January/February

After a swift kick email from Chooky I have got my act together and caught up. I actually am enjoying this process and dont think my needleturn is coming out too bad considering Im a first timer, and it was so much easier this time round with all the strips and squares cut and the two patch and four patches already made. So here we have January and February joined with the December strip as well as the bottom strip waiting to be joined.
