Goodbye 2010

Time to say goodbye to 2010 and welcome 2011. I have been in my sewing room today and am looking at a lot of UFO's. I know we all have them. I plan to pick 10 , make a list, post it, and then work on that list all year. We shall see what that list is like next December! I have done this before with good luck, so here I go again. I know there will be new projects here and there, but that just keeps my "hobby" fresh and keeps me interested. For now, I will make a list........

This one will be at the top.....of the list

Happy New Year!  Jeri

Sewing Machine Blues.....

My machine has the blues lately. With Christmas coming it hasn't seen much action. I have been too busy with shopping, wrapping, baking, etc.etc.etc. Looking forward to January and getting back at my sewing. I did get this book though recently. It has beautiful pictures and some fun projects. It is one that can sit out on the coffee table even (if I had a coffee table).

Maybe my machine needs an after Christmas gift. That cover is just too cute!

Christmas is coming!

I am finishing up these cute Christmas pillows. I won a bundle of this fabric and decided that I needed some holiday pillows.

and...I am also putting the finishing touches to get this quilt mailed to my BIL and SIL. It was a quilt that I started this summer as a mystery project with my sisters.I love the stitched label that I put on the back. I will definitely do more of these!

                                                               The Mystery is solved...

                                                        I just love this label!

I am finally getting the house in the holiday mood.....The baking has begun...I have the Christmas tunes playing. I love getting out the christmas boxes. So many treasures from the past. I have several framed pictures of my kids when they were small on santa's lap. This is one of my favorites.

Remembering John Lennon

"You may say that I'm a dreamer,
   but I'm not the only one,
   I hope someday you'll join us,
   and the world will live as one."

Bricks in the Wall

Today I am finishing the last few stitches in my Brick quilt. It was part of this quilt along 

I am so happy with it. This may just be a favorite , or one of my favorites anyway.

Isn't it a good feeling when you finally put the last stitch in..... /Jeri
