Today's Project

Good morning.

I spent the last couple of days pulling wools and cutting out pieces for my newest project. Sorry for the sideways picture...I can't get it to flip. I'll be stitching this one down for a while. A nice wooly project to keep me warm for the next few days (hopefully not weeks).

This warm wooly project will be heading to a friends home when it is finished. I sure hope she likes it.

Have a wonderful day my friends!!

First Finish of the Year...I Guess Not

Hello there blogging buddies.

 I finished my brown and pink quilt and was going to show you today, but I have lost the ability to post pics on my blog. Might be a while until I figure it out. I'm not very computer savvy. Any help would be appreciated!!

Have a good day~Becky

2013 Goals

I have decided to set some goals for myself in this New Year. I have decided that I would like to take some time to do some things for me. One of those goals is to spend more time with family and friends just enjoying their company. I did just that today....I went to lunch with a girlfriend. We had a wonderful time. It was so nice to just sit and talk and enjoy a wonderful meal.
Another goal set is to completely finish at least one quilted project a month. I have so many projects that they could keep me busy for the rest of my life. I am not kidding...and bad girl that I am...I keep on adding to the pile.
So today I worked on a few of my projects. I decided to start with a super simple one to get me motivated. A simple little quilt made up of 9 four patch blocks and a border. Here are the cut squares all ready to go.
My nine completed 4 patch blocks.

The 9 blocks all sewn together....

And the finished top with the border added.

I got it quilted and the binding sewn on. I just need to hand sew the binding to the back of the quilt and it will be finished. I'm planning on completing it tonight.
I also quilted another small quilt that I had sitting around and quilted 2 little mini quilts. These all need bindings yet, but I feel I accomplished quite a bit today. Now to just keep going.
I have also set a couple of other personal & professional goals for the year, but won't bore you with those.
Have a wonderful evening~Becky
