2011 Bits and Pieces

My gifts from Robbie, rooee's confetti, for the Santa Sack Swap2. You can read my comments and see all the of the other amazing gifts sent and received by some fantastic quilters on the Santa Sack Swap2 blog. I love everything I received. Thanks, Robin. And a heartfelt thanks to Carol of Carol's Crafty Creations for sponsoring the wonderful Santa Sack Swap2.

I've been out of blogland and way too far from my sewing machine for a while. The last couple of months of 2011 were .... well, let's just say I'm glad those months are behind me. There were a few great things that happened ...
The magazine is super COOL! I chomping at the bit to try my hand at many, many of the lovely blocks! Read their blog Quilty Pleasures.

I won these two wonderful patterns from Lesley of Sew Happy-Me on her Fourth Day of Christmas Giveaway. I stole borrowed the pictures from her blog as the patterns are not yet here - we decided she would ship after Christmas to avoid the lost Christmas mail.

That concludes my windup of 2011. Most folk are busy writing resolutions for the New Year. I elected to skip out! My New Year's resolutions from past years have been kept for somewhere between 24 hours and 6 days - No! I have never made a full week! I do have some "dreams" for 2012 which I will keep to myself for now.

My niece's first cross-stitch project gifted to me. I'm told this took her two years - pretty amazing for a now 8 year old. The back has her name and documents this is her 1st Cross-Stitch Project completed in 2011..
