January has been one busy month! Between ornaments and SAL pieces, I worked on 5 different pieces! The S’mores mitten makes 6 – and here it is finished as a flat mitten:
I am trying to choose a mitten for February …. I will have to see what appeals to me most!
I finished the Blue Country Teapot – a DMC UK kit I have had for a few years:
I hope to make a quilt with teapots, tea cups, etc at some point!
I also picked up a UFO from at least two years ago. This is the Waterlily Quilt by Chatelaine. I stitched the first 4 blocks, put the piece away, and was motivated to pick it up again for a UFO challenge on a yahoo group that I am on! I have part of the border stitched for the next row of blocks – not much, but every little bit counts! Would you believe that this is my only stitching UFO at the moment?
And, finally, I pulled out my ‘finished stitching’ box, and pulled this project to actually finish off! This is ‘You Were Hatched’ – a Teresa Wentzler limited edition chart that I stitched in 2005! My daughter has been waiting for me to frame this one for forever, and she received it for her 12th birthday this month! I do hope to Finish-finish one project a month this year.
