January Finishes...

January was a busy month...I started a new job, working with Keller Williams Realty and continued working both of my old jobs, Weight Watchers and my quilting business.  I still found time to get a few things done, both things on my list and things that weren't. From my list, I finished Ellen's Maine Morning Mitts...



And I quilted and bound Andrew's quilt...

Things that weren't on my list include another pair of Mitts which I gave as a birthday gift to a friend...


I also quilted two customer quilts...
Another finish not on my list was the Rachel's Reel quilt in the last post.  I've ordered backing fabric for that and hope to have it quilted soon.

The only thing on my list which wasn't completed was the first block for my Aunt Millie's Garden quilt, which is over half finished.  I have to admit, I was afraid to cut into the fabric and if I'd started the block BEFORE last week, it would have been done.  I don't know what it is about cutting into new fabric...something always holds me back.  Once I start I'm fine, but that first snip is so hard!  That one will be done in the next few days.  I'm looking forward to tomorrow night...Meredith from Quilt Threads is coming over and we're going to do a little stitching.

So, that's January...now to figure out what I'll be working on in February!

Love those fingerless mitts. Looked all over but you just can't get them here in Florida. Wish I had learned to knit!
