First Finishes for the One Project a Month Challenge!

This week I have finished lots of small projects left hanging from Christmas and earlier!!

First off the big ones: 4 red patchwork cushion covers...2 for my own sofa and 2 more requested by my MIL. I am going through my red stash pretty well, but there is still a ton left, though squares will have to be smaller!

Second: Coffee cozy revamp...needed to rip back the binding and cut down the cozies and add some fabric to make them actually cover the whole coffee press! Here is a photo of the second one I finally finished.

Third: I finished this stitchery years ago. I finally added fabric around the stitchery to frame it up in the 8 x 10 inch frame I bought. It looks like a card mat from a distance...will have to hang it in the girls room.

Fourth: This is a quilt that Aine designed. We did it last Christmas, so it is about time that it was finished.

Finally, Fifth: A whipped up a couple of customised onesies/baby vests for a friend of mine who had a baby last month and brought them over and oogled the baby :P!!

I also ripped back the second pink sock I needed to fix, will show the scary pile of yarn I ripped and subsequent slow progress fixing it on a later post. I am also slowly working on my felted bag...not much to show for that really... is the latest digital scrapbooking page I did, showing the girls week and some cute pics...
Week 1 scrapbook

A good productive week of finishes!! I don't think anything else I have ongoing will be finished this month, but plan on starting on some more of those double sided quilt blocks. Tutorial to follow soon!! I also have a wedding quilt to start and finish by July!! I like finishing stuff, maybe I'll start another small project just to finish some more!!

So many things you did! Did you use a tutorial or pattern for the coffee cozy or did you think that up by yourself?
I'd like to make one, too!

What is the purpose of covering your coffee cup? or is that coffee pot?
