January is a funny month. We have made and maybe broken our New Year's Resolutions, it has been really cold, it has been rainy and snowy and sometimes pretty warm and sunny.
It is a great month to spend stitching with friends. It is a wonderful month for hot spicy soup and nights with warmth from a fireplace and maybe hot chocolate.
We have been sewing a lot of new things and some of us are finishing projects that we started some time ago.
These pictures will be a variety of projects done in several different classes.
