January is about to say good bye ( oh my, I can't believe it!....), but I'm not late for the One Project a Month Challenge!
My wallhanging is finished :-)))))
I finished the quilting, sewed the binding and then I washed it.
Now it is hanging on the wall and I am happy!
The picture is not that good, it is the absence of light during the winter days ....

For February? Hmmm, I think I have to take a closer look at all the other projects I have around here. I admit I have quite some PIGS (Projects In Grocery Sacks), I sort the fabrics out and pack them with the pattern so it is ready to get started. Are you curious to know how many I have in my sewing room?! I have never counted them.... chuckle!!!!! It is always a good surprise to find something I bought a long while ago and realize, oh gosh, here is the fabric I was sure I still had a piece!!!

Ok, tomorrow is Friday, let's make the best of it and give our sewing machines a lot of care and attention!
Have a creative and wonderful weekend!
See you!

Hi Suzie,
Congratulations on the award. I love the quilt you finished for January and I also love the "pigs", such a great name for them!!

Barbara said...

Your little quilt is beautiful. I think I will try spending some time making something similar. Thank you for the inspiration. Also, back in Dec you showed a picture of a moose that you had made for your husband called Piet. Would you happen to remember what the name & designer of the pattern might be? I just love that moose. Thank you

Patsy said...

Great wall hanging. Congratulations on you awards.

Katherine said...

I burst out laughing when I read about your PIGS - too funny!

Love your project of the month. It's just lovely.

Eileen said...

I really like your Double Four Patch wall hanging. Someday I am going to make this pattern too.. I keep being drawn to it.
Thank you so much Suzie for the PRETTY award! I don't have this one, and will proudly display it on my sidebar. You are a dear.
And YES.. there are a lot of PIGS around here too. You are so funny!

I love the wall hanging and a perfect spot to put it with those lovely sewing machines. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Melanie said...

Hia Suzie, thank you very much for the award and congratulations for receiving them.

Well done for finishing your wall hanging. I hope you enjoy what you pick for February's project.

Christine said...

Thank you for the award, Suzie. Also congratulations for the ones you received yourself.
Your wallhanging looks terrific. I am rather envious of the sewing machines in the same picture. Lucky you.

I love the sewing machines and the quilt hanging above them is gorgeous!

Carole said...

Hi Suzie,
Hey, I'm back again, but not for long ! I'm dropping by now that I can (yes, still those big computer problems) and I'm green with envy seeing that you finished a wallhanging... but well, I did my best and I made some progress on various little things. Plus my sewing corner is now organised and tidy. Which is more motivating ! And the holidays are coming up soon. Well, these are reasons enough to stay positive !
I'll be back as soon as I can, take care !

Anne Ida said...

Oh, congratulations on finishing the wall hanging! It is absolutely wonderful!! You do such lovely work!

Love those little quilts you have on display with the sewing machines as well!

Hugs and stitches from me
