2015 is a Wrap

A New Year wrap up of 2015 and changes for 2016.

I didn't get a whole lot finished the past year. 

I made this cute little wall hanging as a gift for Dawn at SewYouQuilt2.


A wall hanging for the We Support You Blog hop.





A baby quilt for the new niece Miss Violet.

Basket case full of Posies Quilt
Holly Jolly Table Runner
Talkin Turkey Table Runner

 And some small things

St. Patrick's Table Topper
 Fall table topper
Halloween Table Toppers-  I made 3 of these!
Some pillowcases
A shopping bag
Apron
I did tally that I read 94 books last year too! 

You can really tell when I am not around the house I don't get a whole lot of sewing done! 

As to my word for 2015 it was Reduce and oh did we reduce!  I cleaned out my closet we took several garbage bags full of clothing to charities, sheets which did not have matches anymore, and other linens were set aside to use the fabrics.  I also lost about 40 lbs due to a huge change in my diet due to being diagnosed being pre diabetic.  Not a bad way to reduce.

 What is 2016 going to bring?  I am going to join the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for 2016.  I would love to use up some my scraps.  I am going to make these blocks.

Sawtooth Square

 Crown and Star
 Twisted Blossoms
 Navajo

I think one block a week in the color would be easy, and at the end of the year I would have 4 more flimsies!  Maybe 5 or 6!

I will keep up with my current projects, both large and small. 

Right now the current hurry up and finish project is a quilt for the soon to be born grandson. DH actually took a trip with me to one of my favorite LQS to look for fabric.  There were many comments from women as he helped me select fabrics.  These are the fabrics which I have chosen.  I will supplement from my stash also. 

 I have taken several different quilts and will meld them into a quilt. 

Two blocks done, and a few more to go.  I had a wee bit of time this evening to start the 3rd block I am putting in the quilt.


2016 is off to a splendid start!

Wonderful finishes--you did a whole lot of things I think. I have a two word goal: "Move on/Let go"--uh I know that's four (duh!!) but it's an "either or". Move on with my life and let go of "things"...hugs and good luck with RSC this year will be enjoying seeing your blocks...hugs Julierose

Way to go on the weight loss too!

Oh my goodness! What a fabulous year of quilty projects! You accomplished so much! Yes, you had your medical issues, but losing 40 pounds must be a bonus...at least, it would be to me! Hope you have a fabulous 2016!

I think you got a ton of stuff accomplished last year, especially with so many "issues" going on!
