So Long January 2014!

Didn't it just fly by?

For me, putting a goal in writing and linking it up is a sure-fire way to get a finish, at least when it is quilt related:-) This is mostly because I don't commit easily to future intentions in my creative space. Early January, (WEEKS ago!), I linked up with  A Year of Lovely Finishes and said that I would finish Purple Kisses this month.
I should have said I would finish quilting the partial spaces on the edges, the little border, and one line down the center of all the purple X's...

That was probably 5 or 6 hours on Mr. Juki. I am not real fast when it comes to FMQ!
I intend to have this done by Valentine's Day, so Purple Kisses will now have to be my February commitment for AYOLF!

Distracted mid-month by my friend's birthday, I decided to make something special to celebrate.
..Hers and Hers BFF Jewelry Rolls!
I posted more about them here (last week), 

Linking up with Barbara at Cat Patches to celebrate all the January NewFO's!

And with Sew BitterSweet Designs for A Year of Lovely Finishes!


  1. Well I can certainly understand why you didn't finish it in January - that's a lot of fmq work!!! It's looking gorgeous too :) You don't want to rush that - give it all the time it needs so it can be just as beautiful as it is promising to be!

  2. Purple Kisses is looking quite lovely. I love the colors.

  3. Cute! January must be a purple month. Nice work.

  4. Love the jewelry rolls, and you're doing some nice, intense FMQ there, so don't worry one bit about going into another month! Going to be worth it.

  5. I tried the lovely finish thing . . . but didn't even touch that project! darn baby quilts got in the way. and maybe a few new projects, too. =) your quilting is looking great, by the way! done in February?

  6. It looks great so far. Best wishes for finishing it in February.
