January Check In

How in the world did I lose a whole week??? It was pretty easy actually, I managed to get the crud....just when I was congratulating myself for not getting in while almost everyone around me succumbed. It eventually caught up to me and hit me like a ton of bricks, and basically wiped out a week....and I am still trying to catch up on all of the things that have to get done and should have gotten done....CRAZY TOWN!

So, just a few updates....I got the center of my Captain's Wheel finished, leaving just the joining of the border units (curves are all done, whew!), and then adding them to the quilt. I'm at the awkward layout stage where I need more space or less dog to make sure that the borders rotate correctly. Hopefully, the weekend will afford me the benefit of just such an adventure. I'll post on that once it is done. It will be this weekend, I promise!!!!

I had pretty big plans for this year, somehow they have morphed a bit, but I am generally okay with that since I was apparently both more and less efficient than I imagined....

The goals as stated at the new year....
