January Come and Gone

Here's a pic from Breckenridge where we started out the month of January.

Being back in school has drained all of us of any and all enjoyments.  Even Regan and Roxy have taken to staring matches to pass the time.

I've spent some time at my sewing machine and I really had hoped to have the value quilt top finished by today, but it looks like January will come and go without a finish.  Ah, well.

I have had more time to work on Bertha's quilt.  A cold front moved in and it really is perfect lounging on the couch with this blanket to keep me warm while I watch Jane Austen movies and Gilmore Girls. 

Everytime my mom sees it, she comments that the quilting really makes it look better.  Poor, sad little quilt top.  One day, you will be beautiful!

And last, but not least, my mother-in-law, Evelyn, brought me some vintage sheets this weekend to add to my stash (thanks again!)  Some "whites" to add to my blues and yellows that I already have.  I really should consider cutting them up into fat quarters to make them more user friendly.  One of these days....

Ok, February...2 finishes are in your future!

I love the pic of your 2 cats staring at each other!

Breckenridge looks stunning.

Thanks for linking to our blog Abby. Picking fabric is a favorite for Patti and me. There is so much neat stuff out there.
Tell Erik that he does not understand what a big sacrifice you are making. What is he giving up????
