Happy New Year

Wow, how did it get to be the 5th of January already! Today was back to work and school. I could have easily ignored the alarm and stayed in bed. Oh well, need to pay for the fabric some way.

I haven't gotten much sewing done yet this year. We have already had 2 family birthdays this year, New Year's Day, and a quick trip to Boston. The DH got tickets to the Boston Celtics for Christmas. A great reason to spend the weekend in the city! I brought the camera but....no one picture. Whoops, never got the camera out of the hotel room. We had a great time despite the cold, whipping wind. It is always a great get away.

Since I haven't gotten any other projects I thought I would post a few pictures of things I got done this past fall. This is a Lakehouse Fabrics pattern by Holly Holderman. This was in McCall's Quilting magazine - February 2008. I just LOVE the pink and black together. This has wall hanging has prompted a quilting room redo. The redo is "in progress" just like the quilt, some things never change.

Here is a little fabric basket that I made with a tutorial found on the Pink Penguin blog; http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2008/05/tutorial-fabric-basket.html

I just love the results. I have had a thing with red and turquoise lately and the addition of the rick rack just makes me smile.

The directions were very clear and easy to follow. I was able to get this done in one Sunday afternoon!

Thank you Ayumills!

Oooh, your little basket is sooo pretty! I hope your return to work week goes well -- I was finding it a little hard to stay awake in my meetings today LOL!

What a great basket! I saved her tutorial to my desktop a couple of weeks ago, and plan to make one soon!
