There's a great benefit of winter and not being able to spend much time outside. You have more time for inside hobbies. I took full advantage of that in January. Probably my best accomplishment is finishing up 6 veterans quilts. The last one was started and finished this month.
I also quilted 4 veterans quilts for other members. All this means that I got the timing on my machine worked out and hit my goal of quilting at least 7 veterans quilts. It's really nice to be quilting again!
I wasn't in the mood to start a new quilt project early in the month so I spent some time making surgery drain bags. I ended up with 74 of them!
I did lots of crocheting and finished 2 hats and 1 baby blanket but I started 3 new projects: a big gift blanket, a cardigan and a large donation blanket.
I finally got some piecing inspiration when I decided to use a bin of well-aged fabric to make a lot of small lap quilts for donation. some will be kids blankets for a cancer camp and some will be wheelchair blankets.
I also started quilting a big quilt for my Mom. That one will be finished after I finish a new online quilting class that's all about quilting botanical elements.
My goals for February are:
- keep piecing lap quilts
- finish one more veterans quilt and quilt as many as are needed
- practice class quilting on the lap quilts
- finish the crochet cardigan
- finish quilting Mom's quilt (if I've gotten through enough og the class to know what I want to do)
