OK--there it is. If Judy picks #11 or 12, I'll start on my #1 or 2 and see how that goes. I'm excited and terrified at the same time!!
Happy New Year, all! And Happy Sewing, always...........

and dinner with Jim's family.
The best part was having ALL this family around us all day and sharing it with our DS and DIL, home for 2 weeks from South Korea.

Did some de-stressify sewing on Saturday. You know, what you do to keep from thinking about all the stuff you have to do--but can't do YET??? !! This was the end result:
Very pleased with the new pillow--and it kept me occupied just right! It's 16" square and the little finished squares are 1" each...the back's an envelope and the patches are just raw edge appliqued on for some color on the reverse.
Hope all who stop by this blog are nearing their finish lines for Christmas and looking forward to a happy, healthy time with family and friends. Happy Sewing all !! :-)

Not much sewing going on, except these 2 pillows...they are gifts and this is the back of them, of course.
More going on in the kitchen for gift giving...
Here's the sweet wool ornaments, handmade by Maggie, that I received at the guild's ornament exchange!
Our DD made the lovely Christmas log cabin tablerunner a few years ago!! (She's got the Q-gene, I think!)
Enjoy the season...... :-)

http://attic24.typepad.com/ there are some wonderful ideas and tutorials for baubles and ornaments. After gathering my cotton yarns, I've attempted her Bauble Decoration for possible gift giving this year.... The directions and pictures are great and it went so well, I purchased the little bells to embellish the 'star' points when I get them done!
Finish No. 2 is the brand new GARAGE!! Yea! It seems bigger (cause all the 'stuff' hasn't been returned) And we won't have to scrape our windshields in the morning when the really bad weather turns up!
Here's to 'starts and finishes'--hope you all have some of each going yourselves!
