One Project a Month Challenge

It has been a while since I posted, so best get busy, I think. I saw my friend at Linda Quilts Too saying she had signed up on the One Project a Month Challenge, and I decided I better not let her get one over on me, so I signed up also. I think it will be fun. January might be a little slow for me to accomplish much because we are making a trip to CA for about 10 days, but since I can't handle my hands being idle, maybe I'll get something done. I do have a baby quilt I have to finish for my niece's baby that is due to be delivered on Feb. 2, so maybe I can get that ready for quilting between our grandson's basketball games this weekend, our granddaughter's dance recital, and pro football games on TV.

I started crocheting a ripple afghan last night. I haven't done a project like that for many, many years. I am really enjoying it, and will take that with me to CA to work on while we drive.

I also have been working on my large Thimbleberries Lakeside BOM that I did in 2008. I know that I am a glutton for punishment, but I am increasing the size of it to fit our king-sized bed. That definitely will not be finished in January.

Since I don't have any quilting pics to show now, I will show you a pic of our darling grandchildren on the first day of our big snowstorm in December. They were in our bakyard, and were so excited, but the snow was so dry, that it was hard to make a snowman.


  1. I want to join too! I will see if I can figure out how to add the link! If not I know where to find you.

  2. So cute:)
    Looking forward to pictures of your Thimbleberries quilt. I love Thimbleberries. I've never joined in with the club stuff though. I have a few of Lynette's books and a sampler pattern bought years ago. I discovered a friend of mine had the same pattern and for the past 2 to 3 years we've been planning to make it a BOM challenge between us two. So far I've made one block and my friend 2.LOL... so many other things on the go.
    I'm sorry I missed your question on my blog about the hexagon bag. I just measured it and it is about 9inch wide by 7 inch high. It's a bit of a Tardis bag as I can get loads in so it's bigger than it looks :)) Hugs Elly
