A few February finishes

I actually completed some of the things on the February to-do-list!

I finished my blocks for the Modern Siggy Swap--all 101 of them.

I finished an apron for the black and white apron challenge (less fancy than I'd hoped, but form needed to follow function this time).

I finished the sets of reusable grocery tote bags for the local food bank--I think there were nine in all.

My daughters' skirts have been started, at least.

There were a couple of unexpected finishes, as well.

Like these personal care bags (our sewing circle creates these great little drawstring bags for a couple of local ministries who serve those that are homeless, in crisis, or in transition; they contain hotel toiletries.) I probably sewed a few dozen, and helped stuff most of them. We completed 367 (I think) in the past week and a half.

A great new recipe for doughnut muffins. Kevin and Amanda blogged about them, and they got the recipe from Fine Cooking. Thanks, guys, for alerting me to the existence of a fabulous fat-and-calorie laden muffin, which tastes like a doughnut. SO good. DD2 asks to make them almost daily. Hate you two.

And a couple of puzzles, just for fun.

Now, don't ask me what I must get done THIS week.


  1. Congrats on your project completions! I did not have such a successful February in the crafty department...had to rip out my baby cardi (wrong guage) and my socks (frustrated) BUT made dissertation progress so guess that it is good!

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. There's the apron! I knew you would get it done! How did you have time to bake? You must be whirling around from one thing to the next. That muffin/doughnut recipe has made me laugh several times now - sugar, cinnamon, butter, dough, crust on all sides, more butter, eggs - oh my goodness I cannot let this recipe into my house.

  3. As for me and my house, we will be having doughnut muffins sometime this week.

  4. p.s. I think the apron is adorable.

  5. You got a lot done! I like the grocery bags a lot. I ought to make myself a couple

  6. Awesome finishes this month!!!! Now I really want some muffins.
