January's Challenge Finished

When I set myself some personal challenges on Boxing Day last year they were on the condition that I put myself under no pressure.  If I didn't achieve my monthly goals then that would be fine but at least I would have tried.  The challenges were to be used as relaxation time in my down time from study.  So I set about my tasks for January with the freedom in the knowledge that nothing was written in stone.

Somehow this has ignited my mojo.  I joked to friends that I must have been given a MOJO for Christmas because it has arrived in full force.  The challenge to finish Chick Jubilee was set on the 5th January and I finished the quilt front on the 10th.  I can't believe it only took 5 days to get my first major finish for the year.  I am very pleased with myself !

And here she is all finished.  I just love this quilt.  

It's been bundled off now and is with the quilter to work her magic and then back home for binding and labeling.

One other stitch a long I am doing this year is Jenny's - Vintage Kitchen Stitcheries.  She releases 1 FREE stitchery per month which then becomes a wall hanging.  I am changing mine just a little bit and am using TILDA fabrics as well as an adorable Valdani Thread.  

I am pleased to say that I am currently up to date with this one too and looking forward to the next block.

I hope you have been able to find your Mojo too.
