First Finishes and Accountability

I have one more week off work so I'm trying to get everything 
together/organized before heading back. I have so many projects at 
various stages of completion that I don't even count or consider some 
when taking inventory of my Works In Progress (WIP). 
Sad huh?  
In an effort to take back control I thought I would join in 
Each month I will attempt to complete one project or part of the project, 
post it and join their link up.

For January I will be working on my quilt for do. Good Stitches, Cheer Group. 
I need to make about 12 of these blocks to have a good size top. 
The actual goal is to make the blocks and complete the top. 
I wont be able to get it layered, basted and quilted this month,
but at least it will be on its way to done. 

Here's a few fluttering butterflies from the members of the Cheer Group


Head on over to the Link Up for A lovely Year of Finishes and
get inspired to work on some of your projects or just cheer us all on.

And now for my first few finishes of the year.


Two of my grandchildren got kitchens for Christmas so they needed a couple oven mitts.
This is my own pattern and my second attempt to get everything worked out how I wanted.
I'm happy with the way they turned out.
Now I just need to make about 4 more.


Then, I made these little pillows.
The adult pillows were just too large for the children's little necks.
I made the pillow insert and the cases. I actually made four pillows and eight cases.
I think they're cute, hopefully the children will love them.


I'll be back soon with the last finish of 2012.
I have photos, but my daughter has better ones.

Hope your New Year is off to a great start.

Happy Stitching
