Fresh Sewing Day / Small Blog Meet

What did you do in January?  I did a check, and I feel like it was a good productive month.  Even though the month was full of construction in the house and I sometimes felt like there were 50 people in here at a time and the place would never be clean again.  It still isn't, but at least the construction is complete and I have a fresh faced bathroom.  Still going through wiping off EVERY surface in the house.  

1.  String Blocks for String Block Swap
2.  Bee block for Aqua & Orange Bee
3.  Japanese X Block for Threadheads Bee
4.  Toy Sack for my nephew
5.  Oilcloth iPad cover (for me!)
6. Proto-type pillow cover (my first!)
7.  Christmas Box Blocks for Sew Bee It
8.  My block for 4X5 Modern Quilt Bee
9.  Finished Quilt Tropical Paradise

There were a few more Bee blocks not included in this, the mosaic was just taking too long, and I also made Bow Tie blocks for the Bow Tie swap, but I didn't take a photo.  I took a break after January from the 4X5 and NuBees block exchange, to concentrate on a couple of new swaps involving Pincushions and Modern Fabric swappers.  After those I'll get back to the block exchanges.  It is my month in Jan for a group, in February and in March.  I'm working on getting the rest of those together.  Looks like a busy February too.  

This is where I should insert a button from Lilly's Quilts where you can see what other bloggers have been up to in January.  I can't quite figure out the button, but the link will take you there.

Hi just stopped by form the small blog meet. You got a lot done in January! I love your X and + block, they are so much fun. I'm doing a block swap with this block. I can't wait to follow you and keep up with all your doing :) I would love for you to stop by my blog when you get a chance and have a look around. I hope February is a productive month as well!
