February's done!

Well, I guess that one of the perks of not being able to sleep at night could be to make the final stitches on the February blocks at about 2AM last night/this morning. 

And that with 8 days to go! Not bad. I wonder if I'll be able to keep up for the next months too. 

February's all done!
I have to confess, I have started to prepare the blocks for March - only cutting and drawing so far, but still, it's a start.

Here in Oslo it's a beautiful day, blue skies, sunny and about 10 Celsius outside (or, 15, as the thermostat suggests, but with the sun shining directly on it I think it's a bit off).

Have a nice weekend, everybody!

I think that my project will be mostly scraps and odds and ends from previous projects. So far, I'm very happy (except with my appliqué, some of those corners and circles are truly wonky - but then again, isn't that in the spirit of Anni?).
