Fresh Sewing/Small Blog

A new year, a new adventure.  Or something to that effect!

Looking back on this year, it has been great.  I started quilting in Feb/March, pretty much on a whim.  I LOVE it.  It is the perfect hobby for me, and really works well for my lifestyle.  I finished my degree in nursing, started a new job, and life is really taking off.

When I first started blogging, I was using Photobucket.  Turns out that flickr way rocks.  So, the first mosaic will be from Photobucket, and it will include everything up until Dec (minus a few small projects I won't bother showing).

1. Flannel Baby Quilt 2. Wall Hanging 3. Postage Stamps Quilt 4. Ironing Board Cover 5. Table Runner
6. Heated Rice Bag 7. Zig-Zag Baby Quilt 8. Fantabulous Fandango Quilt 9. Pat's 9 Patch

I've managed to somehow gain a few followers, and I hope that you all have enjoyed what I share.  I definitely enjoy reading other blogs, and due to wanting to follow everyone, I dedicate a fair chunk of time to it!!  I've learned so much from blogs and tutorials, which is helpful as I live pretty much in the middle of nowhere and advice is hard to come by!

Here is my work for December:

Dec '11 Finishes
Starry Eyed Quilt, Bags, Bag
This year I have a few goals:
  • Finish a quilt for my parents and sisters
  • Participate in a few bees/swaps
  • Expand my FMQ repertoire 
So, here's to 2012!

I've linked up to the Small Blog Meet and Fresh Sewing Day at Lily's Quilts.  Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out the beautiful things everyone is making!
