WiP - January

  January was pretty much a vast wasteland of upper respiratory infections here. I suffered through a two week cold, had a whole week of healthiness, then the young petri dish brought home a fresh version and we all went down again with the crud...one by one...

I spent the last weekend disinfecting every inch of the house and spraying disinfectant in the face of anyone who coughed. {Okay, not that dramatic...but I did tell both kids not to touch anyone at school.} So my sewing was limited to a few blocks and adding the binding to stuff that was already close to done.

Like Flying Four - it was quilted back in June, so finishing it was pretty easy.

And my FMQ Sampler - just needed binding for over a year. It's a good thing I keep these things around, huh?

The other major thing I managed to do was finish the Army Medallion and quilt it. Which taxed all my energy for two days, so I haven't tackled tying off all the loose threads...or even unpinning it from the longarm zippers. Which is my OMG goal for February, because this was a Christmas present.

Oh! I did manage to put this together during my brief healthy period. Everything was cut out, so it just took 90 minutes to lay it out and stitch it together. Now I just need to get a backing and add it to the quilting queue!

I also pulled out my sister's wedding signature quilt and started peeling the squares off the card stock. Shouldn't be too hard to finish this one off, either.

Oh! And I finished my OMG goal! Added the last border, and even made the binding before putting it on the to-be-quilted pile. It needs a backing, too. It'll be shopping time soon. When I feel like I can face the public without disinfectant wipes.

Other than that, it was a few blocks when I felt like sitting down at the machine. Purple nine patches for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge....

...the mini for a pink Instagram swap...

...and my first Eternal Bloom.

I'm really looking forward to feeling better now, and getting some more things done. Please, please, let this current round of health last!
