A brand new beautiful year!

Winter 2013 022

Isn’t a fresh brand new year so glorious and full of possibilities?

The Christmas is put away and the house is a blank,  glitter and pine free canvas!

The holidays around here were packed with family, fun, and excitement.  I hope you all enjoyed your holidays as well!

I had a tragic computer accident with my netbook,  which is what I use to post with these days.  I dropped the poor thing on the front porch floor.  She is in the shop being repaired as we speak, and I can’t wait to get her back.

So needless to say my posting over the holidays was non existent as my desktop is down in the gloomy basement man cave, and I try to stay away from there if I can.

My Christmas present this year has kept me occupied too.  I finally joined the rest of the world and received my first ever big girl smart phone!!

It seems to be a trend for me in January to dig out a project that I’ve long wanted to make.  The sewing room is clean and tidy, there are no more gifts to produce and my project list is empty and ready to be filled.

I poured through my books and found a quilt I thought would be a snap to make.  I purchased the book and the fabric in 2006 while I was working at Quilt N Go.  I figured it was high time I whipped this up.

I underestimated the time the applique blocks would take but I only have one block left and it will be ready for borders.

One last bit of exciting news to share today.

A major dream of mine has been realized friends!   I have a quilt pattern that will be in Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine’s Spring 2013 issue!!!!!!!!!!
