DAGMT 2015 and Other Commitments

For the last two years I have try to commit to sewing for 20 minutes every day for the month of February as part of Eve Paige Quilt Designs' "Drop and Give Me Twenty". This year she has added a Facebook component, however, you won't see me there, since I don't "do" Facebook.

So, here is my commitment:

I, Kate, an easily distracted sewist and quilter (squirrel), am joining Quilting Hottie Haven's fourth annual DaGMT event, and pledge to quilt or sew for at least 20 minutes  every day of the month of February, 2015. In doing so, I hope to get something (really anything ) DONE, reducing the amount that my family will have to dispose of later. I truly think Beth Helfter is brilliant for coming up with this concept and inspiring me to join.

I will also endeavor to use only the supplies I already own, though no promises. Just an honest intention.

My friend, Cheryl, over at the Kingdom of Coco, is holding a contest. She wants everyone to design and make a pin cushion. The details are here.  I am going to join, and I hope you will, too.

I have also been commissioned to knit a baby blanket. I started it a couple of weeks ago, and it is coming nicely.

There are four sets of trees in each repeat, and a total of three repeats. I have the first set of trees finished.  If all goes well, I will have the blanket done by the end of February, as well. the biggest challenge seems to be keeping the Doug hair, which is black, out of the white blanket.


  1. Lovely blanket, super pattern, and I hopped to Cheryl, hoping for membership too. Best of all, an open invitation, no shipping, how happy can that make us? ta so much for sharing the link.

  2. What a fabulous design.......I love those trees! Good idea to sew each day for 20 minutes, without formally signing up I might try that too.

  3. I'm really excited you are back for more fun this year! I do not knit, but I love that blanket; I've never seen knitting quite like that!

  4. My final act, when I finish a project, is to de-dog/cat/people hair the item before passing it along. LOVE the tree blankie!
