Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

January Recap



At the beginning of the month I listed 4 things I wanted to accomplish in my quilting:

  • Bind the 2006 Retreat Mystery quilt
  • Make TNBC block using Faux Applique technique
  • Complete the center of the Eeyore quilt
  • Work on the Double Wedding Ring Quilt

I didn’t get them all done, but I think I’ve figured out why.


There were the 11 books I read.  Outlander , Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager and A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows by Diana Gabaldon; The Union Quilter and The Wedding Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini; The Enchanted Land by Jude Deveraux; A Highlander in Her Past by Maeve Greyson; Victorian Dream by Gini Rifkin; A Matter of Class by Mary Balogh and Crystal Gardens by Amanda Quick. The ones not pictured were read on my Kindle.  They were either free from Amazon.com at the time I downloaded them or I borrowed them from my library through Overdrive.


I was in the kitchen trying new recipes using spinach, cream corn, and tofu.



A couple of new projects were started and I finished the first section of Just Takes 2.


I processed the pile of shirts I bought from the thrift shop (I haven’t done a thing yet with the box of shirts I was sent.)


My husband and I joined a gym and I’ve managed to get there 8 times so far.  At the moment we are primarily using the walking track to get us out of the elements. Baby steps toward fitness.

Later I’ll figure out my 4 goals for Judy’s Getting It Done. Who knows, there’s still a few more hours left in the day.

In the meantime, I’m linking up to a Lovely Year of Finishes.

Edited to add February’s Getting It Done list.

  • The “B” block in Dorothy Young’s BOM
  • The next set of blocks for TNBC
  • Visible progress on my DWR
  • The center of the Eeyore quilt (isn’t this a repeat)

I’ve linked up to Judy’s Getting it Done over at Patchwork Times.

3 Thoughts on “January Recap

  1. How did you like the first 3 Outlander books? Julie from Intrepid Thread got me hooked on them last year!

  2. You did get a lot done in January, even if it was not from your list!

    I love your scrappy mystery quilt and the blue and gray/snow white fabric, sampler quilt. I can relate about reading. You have given me some new authors to look at. Thank you
