Busy January

It was a busy month, particularly weatherwise. We had lots of cold days when staying in was cozy. Then we had three days of the ice storm when I could not step out of my house. I could get into my car in the garage and drive up the driveway to the mailbox but could not put a foot down on the slick ice. It was a strange feeling to be so cut off; luckily, email, Internet, TV and phone service made life go on without much interruption. But it did give me reason to think of women a century ago who had no such conveniences!
I finished two children's quilts out of some 6" squares I've had for quite some time. They were pre-cut (pinking shear edges) and I have no idea where they came from. I call these "picnic" squares because they look like tablecloth fabric.
Picnic 1, offset squares, quilted (being checked out by kittens)

Picnic 2, top only
I made three walker totes (keeping up my commitment) and then enjoyed making three more Color Bar pieces.

No progress on the reorganizing of the fabric. Maybe February will be more conducive to rearranging and folding fabric.
