Progress, and I won at the Block Lotto!!

I have made progress on all of my projects. First, I actually finished one of the socks I was knitting. I am so excited about this, and it fits perfectly. Lots of little mistakes but the finished product is OK with me. I did wear it around the house all evening. One more to go.

The February lotto blocks are now posted, so I can show you mine. They are really cute ones.

I have a quilt on the frame ready to go, even basted around the edges. Just can't decide on what pattern to quilt. This one reminds me of a picnic quilt. I want to freemo, any suggestions? I quilt with a Juki, and I float my tops.

The jar cabinet has the "hold it in place " stitching done. (I went brain dead and can't remember the word for that, lol. " I'm going to do it on the Bernina as I think it needs more detail than I can do on the frame.

And I finally won some blocks on the Block Lotto!! I made 8 entries and will just keep mine, and I will get 22 others sent to me. Cool! Here are my 8.

I think I will use these to make a quilt for my favorite charity, Guardian ad Litem.

I think I did pretty well in January. Now to finish up everything in February, and see what else I can get going.

I love those heart blocks on the black - what size are they? Hmm just pulled all the red fabrics from one scrap bin and on some Kona black would be striking. I just got my 'picnic' quilt back from my long armer - she did a very open loose swirly vine with leaf - very light and airy, whimsical which went so perfect with the 'picnic'. Congratulations on the block lotto win - I love coin quilts and lovely thought to donate it. Pop over - I have a Thank You give away for my followers.

Oh, those heart blocks are great. Have seen them made that way.

I laughed at the idea of you walking around wearing one sock. Beautiful sock it is. How did your other foot feel? Jealous?

Won Block Lotto? Congratulations.
By the way, love your heart blocks. I've never tried to make one.

I'm chuckling thinking of you walking around the house in one sock - sounds like something I would do. Great sock, by the way. And congrats on the block lotto win - that's fantastic!
