Are you ready to ring in the New Year tonight?? I have a lot of crafting to do before counting down to 2011, but I wanted to share a few things first. I have been busy making more birthday cards, this time for my Grandma's Birthday Calendar - thankfully we decided to celebrate Christmas on January 2nd with my mom's side which gave me more time to get her book in order and filled with cards! Here are just a couple that I have made. (I can't wait until I can take pictures outside again, it's so hard to get good lighting in my house.)
When I get bored with birthday cards, I switch to quilting. Here's a shot off all the fabric cut into strips just waiting to be stitched together. From the blue print to the first set of thin brown strips will be one quilt and from the green print to the second set of thin brown strips will be the other.
Yesterday, I managed to sew all the strips for one quilt together and get them cut into squares!! And even though it was late, I couldn't resist laying the squares out to see if I actually liked the fabrics we picked. Good News: I do!!
The agenda for today includes more birthday cards and a few anniversary ones as well and sewing the strips for the second quilt! Sometime this afternoon we will be heading down to some friends house to welcome 2011! I even bought myself a bottle of sparkling grape juice for the celebration!
Have a wonderful, safe and happy New Year's Eve! Thanks for stopping by!
