January in Pictures

It's February! Yay! The longest, darkest month of the year is over, and I for one am looking forward to Spring. Looking back at what I achieved during January, it seems that there are a lot of works in progress, but not a lot of finishes.
Note to self for February: Start less and finish more!!
The biggest achievement of the month was the economy block quilt top, pictured above. It's made entirely with scraps. Don't you just love it when something good comes from the scraps!

Second on the list is three block tutorials:
The card trick block

The economy block

and a curved piecing block

All the tutorials can be found in the Block Buster Sunday tab at the top of the page.

I also finished the penultimate strip for the Strip Bee that I'm in.
Only sneak peeks allowed, and its a bit blurry, but this is a tiny bit of my strip. I think I'm in love with text prints at the moment

The only proper finish of the month was a knitted one, a cardigan for me!

The aim for February is to have a few more finishes, and they'll probably be the small and cute kind. My great niece is due to be born in a week or so's time!
