Always fun to see a new post from you. I hope to finish a bunch of UFO's this year as I've found a new quilter! Will be glad to have those tops done; some are quite old.


Happy New Year and enjoy your calm…


Wishing you a year of great seeing mo-jo! I like your description of your home as hushed rather than empty! I always purchase some African violets just to have a bit of green after everything is put away. Pretty blue and white theme going on in your home now!

The putting away is always a bit depressing for me. Will work on it tomorrow, today is my sewing group day at the library. Your snow man houses are cute, are you going to appliqué some frosty ☃️ men too? Poor Ahren and the super long trek home.


I’m working on an involved quilt called Anthology by Southern Charm. I have the hardest part left. It’s a collage. Any advice? Happy New Year. I like the decluttered look but also am ready to return to routine life.

Happy New Year! It sounds like you’re off to a good start! We visit my brother and sister over the New Year’s holiday, so un-decorating will probably happen this week when my son can help. I’m looking forward to getting back to the sewing room! I always appreciate your book reviews!


I see you have your fabric starched and ready to go. I have always spray starched a little but have never saturated the fabric. I should receive from Amazon today my drying rack, garden spray bottle and starch. I am going to give this a try! Glad your son made it home safely.


Happy New Year! 🎉🎊 It sounds as if you've hit the ground running! The newly starched fabrics are very pretty. Enjoy reacquainting yourself with your sewing room! Although it's sad to see him leave, I'm happy to hear Ahren made it home safely despite the delays.

I like your list! It will be fun to follow you. I didn't get my Christmas quilt done, although it is pinned. I might get back to it after I finish quilting my winter-themed top. But I'm losing interest already in Christmas so it may be packed away. i have several almost-completed tops from last year and they are the priority. Onward!


Happy New Year! I’ll be transitioning to wintry blues tomorrow, not quite finished with Christmas yet. The Snowman Gatherings line of fabric is so perfect for this time of year. I’ve a couple of quilts that I’ve made from that line that I will be hanging when the Christmas ones come down. I’m sure it was sad when your son left and sorry that his trip home was delayed.

Well you have certainly motivated me to tackle my UFOs in various stages of completion. None seem quite so lovely as yours.


Great job of starting on your UFO right away! Love that BOM - wish I had gotten it when it came out as those fabrics are hard to find.
