I was so excited to see all of the the One Little Word quilts at the BMQG meeting this afternoon!  Everyone did a great job and I love seeing how all of the mini quilts were so different from one another!  No one had the same word, either.  I didn't bring my camera, but hopefully Heather and/or Dawn will post some pictures soon.

Here's mine:

Journey Wall Hanging

I am in love with how it came out.  I love the wonky stars, I love the paper-piece letters, and I especially love the new (to me) FMQing.  LOVE.  I am hoping to partake in a bit of Leah Day's FMQ Project this year.

We also started a Round Robin Quilt this month.  Here is my center block, which has been passed on to the first participant to add a 2-inch border.  I won't see this fella again until June, and I'm so excited to see what he turns into!

I was also able to finish up my socks over New Years...they're a bit tight now that they've been washed, but I love them nonetheless.  Not bad for a first effort, eh?

First Socks

I signed up to take a toe-up sock class at The Knitter's Nest and we had our first class yesterday.  I chose to work with this yarn for this project:

Can you say, LOVE?????  I am so excited about these socks I can hardly contain myself!  They are made with Judy's Magic cast on and the Magic Loop technique...MAGIC MAGIC socks!  I have the toe done for one and am working my way up the foot right now.  I already like this technique better than top-down.  I will share pictures of my progress soon.


  1. That was fun! Love seeing your socks, too!

  2. Love your mini-quilt! And you've just reminded me to dig out the needles again. I started a cardigan in August, and poor thing has been sitting in the ever-growing UFO pile.
