WIP-it Wednesday, and a finish...

...and whoa, it's Wednesday already!

I was planning on posting yesterday, but the day ended before I could get to it.

Over the weekend I actually finished two projects. On Saturday, the last day of January, I finished the Walking on the Sun handspun [Ravelry].

Started 1/10/2015;
Finished 1/31/2015;
Sea Monster top (4 oz) from Dragonfly Fibers;
204.7 yds chain-ply, 13 WPI

I tried very hard to finish the quilt on Saturday, but it didn't happen. I finished I'm Just Mad About Citron quilt on Sunday, the first day of February...oh, well! No photos yet because I need to find a location with good lighting to get some decent pictures.

I'm making slow progress on Be My Baby and I actually worked on a cross stitch piece!  With Stitches West coming up in a couple of weeks and Loopy Academy starting up again, it would be good to make progress on my existing projects before I start something new!
