When you have a cold your day goes slowly, well mine has pretty much slowed to a halt today.

Yesterday even though I knew I was coming down with a cold but I was feeling well enough to sew most of the day.
It was too cold to go out and help with feeding the cattle and by the way we had 8 calves born this week. Pretty Red cows was not one of them thou.
One of the heifers here had a calf today but I get a picture when I feel better.

I am reposting this at Elm Street Quilts to show my January finish. Thi quilt is at the quilter right now and wish I had it back to finish the binding.

Finished the Vintage Christmas Quilt.
This is my January OMG

The pattern was well written and easy to follow.

It shows when you have so many pieces to sew together and it measures out right when attaching a multi blocks to a solid piece.

And I have to say partly to that I found my 1/4" and was pretty consistent. But instructions are great. 

Yesterday I figured a pot of Chicken soup would fix me but unfortunately not quite work. Today I have had the energy of a slug. But I had leftover soup so didn't have to make dinner.

I did have a spurt of energy this afternoon long enough to try the cutter I received for Christmas. 

Decided to cut the 2.5" strips need to make this months RSC17

Some of the purple I collected

I love it, made all this success in less than 2 hours.  That's collect, press and cut.
