Someone please wake me up ... how did it get to be 2011 already?

Like many of us, I am in total wonder & maybe a bit of shock that the last year has totally come and gone.  Have I been busy?  Oh, yeah!  Discovered a new love - for embroidery - but still enjoying my 1st love of quilting .  Still dreaming of combining the two into a stunning quilt design.  Alas, so many quilts to make, so little time, or so it seems.

What's on your design wall?   I just finished block 6 of the Patchwork Party Fall '09 quilt.  It's gorgeous and yes, I am taking my time.  Of course the last two months were a blur with no time for personal sewing.

I do so plan to complete this beautiful quilt this year!!

Am also challenged by the Scrap Quilt Challenge to finish my scrap quilt that I started last year.  Just did an inventory and I need 22 more blocks, so off to the scrap bin I go.  With that many blocks to make I am SURE to make a dent in those ever populating scraps that I have so painstakingly cut and sorted!

Update ... only 16 more to go! How bout this French braid for the borders?  I love the way it gobbles scrap!

Here's some pictures of things that I've made in the past few months.  Will try to post only a few at a time.  I had fun embroidering my gifts this year - but did some sewing & made an adorable quilted purse for my niece (which she loved!)  If you don't know what to make for a 15 year old girl, I've got the perfect, simple (yes, super simple), but adorable project.

Is this adorable?  The flap is removable so you can have a whole wardrobe of flaps!  It also has fabulous pockets on the back and on the inside. I'm definitely making one for myself!

This is the snappy little bag I made for my niece... only 7 x 10 & oh so cute!

Duffle Bags ... these bags are HUGE & perfect for traveling!!  My customer loves her bags so much, she keeps ordering more of them.... they make a fabulous personalized gift.  Next one will be in Purple & Gold!

And the adventure continues in 2011!  May your year be blessed and your joy overflow.  May your hands find work that your truly love.
