My January

Nicholas & Wheelie Pete making an alcohol stove
Here's a quick look-back at this month.  Well, maybe not so quick.  This final week is a short week--the end of the semester is Wednesday and the kidlets don't have school on Thursday or Friday ...

January ALOYF Finish--Charm Topper


I'm really happy with this finish.  I started it about a year ago when A Quilting Life posted these pics.  I had a couple mini-charm packs hanging around, but I didn't get it finished in time for Sherri's parade, and it was set gently aside ...

Welcome 2015!


This year is off to a bit of a slow start for me, but I'm rarin' to go!  Looking back at my goals for last year, I did pretty well, but I do need to move a couple of them forward ...

Stash Bee Hive #7--January Tutorial--Hunter's Star

Hello, Hive #7!
I'm excited to get to know you guys this year.  You had a quick overview of me in my intro here a couple of months ago.  You can also read my About Me page on my blog if you still want to know more.  I've spent the last couple of months preparing for and taking my teacher licensure tests--in fact, my last three are tomorrow (Jan 2.)

The Year of the Bee

This year I participated in 2 bees for myself and one with Sarah.  I really like the satisfaction of finishing these mini projects each month.  Even when I don't churn out a full-sized anything, I still feel accomplished =)

Stash Bee, Round 2
This year there were so many varied blocks!  I got my Random Bamboo blocks put together in March, but am just getting around to having it quilted.  It will be the first time I send something out to be long-arm quilted.  I'm really excited =)

ALOYF December Finish


I'm pleased with my finish this month.  It's a little out of season, I know, but its another finish to help clear off my workspace.  The individual hexies were paper-pieced back during the summer, but then piled up awaiting further attention.
