Link up day is the 2nd, which is today (actually it's yesterday already down under where Lynn resides). The something old is UFOs or WIPs that haven't been worked on in a while; the something new for Lynn is learning a new skill. I'm using the something new as permission to start a new project.
For January, my something old was to finish binding and labeling Mon Ami. Done!

It's been rather gloomy since Friday, so I've not had a chance to get a good photo. This is my 2013 quilt of valor, so I'm just a month late getting it done.
The something new for January was to make an Inverted Star block for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Done!

All those half square triangles didn't want to match up real well. Hopefully my February version will go together a bit easier.
For February, the something old is to get Jigsaw to the finished flimsy stage.

Drama Teen asked for this quilt a couple of years ago. I made great gains on it last year, but then got caught up in Celtic Solstice and haven't made any progress on it since.
My something new is to pull out the Tonga Atlantis kit I picked up on vacation in Montana and get it started. It will be my NewFO for February.
I've never made a quilt from a kit, so that is something new for me as well. We'll see how well this works out.
February is a short month, plus I already know Drama Teen has two volleyball tournaments this month. That will be two weekends with limited stitching opportunities. Wish me luck, I'll need it to get both of these things done.
