Mini Christmas stockings, and WHIJD??

I've completed seven of these little patchwork stockings now that I've got my sewing machine back, and they will be in the mail to Jan on Monday.

WHIJD?? What Have I Just Done? Signed my life away, that's what! Well, a proportion of my time next year anyway. In the past couple of years I have been admiring group projects of all kinds online, where people make a block per month and post the pictures to a central blog. When I saw the write up for next year's Crazy Quilt Journal Project, I knew I wanted to be in it. I've already got ideas buzzing around in my brain, and am looking forward to creating 12 blocks, and maybe making them into some kind of quilt at the end of the year, depending on how many blocks I achieve, what they look like, and whether I can find someone who is willing to assist me with the end product (are you reading this Connie?)!
