Happy New Years!!!

Happy New Years!!!

I don't make resolutions for the new year but I try to set goals. I haven't really had a chance to sit down and think about my goals for 2012 yet. I do know that one of them will be to continue working on my quilts, trying to do at least a little each day, even if it is only 15 minutes.

Here are a couple of new quilts I've finished up. This first one is a little quilt mounted on a quilted background. I've been trying to figure out a way to display small quilts and I like the way the small quilts look on a larger quilted piece.

Here is a closeup. Once again, I've used painted cheesecloth over a strip pieced background. I think it gives it sort of a painted look.

This is one of the circle pieces I started a while ago. I experimented with using the decorative stitches on my sewing machine.

Three Trees

Here's my latest project. I just finished it up tonight. Wanted to post it tonight before I go to bed or I don't know when I'd get a chance to.

Now I've got to get to work on a piece for the silent auction at the North Country Studio Workshops in January. I'm really looking forward to my class with Sue Benner.

In the Works

Just a little teaser of a new project I'm working on. Have to get ready for work so can't say much about it yet.

Tuesday was the Fiber Divas Christmas party. Lots of fun, food and friends. I was so inspired after getting together that I spent the whole evening down in my work area. I also spent most of yesterday down there too. Now back to reality for a little while. Work and Christmas stuff to do. Gary set up our old tv and a dvd player for me downstairs so now I can play movies while I sew. I'm one of those people who works better with something to watch or listen to. Sometimes music is ok but other times I want something more especially when I'm downstairs for a long time.

Better get moving. More later.
