Happy January!!

Looks like I blew right by the holidays!! Hope everyone had a wonderful season of family and friends...and getting last minute projects done! I did have 3 more finished for the year, 2 baby quilts for a soon to be great niece and 1 for her big sister. I had posted about working on them from leftovers from Judy, but I don't think I ever posted the finished projects. Here they are: I can't get the next picture to load, so I will have to play with that later. I do have lots of plans for the new year. 1) My scrap box challenge. I was apparently very lax with cutting down my scraps (and other people's scraps when they were given to me) and it resulted in a huge box and 2 bags FULL of scraps that aren't cut down. Any new quilt I start is to be made fully from these (except borders and backings). I could just spend weeks cutting them down and putting them away with the other scraps, but I thought this might be more fun to see what I could come up with. Most are LITTLE scraps so we'll see!! 2) My Cobbled Court Quilt Circle sisters are working on a UFO challenge. We list 6 (who has only 6????) and each month Kathy will pick a number and we work on that project. I picked 2 projects for each to be quilted and one to be pieced and quilted. Should get a lot done that way!!! I have a lot more odds and ends to share, but I think I'll save them for further posts. So, happy stitching to all and here's to a productive weekend!!!
