OK, well I know I'm slack but I've opted to not take up on the January challenge for two reasons:
1) i only found out about it a couple of days before the end of the month,
2) i don't really need or want anything
So instead i made a dress and headband for my 2 yr old.
I haven't gathered before, so that was a challenge. I didn't get it perfect but its not too shabby.
I cheated and made it tie up so i didn't have to do button holes, but thats next on my list of things to try!
