How did it get to be February already?
January was a blur of activity - we had two different weekends of family gatherings and a third weekend with friends. I did make a little progress on my 2015 goal list:
I spent a little time on the Adelphi Hotel cross-stitch - I'm a little further ahead than this picture shows:
That's only one-third of the hotel - will it ever be done? Yes - someday!!!
I pieced a few more hexie-flowers but forgot to take a picture.
I finished two more monthly mini quilts.
"Let it Snow" for January:
and "Candy Hearts" for February, inspired by this picture:
I used the pre-programmed letter stitches on my sewing machine to simulate the stamped words on the candy hearts.
I also "fixed" my very first monthly mini quilt - the red hearts are from a pack of die cut hearts I bought from Keepsake Quilting back in the early 1990's! I think I started assembling this in 2009 or 2010 and finished it in 2011. Here's the way it looked originally:
As for the fabric diet - well that's going pretty well. I only bought a total of one yard in January. A half yard was for the backing of "Candy Hearts", so that doesn't count. I also bought two fat quarters - peach and light green for "Candy Hearts" since I did not have solids in those colors. So really, only a half yard of non-diet fabric! Sew far, sew good!
With one month in, how are you doing at your 2015 goals?
