Time Off

I kind of feel like 2010 was never going to end!  Out with the old and in with the new.

We had a fun holiday break.  I've been off from work for about 2 weeks, and I have to admit it is going to be so hard going back!  I have enjoyed the time with my kids, playing with their new toys, reading books, fun day trips etc.  But let's be honest.  I've really enjoyed some good sewing time!

I have been working on a quilt for a customer this last week which she brought to me cut out.  I happened to have the same quilt cut out also.  So, why make one when you can make two?

I think this may be my "thing" for 2011.  There are several quilt patterns which I have bought multiple fabrics to make it in.  It only takes a little extra time to cut out a second.  Chain sew the blocks and you're golden!  I think this way I can get a few extra projects in this year.  I also have some extra fabric leftover from this line (Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey).  Another goal I'm making for myself is to use up all my fabric.  I have enough left for a small quilt or runner, so I'm going to try and get that done in the next few days also.  We'll see how it goes!
