Table Topper

Shiloh inspects my finished table topper.  I absolutely love the rusty Indian print fabric and I am very pleased with the quilting design.  I am not sure you can see it in the photo.  Circles in the center and radiating hexagons in the outer ring.

Messenger Bag

A friend asked for a messenger bag, red & black.  I saw this fabric and thought it was perfect.  I imagined the monogram immediately - raw edge applique.  I love it!  It is smaller than I thought the pattern would end up.  I hope she likes it, but I could easily make a bigger one, if need be.

Wolf Quilt

Finally got the borders and corner stones on this.  Now to baste and quilt.  Have to get this finished by March for the Mapaw Siberian Husky Rescue's Beef & Beer.

Someone actually wanted to pay me for a bag!  Happy to oblige.  Love the fresh green and oranges.

Happy New Year

I always think of a New Year like an Empty Canvas.  It's an opportunity to start fresh.  I know, it sounds cliche, but I really do get this feeling from the holiday.

I should have made a list...a list of the things I wanted to do after the hub-bub of the holidays were over.  For the life of me, I cannot remember what they are!  Oh, well, something else is sure to come along, or if it was important, it will come back to me.  But this time...I'll remember to make a list.

I received some very cool crafting and quilting books for Christmas and a snazzy new chair for my craft room.  After the great re-organization project, I am now eager to get going on some really juicy projects.  I have a quilt to design and make for a wedding later in the year - never too early to start on that.  And I found this really cool Dr. Who fabric I am just itching to make something out of for one of my friends.  I have a table topper to quilt, and I found a few new small organizer type patterns I'd like to try out.

So, here's to the New Year!  May it bring us all crafty happiness!
