Thanks to Carrie,
and Lynne for the excellent motivation this year!!
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!
