March-ing Along

So another month is gone and we're starting the 3rd month of 2015.  Is anyone else freaked out by how quickly time is flying by?  I don't like it!

Last Thursday I took a class at Michael's - my first ever at the store.  They had an Art Journaling course and I've been wanting to try this craft for a while.  I've looked at some stuff on line and I have tons of supplies accumulated over the years so when I saw the blurb in their February class flier, I decided to sign up.

It was very informal and the store manager was the instructor.  There was one other lady beside myself there and it turned out to be a relaxing and fun way to spend a cold Thursday evening.  Here is the start of my journal - the cover.  In case you can't read the letters, the typewriter keys spell "change".

On the stitching front, I did start BBD Spell of the Moon which is one of the projects I kitted up in January.  This is the tree and the start of the outside border.  I hope to put some additional time into it tonight if I can stay away long enough!
And also waiting on the horizon is a new crochet project.  I'm going to attempt the Greenway afghan using some Caron Simply Soft and Bernat Satin yarn I had in my stash.  It will match some throw pillows in my living room. 
I'm still struggling with my crochet skills and this has a tricky for me pattern so I'm kind of avoiding starting it but I just need to start that chain and get it going.  Worrying about not getting the pattern right has prevented me from starting.

Thank you for visiting and I hope your weekend was a good one.  It's on to another work week all to soon.
