A great way to start the year . . .
I have had a wonderful start to the new Year
if it's true that what you do on the first day of the new year you will do through out the year
2012 will be a wonderful year
we spent the early hours of the morning celebrating the new year in the company of our
good friends and their family
then i did some sewing on the sewing machine
it's the first time in quite a while i have made the time to do some machine work
and it felt soooo good
i think i need a sign for the machine that's say
"you know you want to, and you know you will really enjoy it"
any way, i did some work on "Durlindana"
previously i had planned to name this quilt Cappella
however have decided to name the quilt in honour of my late Nonna (grandmother) in law
i have also done some work on Miss S's quilt with the mission being that all the appliqué
be completed by the end of the year and the quilt be batted up
and ready for hand quilting in 2013
here you can see Miss S's quilt in my new sewing box that my mum
gave me for christmas, you can also see one of the fabulous bags that i received from
this is my gorgeous new sewing box, when my mum gave it to me she said
"i thought you could use it for your jewellery "
i instantly thought
"i will be using it for my sewing"
these are my gorgeous gifts that i received in my SSCS swap
i just love the fabrics
so fresh and bright and so handy i have already put two of them to use
Annalise also gave me this beautiful thimble which is just fantastic as i love everything French
i have ever since i was a little girl
so i was very very excited to get this thimble
so now i have done all his sewing i am going to finish my day with a nice
and a swim in my pool
hope your hands are working on something that you love
and i look forward to sharing my life with you all in 2012
