January Accomplishments

Whew, that month went fast! I guess they all do anymore...but it was a good one. I started off on fire, then slowed considerably toward the end of the month. I did get lots of cross stitch done, but the progess on that would be very boring to watch on the blog, so you'll see those projects when they are done.

This month, I rocked with 23.5 hours in my sewing room and I finished the following projects:
  • Valentine's table topper - pieced, quilted, bound, and mailed! (I think that's a first)
  • Rice bag for my mom
  • Made 50 red segments for my snowball challenge (boy, I want to get back to this project!)
  • Prepped back for Carnival, quilted, bound, and showed at the guild meeting.
  • Prepped back for Curtis' baby quilt
  • Finished Lois' candle mat and X-bag
  • Modified my friend's shirt for easier nursing access
  • Pieced a top of a heart quilt...pics to be shown when it is done
  • Loaded a quilt top for my mom, started quilting it and didn't like the quilting...still on the frame (I have some to rip out, but we have a plan B)
  • Made the first of my pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge
  • Made binding and hanging sleeve for one of Lois' small wall quilts
  • Star block for a lady in our guild who is recovering from a broken ankle and can't go anywhere for 12 weeks (yikes!)

I didn't finish the quilting on the baby quilt I am making, and wish I'd made more progress on the Snowball challenge. I did get all of Lois' fabric to my house, got some of it organized in the basement, and found most of her UFO's. All the most urgent ones are in progress and I am enjoying working with her stuff (both the unfinished projects and the fabric).

I don't want to put a lot on the docket for February because we have a busy month ahead and I have a lot going on at work, and the Olympics is starting, which means a lot of couch time! I would like to get these things done at least:
  • Finish quilting mom's quilt
  • Quilt Curtis' baby quilt
  • Finish one more of Lois' UFO tops
  • Do some more work on the Snowball Challenge
Hopefully, I can get some things quilted so I have binding ready when the games begin!

WOW!!! You did a tremendous amount in January!!! Even with the addition of Lois's stash! That would have stunted my work! :)

Couch time = cross stitch time! :)

Have a great month!!
