March Goal 30/30 Sewing Challenge

Carving out 30 minutes of me time sewing time for 30 days of March, are you ready?  I hope I can meet this Challenge, one thing about sewing is that it relaxes me, so any type of sewing is relaxing even if it is making something for someone else.

Berry Barn Designs
I have my every month monthly goals:
1.        Every month I plan on following along with  
The "Classic meets Modern QAL" this month is the Drunkard's Path (first time doing that block)  Lots of different block inspiration can be found here.
2.       Every month I plan on making a block for the
 Aurifil Designer of the Month  This months designer is Emily Herrick a very easy borders block
3.       Every month I plan on making something from a
 Craft book Sew AlongI haven't decided what yet, I am getting some new books in that I won.
4.       Every month I plan on meeting the challenge over 
at Le Challenge.  This months theme is "Order"
5.       Every month make a bag from
"Big City Bags" also a Sew Along.This months bag is the Meringue Clutch.
6.       I want to make 4 Quilts this year, mmm... should be interesting, maybe one will be from the Feathers QAL  I am going to try to finish the Feathers Quilt, I finally got in my orchid colors.

If I get this quilt done it will be for me, also the Meringue Clutch will be for me and I am also making another bag called the Wonderland this month that will be FOR ME!  So lot's of sewing just for me.
I am making another bag for a swap partner, so if you are counting that is 3 bags!
And one last item that I need to do in the next 2 days is quilt and do the backing for my pillow FOR ME, or actually for my husband, but they do say that husbands and wives are 1 unit, right!
If I do get it quilted in time I will enter it in the Pillow Collective Challenge. going on over at Amy's Creative Side.

I will be linking to these great linky parties this month with my finishes.
