January is usually the month when things calm down after the mad rush of the holidays. The cold provides an excuse to stay home and enjoy some peace and quiet. This January has been a bit different. I've been taking an intensive class for the other job, learning how to analyze heart rhythms. It's not something I'm particularly interested in but with the changes in health care come changes in my job description that are beyond my control. So I have been rather consumed with atria and ventricles, thread and fabric have taken a backseat. Two more weeks. (Deep cleansing breath) Wish me luck!
I did manage to sneak in some crafting when I should have been studying.
This is a postage stamp quilt that I made for my cousin Peter who was retiring after working for the same company for more than 50 years! It is quilted with a pattern called Waterworld. The fabric is Salt Water by Tula Pink.
I also celebrated a birthday! Somehow they are not as exciting as they used to be, but I did receive these beautiful flowers which survived being shipped through the polar vortex.
This quilt was a quick project using a layer cake. It's going to live with a friend who shall remain nameless but she did me a big favor the other day and I am so grateful! Someone snuck into the photo shoot, but she looked cute so I left her alone.
It was quilted with a pattern called Glacee, it came out really pretty.
I knitted this cute hat which Heidi graciously modeled for me. I love pink in the winter!
I call this 'Ode to Radiant Orchid'. I don't know what's going to become of this. Stay tuned...
