January Finish ~ in the nick of time!

A Lovely Year of FinishesIt is a good thing I challenged myself to participate in  "A lovely year of finishes" otherwise I would have just further procrastinated completing Henry's baby blanket. As it is, I'm done only a few hours away from the linky party closing - ack!

I still have a few hours to link up tho, and 8 more weeks til this baby boy arrives, so I'll take that as a success :)

Without further ado, my January project - Henry's quilt for use when he is in his carseat. Fun log cabin on the front, soft warm minky on the back. I love it... and want one big enough for myself. I don't think 28 x 28 would cover much of me but it will be perfect for him :)

We'll see if I can muster up the energy to first find a project for February (I have tons of UFOs somewhere but digging them out is the issue!) and then finish it! I may end up sitting out the next few months ... we shall see.

Thanks for the motivation Shanna! I love this yearly initiative and seeing what everyone else has made.

A lovely year of finishes - January goal

I saw that "A lovely year of finishes" is beginning again on Flikr and figured hey ... maybe this will motivate my sleepy pregnant butt to get something done this year!

Sooooooo ........ without further ado, here is my January goal:

A carseat quilt for Henry ~ my son who will be born at the end of March (12 more freaking weeks... I may not make it that long! lol)

I wanted to make him a cute travel blanket for his carseat and these are the colors I chose for him. Green is my favorite color, blue is my husband's favorite color ... and well, orange looks good with almost anything in my opinion ;-) This top is 30 x 30, the perfect car seat size I think without too much hangover on the sides.

I just need to get some minky for the bank and finish this beauty but as simple as that may sound, all I want to do is sleep after work so it will definitely take some effort for me to finish on time! Keep your fingers crossed for me... 23 more days left this month!
