three embellishment requirements... really, I avoid these like the plague! The buttons are obvious, but I think you may have difficulty finding the third embellishment!
I did make time to make blocks for both February and March Block Lotto. February's blocks were mailed off to the winners from....

...Wales, where we went for two weeks, mid-March, to see our darling growing family, with a flying stop in London to see our son at Uni. E does sit still occasionally, but not for this photo, trying desperately to get down. Grandpa amazingly patient with the little guy, many times up and down the staircases.
I did manage in the first week of March to finish his quilt. The back was a lovely brushed cotton flat sheet. All his Dad's family are in the airline business, and my father-in-law (his great-grandfather) flew a plane like this in the 1930s, from Europe to South Africa, hence the theme. As we all were sick at one time or another in Wales, photos are rare, but did get these of him and the quilt:

In other sewing, Angela at SoScrappy has been running a block a week project this year, the blocks are small (4.5 inch finished) and are sooo cute, that they could not be resisted! Each is either set square or on point, the grey "sashing" is a lovely local brushed cotton.
