January Roundup - Completions and WIPs

January is almost over. That means only 2 more months until maternity leave ends and I go back to work. The countdown has begun.
Januar er nesten forbi - 2 måneder igjen til mammaperm er over og jeg begynner i arbeid igjen. Nedtellingen har begynt.

I set 3 main goals for this month and am happy to have acchieved them all. These were mostly catch-up projects, so I am looking forward to starting some new projects soon!
Jeg hadde 3 hovedmål for måneden og er fornøyd med å ha fullført alle - mesteparten var saker jeg skulle hatt ferdig før jul...

1) COMPLETE: Finish quilt for baby nephew - done!
Fullført - quilt til min lille nevø

2) WIP: Finish blocks for California Cherry Blossom quilt - done! This is a craptastic photo of the layout - there will be sashing with coral cornerstones and I think I'll use coral binding to pull it all together.
Under arbeid - har blitt ferdig med alle blokkene til dette teppet (hurra!)

3) WIP: Get up to date on 2012 Mystery BOM from Fat Quarter Shop - October, November, December and January's blocks are d.o.n.e.
Under arbeid - blitt a jour med månedens blokk for oktober, november, desember og januar!

For bonuspoeng:

4) Assemble Cali Cherry Blossom quilt top - nope (well, I still have 2 days to work on this...)
Sy sammen toppen til Cali Cherry Blossom - niks (vel, har 2 kvelder igjen av måneden...)

5) Get started on Lucky Stars BOM - YES!
I will make 2 mini quilts - one for me (using Chicopee scraps) and one as a gift (using teal/aqua/green/blue). Very happy with how the first blocks came out!
Begynn på Lucky Start BOM - Yes! Har bestemt meg for å lage 2 miniquilter - ett til meg selv og ett som en gave. Fornøyd med første månedens blokker!
