January 2020 was a month of few stitching opportunities.
I did finish three cross stitch ornaments that had to be replaced due to my killer cat tearing them apart in previous Christmas seasons.
We made our regular trek to somewhere warmer...Kauai...where it rained almost all day...all seven days we were there. But it was a warm rain while temperatures at home were sub-zero.
On our way home we diverted to Oregon where we met the newest Bailey family member, our granddaughter, Kate. I love babies anyway...but it really was wonderful to hold this little bundle.
Just two days after getting home it was Breakfast Club!
I did my own project. I just love this book...
I had to start the pattern, "Madame Butterfly."
My design wall has the four blocks I managed to finish at class. There are 18 projects in this book for charm squares and I like so many of them. Fun book.
I have completed the hand applique parts of the motorcycle on the newest stocking under construction.
I did load a quilt on my frame and got a bit of it started. I hope this will go quickly. My next quilt retreat starts February 6th. It would be nice to tackle the binding at retreat.
The second biggest news (after #1 granddaughter), is the sun has returned to shining on our house. We lose it for a couple of months every winter. Very happy to get it back. It was -12 on our dog walk today but it felt warmer...like it was a balmy 2 degrees.
