Happy New Year!

I wish a very Happy New Year to all and hopefully a fun, quilt filled one as well.

What a blur this last month was! We took a little R&R trip and I really thought I would be able to do some sewing! What was I thinking? LOL  We had gorgeous weather, unlike last year's trip, so we spent all of our time outside.  Met a cute little friend..who really wanted to share our lunch...we obliged.  We watched him a day earlier jump on a woman, trying to get food and scratched her. Scared the crap out of me, I screamed and it wasn't even me!  So when we saw him stalking the pool area the next day, we just got up, warned the others and let him help himself!

Our iguana friend..who loved nachos! OURS! 

Time to get back into a regular routine again.  Making samples for classes...again! 

February Wallhanging of Month
I had a FQ bundle of Moda's Quilt Pink "Love", which I used and then created 5 kits with the leftovers.

This is the pattern pack that I used and I plan on having a class once a month. We are starting with February, so hopefully the wallhangings will be done in time for the actual month, rather than being behind. What a novel idea!  I bought my pattern at a LQS, but found them at JoAnn's now! Yeah, with a coupon. Sheesh.

 This little guy is such a's a pattern by The Wooden Bear, and I'll admit, I used my friend's idea. She made hers with a sports team fabric.  Since Ohio State University does not have licensed fabric, I bought a T-shirt and used that!  And embroidered Ohio State on the hat brim. I should have curved it a bit, but oh well.  Eyes still need attached and all the blanket stitching needs done.

Back to work and hopefully I can get more photos uploaded of what other things I've been working on.   In the meantime, stay warm and enjoy the calm that settles in after the Christmas festivities.

Our parting picture as we left Costa Rico. What a great place!
