Finish it up February?

This is my birthday week and my fabulous hubby
gave me cash to spend any way I like.
So naturally I bought fabric.
But you KNOW I'm going to make
that money go as far as I can!!!
I was on ebay the other night
and on a whim I bid $24.99 on a jelly roll
of Cosmo Cricket "Circa 1934".
And quess what? I won!
So this beauty showed up on Saturday
and I could barely control myself to get started.
I'm making the sampler quilt on the cover of the book.
I have all the strips pressed and cut
and now it's time to get started piecing.
While I was cutting my lovely fabric
it occured to me that I have several quilt tops done
and I haven't even begun to finish them.
I need to get my butt in gear
and get them all finished.
I'm hoping to finish them all in February.
We'll see how that works out...ha!
I also started on a new cross stitch pattern
last night. I do love me some chickens!
This pattern is fun because the chickens are in front
of a row of quilts!
How perfect is that? 

Anyone else have projects to finish in February?????


  1. I spent my birthday money on fabric, too! I love the chickens...cant wait to see it finished with the quilts added!

  2. love me some circa 1934!!
    I have tons of projects to finish up....yours comes to mind!!

  3. Too many to count. I think I'll start with birthday gifts for my nieces! Hooray for two and three year olds!

  4. I have 2 baby quilts and a wedding quilt to start AND finish - but at least not all in February!

  5. Happy Birthday Karen! Looks like hubby nailed it on your present!
    And yes, I have far, far too many projects on the go, but am committed to working my way through them. Too bad my machine just went in for an emergency fix up.

  6. Happy birthday! What an awesome way to use your b-day bucks. :-) I am already behind on a birthday gift for a friend, so that is my foremost Feb goal! Have a happy week!

  7. Felicidades por tu cumpleaños y por esas fantásticas telas que son maravillosas.

    Un besazo

  8. I have lots of stuff to finish for Baby Bear who is due in March :-)! I am 'sew' excited.

  9. I don't have a finish planned, but I do need to get caught up on some quilt alongs!
