Do you remember that I said I needed to come up with one more color for the block quilt--
well--I kinda had a color in mind--
I did it---
I did one in black and white!!!!
I love this block the same as the other 11 colors--
now to decide how I want to finish off these blocks into a quilt top!!!!
and yes--I even gots of practice in 'froggin'!!!

I can also mark off one of the five projects on my 'to do' list for January!!
This block is now finished--
and let me tell you --
there was alot of stitching on this one!!!
Then some confusion set in--
could only find 3 other blocks--
was sure this one was block #5!!!
after looking and looking-- I went to bed--
and then a thought hit me--and yes--I have a 'bruise'!!!!!
and looky what I found--
It was #5--but--
It meant that 6 blocks out of 12 are done--yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and the next block is already traced--
so we are on a roll--

And and I worked on the hand quilted project every day--
and have done alot more on the wool project--
the only project that I haven't touched yet--
is the counted cross stitch one--but do hope to work on that one this week end!!!

And now for the January Challenge--
I am not taking names--
if you do the challenge for the month--
send me an email and tell me to see you blog post with the finished 'wip' or wips in it
then I will add your name to that month that you did the challenge!!
how does this sound????
and as a hint for Feb--challenge--start collecting 'green' fabric--
you know the real shade of green!!!

I am actually going to go to a knitting session this afternoon--
have fun and joy in what ever you are doing!
hugs, di and miss gracie
