February Apologies...

I'm sorry. I just didn't get to write this month. I know there are people out there who check often and I have some swap photos I still need to show. It will happen I promise.

Here's hoping that March will be easier to keep up to date.

Warm wishes to everyone.

January finishes...

I am sure that most people by now and have seen something about the One Project A Month Challenge, being organised by Kris and May Britt. They have a mammoth job ahead of them to keep up with everybody and it probably doesn't help when people like myself don't post about it too much. So for my own benefit I am writing about the things I finished in January . There wasn't a lot of activity here - most of the month was school holidays and everyone was feeling a bit slower than usual. It wasn't a month for finishing too many older projects either but I am going to be working on that over the next few months. ( I'll talk about the things I have been digging out to finish as I do them).

The first finish ( and it was a start too) was the challenge quilt for BQL ( British Quilt List - yahoo group). This is for a monthly small quilt to be used for a calendar. This was my effort. I used all Stargazey fabrics from my stash and I don't mind it at all. I tried and learnt some new things and at times I didn't think my choices were working but in the end it is fine.

There are two other things which I made and finished too but I can't show them here yet as they are for a Valentine Swap. And there is one more little bag but I will post a photo of that next time.
There are lots of lovely new ideas and patterns around which I would like to do too, but I am going to try to include one item which was not started this year in each month. That's just a personal challenge to myself.

Now, how do I list the mending that was completed as well - just to make the sidebar list look more impressive?
