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!
