January 2013

The first month of 2013 is over already.  Are we on warp speed or what!?  Only 11 months until 2014 - yikes!!!

In January I managed to make two quilts tops, finish a quilt off of my Lovely Year of Finishes list / 1st Quarter list and make a couple dozen (or more) blocks for a variety of bees and for my own quilts and projects.  I finished my first swap item(s) of 2013 too - yay!

Health wise, I suffered from the 'January blues' which I tried to cure with fabric shopping and signing up to a few more swaps and joining two Block of the Month programs.  All of that on top of the four bees I am already in plus the self-imposed pressures of finishing what I started LAST year THIS year...

So, back to what I made in January!!  Here is the abridged version in picture mosaic form:

January summary:
  • 2 quilt tops competed
  • 1 quilt finished
  • 4 (+3) magnets completed
  • 1 pin cushion made
  • 1 'heat bag' made
  • 1 fabric bucket made
  • 24+ blocks sewn 
  • 2 panel pillows
  • 1 tutorial completed
My favourite finish of January was my Scrappy Wonky Star quilt which has a flannel back to it and is super soft and lovely.  I also love the mouse pin cushion I made for Annie using Anna Maria Horner leopard print fabric!  I named him Mighty Mouse!

Off to link up with Fresh Sewing Day over at Lily's Quilts.......and that reminds me -- I still have do my Part 2 of my 2012 re-cap!!  Please can someone donate more hours to the day to me!??  Cheers! ;)
