Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2017!

Hope you are all well. This last half of the year has been a trying one with the exception of my sister's wedding.  We almost lost dad again in December. He is doing much better now though.  We celebrated the holidays with family at the nursing home.  My son is currently out of town with his girlfriend and her family.  Can't wait to have him home for a couple more weeks until school starts again.

This year I made my co-workers some crocheted dish cloths. I wanted a project that was portable for my dad's hospital stays and this fit the bill.  I can't seem to stop making them now so I might have to put them up on my Etsy  store.

I will post pictures of them soon. Along with the pot holders I made.

This year I am trying to do some qal (quilt alongs).  My internet friend Izzy and I are making a quilt from the book Sunday Morning Quilts.  We have chosen the quilt The Missing U.  It will be nice to use up more scraps.  You are welcome to play along. Just find me on Instagram-the turquoise button.

I am also trying Project quilting.  I just finished the first project.  The idea for this week was 8 is great! You could do anything as long as you completed a quilt. I made this to honor my high school. I was the Monticello Ponies mascot for two years and I graduated in 1988.  It's not as fancy or as good as the ones I have seen, but it's mine.  People can vote on their favorites and we can win prizes. I am just happy to use more stash.
Feel free to join along!

Wishing you a blessed year!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.


  1. are you kidding me - this is FANTASTIC!! I love how you spun the challenge, and I'm soooooo glad you're playing along. :)

  2. I love this! This is a great interpretation of the challenge and I'm so happy to have you joining in the fun!

  3. I'm so happy to read that your dad is doing better - hospital stays are so scary and stressful. I can't wait to get going on our Missing the U quilt - hopefully today! And I too, jumped on the Project Quilting bandwagon and will be posting my little finish later today - I love yours!! :-)

  4. Your quilt is very cute, and as you said, it is yours, so as long as it makes you happy that is all that matters.
