As 2017 winds down and we start gearing up for the new year, it is time to once again think about my studio time in the past year.
…..and then “Himilayan Hallows’”…..
Both of these finishes were helped by the guild quilt show deadline!!!
Next came a special quilt for a very special little boy named Bo…..
….and with my friend Claire on her first quilt…..
By the way, we have continued to meet once a week and Claire is getting really good with piecing. She even got a sewing machine for Christmas…..
and told me this morning that she has made two nine-patch blocks…..cant wait to see them!!!
The final finish of the year was also pushed along by a deadline….the Ombre challenge……
I am happy to have this quilt hanging in my office for the next few months.
Hopefully it will be my first finish of 2018!!
Speaking of the new year, I have to say that we are REALLY ready for 2017 to be over. It has been a long, hard year, punctuated with the various medical issues that Michael has had to deal with. Looking toward 2018, we have pledged to each other to LIVE each and every day and to try not to waste our time worrying about what COULD happen in the future!!
To that end, I have decided that my word for the year will be …..
BRING IT ON!!!!
