The entrance to my basement doesn't get used very often - it's unusual to have it shoveled out. I cringe if I have to go through here - spiders and cobwebs take over from lack of use. This week I had a flood in my basement so I had to sweep out the cobwebs for the guy who grinds roots out of sewer lines. Actually I swept it out a few days earlier when I purchased a new washing machine -- thinking my old one had caused the flood. Next week has to be better.

Here are my completed quilting goals for January - I managed to finish all of them. Wouldn't it be nice if the rest of 2013 would be that productive.
I finished quilting the blue quilt in the middle - and got all three bound. The two on the right are waiting to see if the February grandbaby will be a boy or a girl.
I even managed to get started on what may be a QOV.
Even more fun than meeting my goals was the opportunity to take a weaving class at the Calumet Art Center. It's always fun to learn a new craft. Many years ago my dad made a table loom and it's been sitting in my attic waiting for me to retire.
It may sit there a bit longer. Apparently it went to the attic via the old stairway that has since been made into a closet. It's a bit too wide to fit through my newer drop down stairway.
Fortunately I was able to rent a loom at the art center to work with. Here's what I have done so far - what a fun way to use up some of my quilting scraps!
My goals for February:
- Finish my weaving project.
- Baste and quilt low value log cabin quilt
- Baste and quilt one more baby quilt.
- Baste one more quilt top - not sure yet which one I'll pick.
I think its doable!
