Gee, I can't believe January has come and gone. It has been a busy month. Usually January is so-o-o-o-o slow. With the holidays behind us and nothing really to look forward to, January usually drags on. But this year it seems to have gone by in a flash!
I just put the finishing touches on the wallhanging the gals at the shop are going to present to the owners of the Bread & Breakfast where we go for our shop retreat. We choose Civil War themed blocks to surround a picture of Magnolias and the name of the B & B. I do think it turned out great. It goes to the quilter today. (I've done my part!)
Two weeks until the retreat. Can't wait, a whole weekend to sew,
laugh and just be friends with some great gals.
I am also participating in the Applique Quilting Bee at Sew Original. However, I have choosen to do machine applique instead of hand. The first two blocks are ready for the the machine stitches. This is one of the projects I'm getting ready for the retreat!
I hope to get a few more ready before then.
Stay warm on this cold, cold day. Hopefully by the weekend it will be warmer.
