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........
It is time. We have finally waited long enough. Christmastime! Soon I will have my kids home and all will be well. Here is hoping everyone has a wonderful holiday. I certainly know mine will be ..... wonderful.
Remember there is a reason for the season. Merry Christmas.
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!
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.

Today is the day that this book is being released. I have had my copy purchased for over a month now anxiously awaiting its' release. I am looking forward to putting some words into my quilts. This should be fun!
