Jan Update and Feb Goals

Yikes, it's the end of January!  I saw it coming but somehow it caught me by surprise.

I'm so very happy with my January accomplishments.  

My list for January:
Find Angela's center block - Done
Sew that block - Yippie Kyai
Rearrange my sewing room & Set up my sewing machine - Yes, and cleaned it up nice too!
Quilt Christmas tree block - No, didn't do this. Didn't even try.
Bind the Christmas tree block - Nope, ditto on this. 
Work on by Christmas Stocking - Yes! I've really been working on this.
So that is 4 out of 6 goals met! That's good!

So now on to February!  

1. Figure out placement of blocks for Angel'a quilt (Feather's Star Quilt) 
2. Sandwich the Christmas block to be quilted. 
3. Find backing fabric for Green and Brown quilt.
4. Continue working on my stocking. 

I'm really excited because I'm starting Three New Block of the Months!  (I know, I know! You don't have to tell me, I know I'm crazy!)

1. Terrier Town BOM
2.  Blue BOM from LQS
3.  Sully Threads Jan BOM

I wanted to number the BOM's starting at 1 again so that it wouldn't seem like I have so much to do. (That silly idea is working!)

Happy Stitching, 

I'm linking up with  Pigtales & Quilts "To Do List" and Judy's Get it Done,
Lily's Quilts, Fresh Showing Day, and Lynne over at Never to Hot to Stitch .


  1. Wow - your feathered star block is amazing. Cleaning and rearranging a sewing room is a huge task if it is anything like mine. Enjoy your BOMs.

  2. You do well with lists, too, don't you? I love that feathered star.

  3. That feathered star is a real showstopper! It's beautiful :)
    Cleaning up my space is an idea too add to February's list, or maybe March, or .....

  4. Bravo on your finishes!! I will be creating a new post on my blog for the February Monthly To-Do List Linky Party so come on over in the morning and link up this post to it.

  5. Can't wait to see your blocks of the month.. I started two of them this year too. And your star is gorgeous, and that stocking, wow, just wow. :) You're awesome!

  6. Thanks for coming over and linking up Linda! Good luck on your February finishes! :)

  7. The Christmas stocking is very cute. Would not mind having one for me. lol XXKathleeen

  8. Beautiful feathered star! And you cleaned and organized your sewing room too + reaching other goals? Way to go!

  9. I love your stocking. It is amazing! Cool! I am doing 3 BOMs, too. They should put us in the nuthouse together so we can take care of each other.

  10. You did well in January. Love the block at the top of your post and your Christmas stocking.
