January - part 1 done, 2 to go
Little happy dance here! Part 1 of January projects is done. Its probably the largest task for the month, so to have it done on 12 January feels SO good.
I'm in a group of 6 quilters who get together on an ad hoc basis through the year. In 2012, we decided to have a project as a group, and came up with the idea of a Row x Row.
To cut a long story short, completing Jan's row (her brief was "houses") should have been done by 18 December 2012. Alas, all I had done by that date was the background (sky, grass and road) and bits of two of the houses planned. So this week there was lots of vliesofixing followed by many thread changes as I machine blanket-stitched all the raw edges.
Its done now, and here it is....
.... my wonky houses row for Jan. Its 9" x 37" unfinished.
Now onto part 2... some star blocks for Di, her request for the RxR.
How's everyone else going?
