January, the long dark month is done

January 2012

If one has past lives, in my last one I was a bear. I bulk up in the fall and want to sleep all through January - which works very well if you are a bear, but not so much for a human.

This January, I had some encouragement to stay awake after dark, and it is dark here by 4:30pm - ish, so a lot of the day is lost if you go to sleep once the sun is down.

First, Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap's Finish-a-long has been spurring me to finish last years  favourite projects. I have finished the quilt for my bed, I am making great progress on the Mystery QAL quilt and I have another finish to show off later this week.

Next, the Tangerine Tango Challenge and inspiration led to Shattered. And then there are quilting bees and swaps which have all been keeping me busy. Finally, I have been finishing some knitting off.

As we move into February, there will be more sunlight, which is good as there is lots more quilting planned for me. And it is time for some exercise too, my exercise buddy is soon going to disown me.

Please have a look at everyone's January projects over at Lily's Quilts where Lynne is hosting Fresh Sewing Day.
