Happy New Year and FNwF

Happy New Year!

I hope that 2018 was a great year for you and that 2019 will prove to be even better.

As I look back on the last 12 months I realize that I was very busy both inside and outside of the sewing room.  I started to write a blog post recapping my 2018 but it quickly became too overwhelming.  With the advent of Instagram, I – like many others – do most of my sharing there and my blog has fallen silent.  I’ve decide to forego the recap and try to refer back to 2018 events as they are relevant to what I am currently sharing.

I will start right here…

Our local quilt shop began a Saturday block-of-the-month program last May.  They do not call it a Saturday Sampler but that is essentially what it is.  You are given fabric and a block pattern.  You pay for the first block and as long as you finish that block and bring it to class the following month then you do not pay for the next block.

Around July, my friend and I decided to join.  We caught up on the May and June blocks and have kept current.  Here are my blocks:






I joined Cheryll over at Gone Stitchin' for her Friday Night with Friends event and finished December’s block in time to ‘show’ for class yesterday.

No sewing for me today.  My husband has kindly agreed to help me reorganize and deep clean the kitchen after church and before the Eagles football game today.

Wish us luck!
