DuRinG the HoLiDaYs

I decided on my MaNTRa for 2021 & it's...
Doing It For The Kids...
I hope to make child friendly quilts for either the local hospital OR the various community Charites, Refuges or Organisations that need a helping hand.
I've already started working on one this month... 
& you'll see it below...

In my stitching cubbyhole...
I only grabbed small amounts of time - here & there -  
BuT I did manage to get a few things ✅ on my list...

In December I volunteered to make a charity quilt from a donated kit.
It's called My Garden by Homestead Selection & it definitely has a country feel.
I made a start & block #1 was quickly finished... 
On another day... block #2 was prepared & then blanket stitched...
During an afternoon visit...   the appliqué on block #3 was fused in place...

I was excited last Tuesday when I won a prize in the Guild raffle... yippee...
Four gorgeous "dotty" fabric lengths... so I'm over the moon...😁
* * * * *

I also managed to put together another 3 rows of TriDazzle too...
I'm really happy with how it looks so far...

THeN... last night at FNwF... I worked on Snuggle Bears
It's my first 2021 project for "Doing It For The Kids" & it's also my WOOFA project.
I hope you enjoyed stitching along with me if you made it over to my place...
IF NoT... then enjoy the break & I'll see you next month... on Friday, Feb 5th.

Nice blocks. I twice won the Fat Quarter Shop prize from Patty at One Monthly Goal. It cost $13 US to ship my free stuff to Canada. I don't think I have used any of the things I bought either time, yet. One of these days. I did my FNWF stitching last night which was our Thurs night.

Kid's quilts are fun to make, so I'm sure you will enjoy "doing it for the kids"! The bears are a very cute start.

What a wonderful aim for the year.
And you may have only had little bits of time sewing but I still think you have achieved a lot.
Your projects are looking great.
