January finish & progress

Way back in 2007, I made this top with some scrappy nine patches and Winnie the Pooh fabric. It is now quilted, bound and delivered. The Underground Railroad will be the recipient.

I've been working on many of my stitchery projects. The Christmas Wishes BOTM from Gail Pan is now a top. I'm working on the Raggedy Ann and Andy BOTM from The Painted Quilt and am half done with the BOTM blocks for Redwork Seasons by Paula Stoddard. Also have the first two blocks from Barbara Brackman's Civil War blog done and working on the third one. The little sampler is framed and my sewing room is getting an overhaul. (the latter will take some time)

Happy New Year!

I have a good feeling about 2011. The key word will be 'finish' instead of buy. I hope to get at least one UFO finished each month.

My New Year's Eve was spent in a hospital bed after having surgery last Tuesday. Today I was able to go home and that feels good. In a couple more weeks, I should be better than I've been in a long time.

Happy New Year!
