Doesn't it seem as though we were just opening all those Christmas presents? Well, with the start of the new year, comes the beginning of a few (...ahem...) new BOM's.I tried. I really tried. I even waited until February. I couldn't help it...I had to join. It has sheep. Not in the first two sections, but a little bit later. What more can I say? You know that compulsion that overtakes all reasoning. I joined the new Quilt Show BOM for this year. It's Janet Stone's, ABC's with(for) Ewe and Me. I have seen the title both ways. Oh...and my letters and stars are wool felt (gotta get that felt in there somewhere!)
Here is January's part::
Now to wait almost a whole month for the next part.:((

And here we have another freebie BOM from P3 Designs. Gotta love those free ones! This is my version of the first block, the Hollyhock. Only a few more days until the next one!

The Wish Quilt, by Red Brolly, is a quilt that I almost finished during the time of its initial release. However, running into a road block with one of my little star blocks, I stopped working on it. The thought of doing all the remaining checkerboard blocks was a factor, as well.
However, once the star block hurdle was crossed, I moved forward with those checkerboards. And...lookee here! It is almost completed. Four little applique hearts are to be applied to the dark burgundy rectangles, and the outer border, and it will be done!
Now to audition those fabrics for the outer border. ;0
Another one that has languished is my Bluebirds and Berriess by Gail Pan Designs. Mine will have to be called Blackbirds and Berries....
Another one that just needs the outer borders. Who knows?? Maybe two more finishes before Christmas!

...and no, I haven't forgotten Part 4. I had started doing the flowers for Part 4 in broderie perse. I eventually made the decision that I did not like my choices. Took them off and now have to redo those parts. But...here is Part 5 with quite a few little extras of embroidery added.
