Fresh Sewing Day - January Edition

'January - sick and tired you've been hanging on me' 

Forgive me for feeling ever so slightly smug but last month I turned 2 quilt tops and a pile of blocks in to three finished quilts. This is a personal record.  Likely never to be repeated.  


I continued to work on my bee blocks and still have a couple of outstanding ones, which I shall finish over the next couple of days.


January was the month I celebrated my 2 year blog anniversary, or rather didn't.  Keep your eyes out for a belated giveway...coming soon!

And here's a mobile phone snapshot of our non-sewing January.

Tomorrow I shall link up with Lynne and her Fresh Sewing Day.  Head on over there for lots of inspiration of the sewing variety.

You're quite right to be smug! Three quilts and some gorgeous blocks! What a great start to the year :)

Yay for 3 quilts! Not something I'm ever likely to achieve anyway lol

Leanne said...

Those three quilts are each wonderful! And lovely blocks too. I also love all the not quilting pictures.

Nicole said...

Happy anniversary, Annabella!
And congrats on the three quilts. They are all lovely. I especially love the brightly colored ones!

You had an amazing month. And I've just decided that Zaki photographs like one of the gorgeous children in the Mini Boden catalogue.

You have every right to be smug- three beautiful quilts finished and being loved! I am particularly taken with your EEEP EEP Bee Block. Do you have a link for that?

Charlotte said...

I am so impressed with your productivity! Beautiful finishes :-D

Nadine said...

Very impressive. Well done for finishing 3 quilts. And big ones too. I finished 4 last month but they were only baby quilts and I had been working on them forever. Making a large quilt would probably take me months.

Adrianne said...

Congratulations on your productive month and your bloggiversary! All of your latest quilts are stunning!

Hitch and Thread said...

3 quilts is a Huge achievement! The way you've quilted them adds a great layer of texture too.
