A Lovely Year of Finishes [February Goal]

I am feeling totally out of this week - life is pretty hectic, but not necessarily in a bad way! We're preparing to move houses, so there is a lot to do - trips to the tip, to the charity shop, to the mortgage advisor... calls for insurance, solicitors, removal company, builder... I don't understand how people can do this every few years - I am never moving again!

It's also been hectic because I've had dinner out a number of times this week - I'm not confessing to how many. lets just say that once we're moved and settled the next thing up is a diet! I briefly tried whilst juggling the move and regular life and it just didn't work, but I've been pinning some appealing recipes in anticipation.

But the downside to all of this is I've had very little sewing time. Where I have had a couple of hours I've been had sewing so there has been very little progress. I have no lunch dates for the rest of the week, so hopefully can spend some time relaxing. And of course with this hectic week I've nearly forgotten to share my February goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. I've just realised with 9 hours to go. I've had a look down my Finish Along list and picked out Trellis as my goal for February.

This is a baby quilt I've made for colleagues of my Husband. I pieced it back in October, but only got to baste it this week - I picked up one of the prints from the front in the sale to back it so it was worth the wait.

I'm thinking of a stipple in the white areas and then some ditch quilting around the focal prints. If I get some free time to tackle - February doesn't seem to be slowing down much.

Oh, that is so cute, Jennie! I'm finishing up a baby quilt too so hopefully I'll remember to post before the end of February! LOL

I think moving house is supposed to be one of the most stressful times of your life - death and divorce are up there with it! After a lifetime of moving I have now been in the same house for nearly 20 years which has been lovely but I know we shall not be there for ever. Hope you have time to get the quilt finished. xx

It would be fantastic if you could do any sewing while moving! I wouldn't be able to do so! I would just wait till I was settled in my new home. Love the quilt and the bird fabric.
