Farewell to January
In January I made some bee blocks, a Triple-Zip Pouch and some lovely travelling bags for my quilts that have now arrived in Texas.
It seemed like I was sewing more than that and when I checked I had been. I worked on a swap item that I cannot show you until mid February, and I worked on my 4 in Art quilt which I will show you tomorrow, which is the challenge reveal day.
I quilted and quilted and quilted my Mod Pop and made its binding. I should be able to trim this king size quilt and sew on the binding over the weekend.
I also quilted my scrappy trip along quilt. I expect I can make it a scrappy binding, trim the quilt and sew on the binding soon too. So I will, hopefully, have two finished quilts to show you in February, both of which are on my Finish-A-Long list.
Thank you to everyone for the kind words about my dog. He is finally coming home this afternoon. He likes to sleep beside me while I sew and although he is clearly on the mend, he has a ways to go before he will be fully better. I expect that I will have to sew a lot so he can sleep a lot this weekend. Right?
Tomorrow I will link up with Fresh Sewing Day, hosted by the lovely Lynne at Lily's Quilts and when I am not sewing on the weekend, I will be checking out all the beautiful things everyone else made in January. You should link and visit too.
