So I promised weekly updates on my February project of the month attempt, but completely failed. Sorry! But lucky for you, it's prompted me to begin a new weekly post -- WIP Wednesday, where I'll feature my work in progress. It'll most likely be just my project of the month, unless I go a whole week without working on it, and include photos and my thoughts on the process.
I really enjoy setting a deadline for projects. I get more accomplished, and leave fewer things languishing. It hasn't stopped me from starting new projects along the way, but it's definitely kept me a little bit more focused, so I think this is a process I'm going to continue as long as I can. I also really love the surprise aspect of it, and can't wait to share my March project.

Ok, lace isn't next. But this is! My project for March:
A cross-stitch quilt block sampler for my mom. I started it an embarrassingly long time ago (like most of the projects I picked for the project of the month), and it's definitely more cutesy than most things either one of us likes, but it'll be great nonetheless. A little bit of crafty kitsch for her sewing room. It's from 365 Tiny Cross Stitch Designs by the Kooler Design Studio.
