January 2015

Hi there! Happy New Year!  Did you have a wonderful holiday season?  Everyone here is back on their regular schedules, I'll miss having my people around that's for sure. Bret had some extra days off over the last two weeks and it's been a treat.

New Year
With the start of the new year I  put in a fresh rotary blade, broke open a box of new pins and put in a fresh new needle.  Why I wait so long on the blade I have no idea. Same with the pins, I barely had a straight pin in the bunch.  Well that's just the kind of nut I am.
I wanted to make something that I didn't plan out myself, so I pulled out my Fat Quarter Style book and cut myself a pack of fat quarters for the Tapestry Quilt. Even though we had a busy few days I managed to get the lap size version completed last night!   Of course you'll have to take my word for it, I took some really crappy photos and it's already packed up to take to be quilted.  I need to find a way to get a nice picture of a larger sized quilt.  That's one thing I really miss in  a lot of books and patterns these days, nice flat shots of the quilts. I like seeing details like quilting patterns and fabric layouts!  But I also enjoy the styled shots.  There's always new trends, wonder what will be next?
Ok, tell me what you're up to this fine January morning!  I'm taking my projects off to be quilted, can't wait! I'm also sending off some bloggy birthday wishes to my mother-in-law Doris!!! I hit the mother-in-law jackpot with her!  Ok, lets have a good day people! xo

I'm back to work at school today. I'm hoping to have time to start quilting my quilt I finished.

I cleaned, vacuumed and mopped today trying to get rid of the last signs of Christmas, all the while wishing I was sewing instead. Glad I didn't see your sweet little stack of fabric first or I would have been digging out some of my prized PKM fabric and starting a project. Looking forward to seeing those quilts when they get back from the quilter. Happy New Year, Pam.

I can't believe I just discovered your
website today. I have been researching Cosmo threads all week since that is what so many of my new This & That patterns recommend. I guess I have to order them on-line.
Now I see you are offering a give-away of Cosmo packs!!!
The threads sound so delicious to work with and I hope to be a winner!
I definitely will be returning to your blog often! JoyceZ
