2015 Quilting Goals

I am so enjoying the New Year Challenge for 2014.  I have been able to finish at least one project a month.  The thought of next year has crept in.  Seeing my piles of scraps, as some of you may have, and being influenced to join in the Scrappy Quilts Group, Leaders and Enders, my goal for 2015 will be to make 12 scrap quilts.  That is one a month.  I believe this is doable.

Along with that goal of scrap quilts, finishing 22 kits I have purchased will be a goal as well.

Life with new knees and other miscellany

It's the end of week four after double knee replacement surgery and things are going pretty well.  I am making progress and even getting some sewing done.  Above is the Christmas stocking I just finished today for new granddaughter Ruby Charlotte who is almost three months old already.  I will get it off in the mail to her Monday, arriving in time for Christmas and St.…

Husband's quilt

Thanks, Rogue.  He got kind of shiney-eyed when I gave it to him.  He wasn't expecting it.  And I had been sitting right next to him the night before, binding it.
