A few times a year, I pick a month to dedicate to finishing projects. The main objective is to cross things off my list whether they are brand new projects or projects that have been lingering for months (or even years!) Sometimes, all it takes to finish something is sewing on buttons. For larger projects, like quilts, finishing a block or a stage of the project is considered a ‘finish’ to me.
January seemed like the perfect time to start a finishing campaign. I also took a week off work towards the end of the month to just stay home, relax and sew. Heaven! I had ten solid finishes in January, ranging from a quilt top to a duffle bag to a knit cowl that I started over two years ago. Here are a few sneak peeks!

Good for you, there is something so satisfying about finishing anything. Those sneaky picks look good. Especially the bag.
Well done indeed! All those lovely things look just fab. I want to make a Portfolio tunic and love your choice of fabric. Very impressive! Jen
I also take a ton of days off in January, and isn’t it magnificent how much you can get done when you don’t have a 9-6?!

I’ve missed your makes over the last few weeks, I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing what you’ve made. Looking forward to seeing what you’ve been sewing, you always inspire me!
Oh I love it when you do a finish month. Totally in awe. Can’t wait to hear more details about the dress, as I have that pattern and have been wondering how the tana lawn would wear (dreamy I assume!) as opposed to the heavier knits/wools etc that the pattern sleeve suggests. Would be way more into some Liberty, natch. Love seeing the knitting too! Eeee.
Love your cowl…which pattern and wool is this!! Gorgeous!!
