March is marching 2x2 hurrah, hurrah... March is marching...

My last post of work was in February and I posted "Has anyone seen February?"  I almost wanted to write that for March.  Wow the days are marching by aren't they?

I have been busy- ish.

First up, we had a young friend who turned 5 in early March and we had purchased a Pegasus toy for her, so I decided to make her a pillow case inspired by the Pegasus.  I am assured she loves both the toy and the pillow. (Yeah - happy dance here)
Then a week later E (my youngest) was invited to a birthday party for a friend from school.  We had found a copy of the "Cars 2" Novel, so I drew (traced) a Mater pillow case for him too.  Young Charlie wanted to know if I drew it, I was so impressed, but I did tell him I had to trace as my drawing skills are not that great.
A bit more progress on the 'care quilt' mentioned in my last post.  
However it appears it is going to be an Aussie Hero Quilt instead.

 Now this next finish is one I am very proud of.  In my UFO box was a "Jelly Roll Race" quilt from a couple of years ago,  that I just needed to quilt.  It has just sat..... and sat ..... and sat.

Until, Jan-Maree of Aussie Hero Quilts put out a request for quilts for Chaplains in Afghanistan.  The idea sprang to mind so fast I almost got a headache from the impact. 
 I thought I could applique an Australia with a cross on top of the Jelly roll race.

So I stitched black bias tape onto the quilt
 loaded it onto O-me and quilted
 And here it is
 I am so proud of this quilt.  I don't know why, it is really no different to any other Aussie Hero Quilt I have made, but it has a special place in my heart.  I hope it brings comfort to the Chaplain and his fellow soldiers.

Just a little shot of how I have spent at least 1 afternoon every week this month.  
Swimming lessons, a great time to embroider.
See you again soon.

I have a few more finishes (shock I know).
