happy new year~

mom and I hope you have a safe and happy New Year’s.

we are busy getting our spring and summer quilt shows finalized, so if you can’t get to the shop be sure to check out our events page and maybe you can stop by and see us at a quilt show.

as for new projects in the New Year…we have some fabulous ideas and even a summery themed Quilt Along that will start in February sometime…but more on that.

our Countryside Quilt Along started yesterday…we hope you can take part in it.  the project is perfect for using up all those orphaned 5 inch squares or round up some charm packs or layer cakes.

as for resolutions in the New Year…I am going to try to be healthier and spend more time doing the things I love and less time worrying about things I cannot change.  (I am also going to finish my Lucy Boston by the Minot Quilt Show.   I already have 3 rows of blocks sewn together, so I’ve sewn 21 of 56 blocks.)

I’m also going to try and do more on pinterest…even though it is like a vortex and when I get sucked in I am there for hours…there are so many ideas and inspiration and wonderfulness that I don’t want to miss out on anything.  maybe i’ll even try and whittle down my boards–or maybe not.

i’ll leave you with a picture from the first post of 2014…on January 4th…we finished up the Sylvia blocks and I posted pictures.  Sylvia is still bagged and waiting to be sewn together.  Did anyone join us when we worked on these…did you finish or is she still waiting?  maybe we can get her finished up in 2015 too…wouldn’t she be a sight?  all those lovely florals on a bleached muslin.

we are closing early today…3pm.  we hope you have safe and happy new year.  i’ll see you in 2015~
