New Years Quilt

Happy New Year to all of my blog friends out there!  Hubs and I celebrated New Year's Eve by watching some movies, we never go out.  We're content to stay in where it's safe and warm.  I sat and hand stitched a binding on a quilt. - Yes, Miss Jean actually finished something!!!!!

I'm sorry the lighting is so poor on this.  The pattern is Disappearing Nine Patch and the fabric is Moda's Heritage from the Collections for a Cause line.  This one happens to help support the fight for ovarian cancer.  I love the fabric, especially that border fabric.

I'm sure you noticed all the foot prints in the snow.  Nope, those are not mine.  They are all Maggie's with a few rabbit tracks thrown in.  I wish you could see her running around the yard in the morning.  It's hilarious.  "Over here - no over there - no down here - no up there!" When she's tired of running around she sits by the back door in the sun, not moving a muscle.  I think she thinks the bunnies will think she has gone inside.  So far no luck.

I don't usually make New Years resolutions, but this year I just hope to get more done around the house and finish up more of my sewing projects.  How about you?

Happy New Year, the quilt is beautiful. How are you making out in this cold weather? I went south to Dallas and it was cold there also. Omaha is cold but we are getting warmer.

Hi Gorgeous! It's so nice to be visiting you again... my blog hiatus is over. And I think I'll enjoy a cup of coffee with some of my scones while I enjoy my visit here! I absolutely love your quilt and that snow in the background is just heaven for this bay area girl as you know! ha ha You are missed girlfriend but I'm glad to see your transition to Colorado has you both settled in now. Lurve~ Janeen

Hello from Kansas.
Your quilt is gorgeous!
Love the colors.

New Year thoughts are to get many household projects completed and thin through lots of stuff and downsize those treasures I just seem to keep collecting.

I hope to drink more water and eat more greens.

God bless and may your new year be wonderful,

We also stayed in on New Year's and watched movies. We paused to hear the fireworks at midnight. What a beautiful quilt!!
