Awesome Ladies Project, March Edition

It's the last Friday of the month which means it's time to participate in the Awesome Ladies Project!As usual, I haven't really put in a lot of thought about the project I want to make today. The last Friday of the month always seems to sneak up on me.

In January, I finished sewing a set of coasters. In February, I chose to work on hand stitching this wooden owl. The project was simple and I created the owl quickly. He is supposed to be a Christmas ornament. However, he is lightweight enough that I think I can use him as an embellishment on a holiday layout.

I had bought the owl ornament on clearance shortly after Christmas from our local fabric shop. The problem I often find with projects like this one is that, despite it being a quick project, I don't set aside time to do it. This poor owl might have found it's way to a drawer and been forgotten.  Setting aside a few hours to work on him for the Awesome Ladies Project was a good thing for me. It felt good to use the kit and now I have a great embellishment or holiday gift.

Each month, there has been a sketch challenges for the Awesome Ladies Project. I completed this layout for January's sketch. It felt good to use up scraps from my Cocoa Daisy kits and to mix in a few pieces of older products.

I definitely should do a better job of preparing a project for the last Friday of the month. My goals this year are to art journal more and to learn to crochet. I am not sure I am prepared enough to accomplish one of those in today's busy schedule( another argument for being better prepared). At the least, I will work on the February Awesome Ladies sketch or one of the challenges for the Paper Issues Crops. Let's see next month if I can work toward a project relating to my goals.

Do you have a project you have been wanting to finish? Set aside an hour or two today to work on it and join us for the Awesome Ladies Project!
