End-of-Month Report - Jan 2013

It's a good start for a year of finishes and UFO slaying! 

Thanks to Carrie,   



and Lynne for the excellent motivation this year!!  Never Too Hot To Stitch!


For January I'd pulled 3 UFOs to try and finish, and I had a gift I needed to make post-haste that wouldn't be filled by any of my UFOs.

So how'd it go?

1. While Heather was still home for the holidays, we finished her Synergistic Windmills, a wonderful queen-sized geometric study. This is a UFO that was started summer of 2010 and lurched forward bit by bit during college breaks.  

2. I succeeded in FINALLY finishing twin-sized Marissa's Moment of Caprice, also started in 2010.



(3. Hawaiian Etude) - well, I got it moved forward significantly but it lacks maybe 2 more hours of hand quilting. 



Hey! Two out of three UFOs is not bad at all, considering the enormous amount of work Caprice demanded and the fact that I had to whip together this puppy out of my stash:


4. Patrick's Hounds' Blues - A real hit, to be blogged on Friday.  :)



So, 3 finishes this month! I'm sure that pace will slow down when the easier finishes are squared away. I only have so many projects that just need binding.  ;D

How did you do on your finishes in January?  Jump on in and join one of the parties I linked above. Nothing like Blogosphere camaraderie to motivate us!
