Closing out January

January is drawing to a close and I'm feeling pretty good about what I accomplished this month.  I'm still hoping to make some serious dents in my stash and my unfinished projects this year. This is a respectable beginning.  My January goals were . . .
  • RSC15 sampler blocks - blue blocks are done
  • guild round robin section for January - added my round to Connie's quilt 
  • 2 blue 30s elephant blocks - Yes!
  • hand quilt another section of Beach-theme wedding quilt - NOT EVEN TOUCHED! 
  • 10 blue/green Trip Around The World blocks - NOPE! but strips are cut & organized into sets
  • 3 mini Valentine table runners - Yes!
  • Sew Vintage heart challenge mug rug Yes!
  • sew rows together for RSC14 Pigtail quilt - Yes!
  • finish hand applique of red Hawaiian table topper Yes & has borders added!
  • bind Paris baby quilt - Yes & it's all ready to gift to the new mom!

And what else did I do that wasn't on my goal list?  
  • made 3 pillowcases
  • finished my autumn Mystery Quilt (quilted & bound) 
  • signed up to do a new Saturday Sampler program
  • joined a friendship block swap with 13 blocks due in June
  • began tracking my fabric "in and out" for the year
  • sewed 1 Batik Star block for another UFO - 3 more to do
  • made 4 pinwheel blocks to test a pattern size (10" blocks)


  1. WaHoo! You accomplished a lot in January. Nice job.

  2. Wow Sara! You had an excellent month I'd say.
