January in Review

It seems shocking that the first month of 2014 is already over! January flew by!

January had it's ups and downs. The weather was mostly bleak, but with shining moments of bright sun and snow. I feel like I was sick almost every day this month so I stayed inside at home for most of it, some days not even being able to get out of bed. Despite that, I managed to have my first finish of 2014 done on the 6th. I was also able to complete 2 quilt tops, and 2 quilt bottoms, baste them, and start the quilting on one. 

We were able to get out and see some great art at both the New Museum and the MOMA. Seeing more art and culture (for lack of a better word) is a huge priority for 2014. It feels like we are off to a great start. We were very lucky that my dad was able to join us on one of our museum jaunts. But besides that, January saw a sad lack of seeing family and friends. Hopefully February will change that trend. 

I've been extremely grateful for the continued interest in my work via this blog and instagram. Please feel free to always comment and like, follow, or contact me!

1) This month started off bright and cold. 2) We did only a little shopping and exploring during the first month. I left this vintage beaded dress behind, but took some photos with me. 3) We saw so much great art, mostly modern! 4) Lots of snow made for great light, but bitter mornings.

1) Working on a huge all gingham quilt took up much of Jan. Bippi helped! 2) A serious watcher on my way to work. This pic was even featured on South Slope News. 3) Doing laundry on a cold wet January day kinda sucks. But seeing this watcher helped. 4) The whole family spent a lot of time cuddled under blankets and quilts.

1) Working in DUMBO has the advantage of letting me see some great views. January saw some extreme fog, wild rain and snow, and great clouds 2) Quilts are stacking up to be completed. 3) Pit might have been less than thrilled with all the gingham. 4) An unexpected dragon.

Well, January, it seemed short and not altogether sweet but we made it through! Let's see what February holds...
