January Recap January 31, 2013Posted by knitnoid in Uncategorized.
At the beginning of the month I listed 4 things I wanted to accomplish in my quilting:
- Bind the 2006 Retreat Mystery quilt
- Make TNBC block using Faux Applique technique
- Complete the center of the Eeyore quilt
- Work on the Double Wedding Ring Quilt
I didn’t get them all done, but I think I’ve figured out why.
There were the 11 books I read. Outlander , Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager and A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows by Diana Gabaldon; The Union Quilter and The Wedding Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini; The Enchanted Land by Jude Deveraux; A Highlander in Her Past by Maeve Greyson; Victorian Dream by Gini Rifkin; A Matter of Class by Mary Balogh and Crystal Gardens by Amanda Quick. The ones not pictured were read on my Kindle. They were either free from Amazon.com at the time I downloaded them or I borrowed them from my library through Overdrive.
A couple of new projects were started and I finished the first section of Just Takes 2.
I processed the pile of shirts I bought from the thrift shop (I haven’t done a thing yet with the box of shirts I was sent.)
My husband and I joined a gym and I’ve managed to get there 8 times so far. At the moment we are primarily using the walking track to get us out of the elements. Baby steps toward fitness.
Later I’ll figure out my 4 goals for Judy’s Getting It Done. Who knows, there’s still a few more hours left in the day.
In the meantime, I’m linking up to a Lovely Year of Finishes.
Edited to add February’s Getting It Done list.
- The “B” block in Dorothy Young’s BOM
- The next set of blocks for TNBC
- Visible progress on my DWR
- The center of the Eeyore quilt (isn’t this a repeat)
I’ve linked up to Judy’s Getting it Done over at Patchwork Times.
