Hard to believe it's the last day of 2013. Especially since I've been sick since just after Christmas. What I thought was just sinus crud morphed into a cold and I've been in bed most of the time since we got home from our Christmas trip to see the family. Consequently, not much has happened in the sewing room. I'm hoping the worst is past and that I'll feel more like myself my last two days of vacation so I can enjoy some play time in the sewing room.
I did find time to start Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice mystery before Christmas got so hectic. That's my December NewFO. Last night I did manage to stitch up 2 blocks of clue 5 that was released last Friday. That was all I managed before the cold medication kicked in and my eye lids got too heavy to hold up.
None of the clues are finished, but I've been starting on each new clue while working on the older ones.
I've made the most progress on the 4 patches, there's another 10 of those piled in stack that aren't on the design wall. I should at least be able to start assembling the blocks when we finally get to that point.
Looking back at this year, I've started 12 quilts.
Of those 12, I've finished two. So that's 10 projects left on the WIP list (I don't consider a project a UFO till it's a year old). It's been a good year for starts in my sewing room. Now I just need to get working on a few finishes.
Check out all the NewFOs over at Cat Patches. I'm also linking up with Bonnie Hunter's Week 5 linky party. I'm a day late to that linky, but that's better than never.
Other than some lingering congestion and a bit of a headache, I seem to be over the worst of the cold. I hope that means some significant stitching time is in my future this afternoon. That's probably the most excitement I'm going to be able to handle this New Year's Eve.
