OMG Finishes

January Update/February Goals

So January for me was a bit of a wipe out really. I ended up having to make frequent visits for appointments, and then having a general Anaesthetic for some surgery-nothing major and the results were fine so no worries. I had thought I was having the surgery under local but the surgeon decided at the time a general anaesthetic would be best. it is years since I had had one and forgot how they can wipe you out. I had a planned week off work and thought I would gets a lot of sewing done, but it was lots of lying around doing very little.
It's all good now but because of my setback my January OMG finish didn't happen. I did get it to the stage where the pieces are ironed down and are ready to sew.

So for my February OMG project I plan to quilt and bind the flimsy below. Another of the Strippie Quilts that are quick to put together and make great baby quilts. I am too late for the link up but posting here will challenge me to finish it.
While in my time out zone, when there was not a lot of concentration happening I decided to sew up left over jelly roll pieces and make them into a cross quilt. Still a work in progress but will make a good cuddle, lap quilt for winter.
Happy Quilting and thanks for visiting.


  1. So pleased all is well Marlene and nothing major in your surgery. The general anaesthetics certainly do knock you for six don't they. I absolutely adore your elephant, in fact I wouldn't want to show it to Jack (son) as he has a things for elephants and haven't anymore spare time!!

  2. Glad you are on the mend! I love your plus blocks! Those are all batik with a gray background, right? I hope that is your March goal! I want to see it finished!
