January Progress...

Well, since Judy asked so nicely, I decided to see what I had actually accomplished in January. Boy, was I disappointed! I did finish the Convergence Quilt and the flannel quilt for the dogs, which got rid of some stash, but were the only finishes I had. I cut and helped the kids sew the blocks for the school quilt, which used stash, I hand pieced my carpenter's wheel and I used a lot of stash making the 25 patch quilt top. I ran into a dilemma with that over how to make it larger without making more blocks, but I've finally worked that out in my mind - now to do it in fabric! Over the past few days I've been doing some handquilting on a fall quilt that I received after a friend passed away a few years ago. Being sick seemed like a good opportunity for some quiet work. Other than that, not much happened! :o( I guess I need to start February with a list of things to do...otherwise I may get nothing done at all!

handquilting- sounds so perfect for taking it easy but getting some quilty time in! Hope you continue to feel better and I think you did plenty in January!

Carolyn! Don't be disappointed. It sounds to me like you did a lot! For me, making a list helps a lot because I get side-tracked and will half finish a dozen things instead of completely finishing 2 or 3.

You're doing great and that carpenter's wheel is so pretty . . that should count for a whole lot!

It think that is alot to get done in January, Carolyn. Especially in addition to doing customer quilts and being at the school, and having a family. Give yourelf a big pat on the back!! With out the motivation we'd get far less done !

Love the dresden plate you are doing for a customer. What a unique border..*VBS*
