1-1-11 Happy New Year!
Was so thrilled to receive this wonderful hooked rug from Kelley, a Yahoo friend, for Christmas. Kelley makes the most gorgeous rugs, and I was thrilled to receive one of her wonderful creations.
Our oldest daughter drew these pictures of her Grandmother as a young girl, a teenager, and a young woman (1930s - 1940s) for her sister's Christmas present. We all were thrilled so see what a wonderful, heartfelt present she gave her sister, and we are so proud of her drawing talent.
Think this is the year of the little quilt as I have been reading on many others' blogs, so wanted to show one I finished and handquilted in 2010. Little quilts appeal on so many levels: its a way to test out different fabric color combinations; an incentive to finish a project from start to finish when time and patience are limited; and they are so fun to display! I love the hand quilted look, and since this was my first attempt on a little quilt, hopefully I will become better at it... I can already imagine different designs and thread colors to use on the next one.
Looking forward to a great 2011, and I am so grateful to have met so many fellow bloggers during 2010 whose blogs I have thoroughly enjoyed, and who have enriched my life through comments left on my blog. Can't wait to see the projects we all have ahead of us this year!
