Wishing All A Brighter New Year & World Peace

Another year has come and gone. I feel so lucky to be seeing a New Year I just wish for a few more brighter times in the coming year. I have lost a few young friends this year so I really do feel lucky and I'm thankful I'm ringing in another year no matter what.

Happy New Year to All!!!!

Lets talk Quilts, Quilting & Hobbies

 So happy to report I have NO ufo projects or Quilts lingering.  
This is a quilt I made from my scrap pile awhile back. A Simple "Yellow Brick Road" pattern. To quilt it I floated this one instead of pinning it to my rack, I've never done it this way before as I've always pinned. I will try this again on my own quilts a few more times before doing customer quilts this way.

This is a new Panto I recently added to my collection, "One Cloudy Day" by
Timeless Quilting Designs. I used Omni Thread by Superior getting perfect tension, used DK Pink on top and Off White on the Muslin back. Oh how I love my machine. As always just click on the Picture for a better look.

I've also been making Sausage Pillowcases and I'm trying to learn how to use my embroidery machine, if for nothing else but to make my quilt labels. I'm making progress as I've graduated to Hand Towels which I've found fun to do.

One of my intensions for 2012 is to make embroidery sewing machine covers for all of my sewing machines. I have lots of machines too...maybe...ghee yes my next post will be about all my sewing machines...few sit idle as they all have a purpose.
Until next year...thanks for stopping by.
