2014 New FO Challenge

I have just come across I would love to join this.
In January I will start the Craftsy block of the month from 2012.
In February I will start the Craftsy block of the month from 2013.
I had better stop there for now as there are a couple of other things I need to make but I'm not sure of their names.
If I can add the link I will.
Here is a picture of my treadle which I hope to use for some of my projects.

Christmas QAL

Well, abject failure to finish the challenge, I have a long way to go.  Next time machine sewing, not hand sewing.
Oops, sorry.
That should have been the photo I rotated.

I did manage to get the binding sewn onto the boys quilts, now to hand sew it to the back.
I hope to sit and hand sew in the evenings, I have to admit the corners leave a lot to be desired.

My distraction this weekend has been two ladies, who have come to live at my house.
This is Alice, a 1951 221K centennial girl, she has some wear and tear but she is in better shape than me for her age. It did not take long to clean out the thread caught underneath.

This is Ivy a 1957, 221k  lady, she is in much better condition but oh the mess of threads underneath. 
They are both sewing beautifully now.
Hopefully after tea I can check out the other Christmas QAL blogs.
Happy sewing
