Happy New Year

Another year is done. Wow. Where does the time go?! This has been a very topsy turvy year, but I wouldn't trade it. We learn as much from the mistakes as we do the successes.

What about the new year? Well I'm looking forward to learning more about this wonderful craft I am addicted to. I've always loved most crafts and I do still crochet and I haven't totally ruled out picking up some needlework, but quilting is my first crafting love.

I'm also going to explore my faith in more depth. I've gotten away from it some and it's time to go back.

Last but not least I'm looking forward to learning more about my 'new' family, or should I say newly found, and building relationships.

I found the camera! Unfortunatly the batteries are dead. sigh But, I have found some pictures I took and downloaded to the computer so here are a few things I worked on this year.

Tonight we will have a quiet night at home away from the crazy drivers and just enjoy our immediate family. We're going to watch a movie, throw some pizza in the oven and relax.

Hoping everyone a safe and Happy New Year!

Happy Quilting!

Are YOU ready for Christmas?

I don't know about everyone else, but the scramble is on! I'm making gifts for the new found family because buying them would be CRAZY! Each family is getting a table runner and some home baked goodies. I have the table runners planned and some are semi-cut. Good thing I've still got a few days. It helps ALOT that I am currently tele-commuting - no being stuck in traffic! Sure beats living in Indianapolis and spending a minimum of 2 hours a day in the car. See? I've got an extra 10 hours a week now to get it all done.

I've got planned table runners using Bonnie Hunters maverick star instructions. I'm just changing out the fabric for each family. Keeps it simple. If I ever find that dang camera....

Happy quilting!
