January is here - Wow! But of course I did know it was coming it wasn't a surprise. Our New Year Eve was not the event we had planned. There is a Cold and Flu that has hit our area and is kicking a lot of hiney's around here which included my hubby's - starting on New Years eve. The hospital is full and even sending people with Pneumonia home. So, we've been laying low and I've been doing some hand stitching.
I think I posted in my last post ... Yep just checked, that I wanted to work on Christmas and Winter projects most of the year because a couple of months before Christmas each year is not enough time to get all these cute Santa's and Snowmen finished. Sew - with that in mind, my first UFO and project for the month and year is this one - Let it Snow. This was a BOM from Buttermilk Basin in 2016 I believe and I want to finish it up.
I need to finish the hand stitching of the two blocks on the right side and then add my borders and quilt.
I will also be linking this up to OMG at Elm Street Quilts.
I am also working at down sizing my scrap stash - so I am cutting up scraps. For my organization I chose 5 patterns that I want to use and I'm putting them into piles accordingly. I am also using the random monthly color suggestions from Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Each month she gives a color and a link up. This month is light blue. I'll post a little more about that later.
Hope you have a Blessed day filled with lots of sewing.
