Consequently, I didn't finish as many projects as I did in 2011 and 2012.
I did, however, work on several of my UFO's so they are closer to finishing and completed a couple!
Yea me, for progress!!
No projects finished in January, but I worked on several.
I completed this "Cape Cod" Large Lap Quilt for my daughter, Nicole, in bright and sunny yellows and teals. I love the movement in this quilt, and backing it with minkie makes it so soft and cozy!
Another completed project was a "Night and Day" Lap Quilt for Lisa, a long-time friend (pattern is an Eleanor Burns' pattern) made of two pretty batiks.
We spent the month in Arizona for Spring Training in our RV.
I was able to sew on 2 family quilts, when we weren't attending baseball games or golfing, but No Finishes.
I made this diamond baby quilt called "Big Top" for our youngest grandson, Seth. Angelina (DIL) picked the pattern and the fabrics, which are similar to his big brother Micah's quilt.
I also finished a Hand Knit Scarf for my daughter that matches her fingerless hand warmers, modeled by Nicole!
I made a Set of 4 Napkins,
a Minkie Ni-Nite with Satin trim, for my grandson, Brody; and
a Minkie Ninny (sm blankie) with Satin trim, for my grandson, Seth!
I also made another Hand Knit Scarf for my friend Donna!
I made myself a "Strings" Lap Quilt last year, and Angelina (DIL) loved it. So I made her one, her first quilt, and backed it with soft and cuddly brown minkie.
I made this "Friendship Hugs" Lap Quilt for my friend Sue, for her birthday. This pattern has quickly become one of my favorites to make. It's a simple pattern made mostly of 2.5" squares but looks great. Sue's quilt is made of batiks!
No Finishes this month. We were on vacation in Northern California, Oregon and Washington. I did work on a couple of UFO'S in our RV.
I made a Blanket Sleeper, a gift for a friend's Baby Girl,
a Set of Napkins for our RV, and
two Summer dresses for Me!
I finished a Hand Knit Shawl for Me (that matches a long dress) for our Australian/New Zealand cruise.
We were Cruising Australia and New Zealand for three weeks!!
I made another Baby Blanket Sleeper gift for a friend's new baby,
a Set of 8 Placements for Nicole and family, (as seen with two of the cutest grankiddos!!)
and two Christmas Stockings for baby Seth (one for mommy and daddy's house and one for Yaya and Papa's house).
I feel such a sense of accomplishment when I complete a creative project, especially one that has been patiently waiting for me to finish it! Best of all, I feel such gratitude that I am able to share my creativity with others.
