So long, January!

Saturday, Connie and I attended a small quilt show up north that is held in a former church. Here are a few of my favorites. The first is a Quilt of Valor with an embroidered pillowcase.

Monday was Bee day at Jane's house. We enjoyed pineapple upside down cake as our treat. My finishes were smaller this month, but still finishes. Connie gave me these little waste triangle units years ago and I always wanted to make something from it. Finally, they became a little zipper pouch.

Everyone is making the lacy scarves around here. This is my first one and I don't even knit. Connie showed me how to do it with Red Heart Sashey Yarn and a pair of size 9 knitting needles. One skein makes a scarf.

And, I made one little house!

Thanks for sharing the quilt show, so many baskets in that one quilt.

I liked your finish and the cat in the house window.

Wow! Some nice quilts. The applique quilts are my favorite.
I am glad January is over. Seems like it lasted forever. I am ready for spring.

Love the Quilt of Valor, love the sampler quilt, love love LOVE the basket applique quilt with the dancing girl border. Thanks for sharing!

Your finishes are terrific. I recognize those triangles. Several women in my bee used that fabric over and over again to make very pretty things. My favorite thing is your cat in the window. How clever! Your house is the best. 8)

Take care,

I got one of those scarves for Christmas and I love it! I thought it looked really hard to knit!

You've sure been busy Jeanne, and I love all of it. I love that basket quilt from the quilt show. I've been working on those things since the book came out. The little zipper bag is great, too. Cute little cat in the window of your house. I found some of that Sashey yarn over at Yoders at the retreat...my daughter made the scarf, and I haven't seen it since.
