January’s Finishes

This year I have once again joined Peg and Kris in One Project A Month.  It is the best thing to keep me stitching.

My January finishes have been my projects for Chooky’s Stitch-a-Long.

I shared my first thread catcher previously, but had to make a second.  The light weight pelon is definitely better for the size shown on the pattern.  When I saw these fabrics I thought they would work well together.  I’m really happy with how it turned out.

I was happy that the shoe bag was on the project list.  I made two of these as Christmas gifts in 2011 and shared here and here.  At the time I stated that I should also make one for me, but it hadn’t happened.  Now I have one of my own.  On all of them I cheated by just putting a single fabric around the top, instead of the patchwork strip.

So, here is my little collection.

I’ve made a small start on February’s project.  As you can see, I’ve decided to use blue for the colour.  It will be fun making the bag from fabrics in my stash.
