for the year. Can you believe it? I think we all say the same thing, each and every year. Well, too bad it hasn't slowed down for any of us!
I havent stitched much the later part of the year, I just havent felt like it. In the last couple of weeks, I did manage to take time and I made 2 quilts. I am excited about them and looking forward to making more. In fact, I just pulled out 3 I have 'kitted' up. Do you say that for quilting-- kitted? Either way, I am looking forward to those.
First up, I know that alot of you have had posted a year in review and I think that is so wonderful to go back and look at the amazing progress that was accomplished this year. I have completed several beautiful samplers-- coming to mind of course is Dutch Beauty and Elizabeth Mears.
Below, is La D Da- Peace House. I LOVE this frame on this sampler. It is 2 3/4" wide on this super cute I think 5 x 7-- 40ct piece. Where oh where to hang them?!!!!
This coming year, I am not sure what will be accomplished on the stitching front, I have a start picked out for tomorrow, but I don't know if I will start it tomorrow, or in the next little bit. I am still plugging away on Jane Tindall, and finally starting the animals on the bottom. It seems like I have been stitching on her for years. But slow and steady right? Maybe she will be my first finish? I have to pull out my stash and play with it for a bit, perhaps I will get the bug back.
Until then, my desire for beautiful fabrics for gorgeous quilts continues :) There are sooo many options and I want to quilt them all!! LOL.
In the beginning of November you might remember I had made a quilt with my mom. We both used the same fabric grouping and each made something different. I had mine quilted over Thanksgiving and I finished the binding last week. It is amazing the difference of when you finish it. It is the equal to framing your sampler right?
The 2nd quilt I bought also as a kit from a shop that was having an end of year inventory sale and I was thrilled to be able to participate. I bought this of course among other things-- kitted up a few other quilts. I am trying to be brave and piece the fabrics together. I have no issue changing the colors on my cross stitch, so quilting shouldnt be that hard right? It really has to do with how much fabric, like I mentioned before in a previous post.
Until next time, enjoy the rest of 2013, and Happy New Year to all of you!!!!!!

Without wasting anymore time, and leaving you all in suspense since last time, here we go!
I am so pleased as usual with my pieces and just have to find the perfect place to hang them now.
I have a couple more just picked up but I dont have pics of those just yet. I will share them with you shortly. Hopefully I can get my stitching bug back and share some beautiful WIPs I have going. But in the mean time..... thank you for visiting my blog.
I hope each and everyone of you has a Merry Christmas! It is such a wonderful time of year, of course after you get past all of the hustle and bustle. Relaxing, enjoying your families and remembering the real reason for the season.
