If you were to look of the definition of 'burnt out' in the dictionary, you would see a picture of me. My spring break next week is coming at the right time, yet, I still want to spend it working on this list along with the projects I do have to do for school when we resume. Today, instead of working on any of my projects, I took a long nap. Much needed but I'm still tired.
What do you say we get on with it already. Linking up at Freshly Pieced as always.
Nothing this week.
Sewing Machine Cover - well I haven't touched this since Monday due to deadlines for my classes, but I have made progress since the last time I showed you.

Mini QT Swap - I have nailed down my idea for my partner and will be working on it. I can't reveal too much since this is not a secret swap and I do want this to be a surprise for her.
Project Quilting Challenge: Music
Project Quilting Challenge: Tools
Project Quilting Challenge: Barn Quilts
Hand Pieced QAL
I did know that all of these were going to be added at once. It's kind of a shock to my list, but also the nature of the year long projects I have going on.
Dessert of the Month Club: March
Wild Olive Swap - I signed up to swap a 4" embroidery piece in this secret swap. We are assigned a partner and they can supply us with their favorite colors and motifs. My partner was a bit lean on her information, so I will have to a do a bit of stalking to see if I can come up with something tailored to her. If you're interested in embroidery, but haven't heard of Mollie's blog, do check it out.
Quilt Challenge of the Month: March - the challenge this month is to make something with leaders and enders. I did have to look up what that meant and when I found out, am not surprised I didn't know what they are. I don't do a lot of chain piecing and haven't had issues when I do. I may make up a scrappy mini for this challenge and if done in time for it, submit it to the Scrap Attack link up later this month.
2012 Color Challenge: March - I just love the palette this month and have already ordered my fabrics for it. They are due to arrive on Friday, just in time to play with on my break. I have a plan too so no excuses.

Project Quilting Challenge: It's Where I Live - this challenge is to create something based on where you live. There is a twist, which is you can only use three colors and to get those, you pick a color that starts with the first letter of the street you live on, the first letter of your city, and the first letter of your state. So that means I have colors that start with an F and two Ms. I could only think of fuschia, magenta, and maroon at first, but did a little search for color names. I didn't want to work with that palette for my piece and you will see why when I sew it up. So I'm getting a little creative with color names (like fire engine red instead of fuschia). Fortunately, embellishments don't count, so I can FMQ and embroider my heart out, which is my plan.
Since I do have a week off of school, I do have time to work hard on this list. Yes, I have some schoolwork to do, and partly it's because I have been slacking on one big project. I'm going to kick off my break by working on this list all day Friday until I go to work. That's going to mean not turning my computer on either to limit my distractions. I have enough projects going that I have no need to look up anything, lol.
I hope your Wednesday is going well!
