6 & 6 in 2018 Update for March

Greetings from South Texas where Spring is definitely here!  This is the prettiest time and becoming my favorite time of the year.  It is before we go in to the hot and humid and dry summers now.   We are hoping for some nice April showers this month as we are still very dry!

Here is my update for the 6 & 6 in 2018!  I have added a few things that were definitely UFO’s.  I am hoping to complete more than I did in March – time will tell!

    1. I was surprised when I started looking at what I did get done. I am ready to work on Mountmellick and load Rosemary’s quilt. UNLESS I find someone to catch me up on the quilts! Hum maybe I will do that today!


  1. There’s some big stuff crossed off that list.😊 This month will be better for you. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with the Texas quilt, that one is mostly embroidery isn’t it?


    1. Yes and I found the panel for the State to change the pattern. The original pattern has sashings with stars and you and I know that won’t work like it should. Now I have to settle in and get the math going on what type of border to add before I can add the blocks…. That will be fun to do as I love math! Have a great day! Took the day off yesterday and did a day trip with Clay – it was fun!
