January's color is blue--I made this blue block using the Missouri Star Pattern "4-Patch Stars"--
A very simple block and I'm using leftover 4 patches from several years ago in the center. A few each month will yield a nice size quilt. Please see what everyone is working on at SoScrappy.
Lorri2Rs was here for a visit. Look what she did--
I'd sorted my leftover bits of batting by type and early one morning she sewed the scraps together into usable size batts--she even labeled them with the size! Thank you Lorri!!
Last year I made Monkey Wrench/9 Path blocks and I've gotten them set together--
The borders are made but not on--they are the striped fabric with a narrow blue strip.
A completed quilt found a new home--
Cecely has graduated from college and will be moving to Nashville. I was lucky to volunteer with Cecely, I am so going to miss her! Cecely has worked three years for the Army Corps of Engineers as a Park Ranger while in college. Lucky is the company who hires her!!
The weather has turned COLD! We have a little new snow but not much. Groceries were bought on Thursday and I plan to stay inside all weekend and sew. Some peasant stew with lots of black eyed peas and kale sounds good. Ken is a good sport and eats it but I will make him something he likes too. He doesn't share my love of dried beans and green things! Ken has one great food love--a burger.
Has the new year brought you lots of sewing time? Are you finishing any old projects? Started any new ones? How are your resolutions?
