New Year's Eve

First of of all - Happy 2010! I am wishing you health, happiness, peace and contentment in the upcoming new year and all that follow, plus wishing you many happy hours spent in our shared passion of quilting. May your bobbin always be full, your needle sharp and your projects fall together effortlessly. Enjoy every minute spent with fabric and thread, girl friends! And I include in my wishes any of my family or other non-quilters reading my blog.

Resolutions - I don't think I am going to bother making any as I usually don't carry through. I probably should resolve to not start anything until I finish some of the things already in the works. Oh me, Oh my! Here is an example---I have always thought about doing hexagons - and they are fun and beautiful but they take a long time to make. I love these and do enjoy the process but at my age I think I will do something else that is a little faster. I envision doing enough to make a pretty addition to a totebag or tablerunner and not a grandmother's flower garden quilt!

Just wanted to show you what I picked up at Material Mart yesterday for $7.00. In a plastic bag, there are a lot of two and a half inch strips of the neutral fabric and a nice pile of quarter yard pieces of the same fabric plus another small print. I think this will be a great little pile of fabric that goes with lots of things. (Click to enlarge)
With hugs, Carol.

Happy New Year Carol! Your fabric find is beautiful, as are your hexagons. They do take a long time to make. My only goal for 2010 is to finish off a handful of UFO's. Other then that, I'm good to go!
