DWM: January summary and February beginnings

Ta-da! Here is Dancing Nines, made from this Bonnie Hunter pattern.  The border is an imitation woodblock print that I've had for many years.   3-1/2 yards used.

Stash report, January:
fabric in:  4 yards, $15.50
fabric out: 18-5/8 yards
net reduction: 14-5/8 yards

Considering that I was out of town, not sewing, for nine days this month I accomplished a lot in January:
*  three flimsies finished
*  two flimsies created
*  four flimsies sold






Here are nine 6.5" (unfin) Snail's Trail blocks for the February Block Lotto.  I've wanted to make these blocks and thanks to Sophie's precise cutting instructions they went together easily.
