A Bit About Life

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a fantastic Christmas. We just returned on New Years day from a wonderful trip. We went to Zion National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Bryce Canyon, and Glen Canyon Dam. We were able to take some beautiful pictures. I'll show you a couple of my favorites. The snow in these parks really added to the beauty. We were also able to visit with family in New Mexico in Farmington. We spent a day in Durango, Colorado while we were in Farmington.

It is good to be home, but loved our trip. I am anxious to get back to sewing. I have missed that. I did take my computer along and was able to design some fun patterns.

New BOM patterns

There are still a few BOM patterns left to finish the quilt that was started in 2008. The #15 pattern will be going out to those who signed my guestbook for the BOM patterns. There is also some more GOOD news. I am starting a new series for 2009. The quilt is called Beautiful in Black. I will be sending the 1st block pattern along with the 15th pattern for the 2008 series. Those of you who signed my guestbook do NOT need to sign again. Although, I LOVE hearing from you! These patterns will come automatically to your email. Just be sure you have on your list of friends. A picture of the quilt and also the first BOM pattern is below. A picture of the 15th BOM pattern is also below.

New Quilting Patterns:

I have the new element for the progressive Month after Month wall hanging available. It is called "I Love You This Much". Of course it is for February, the month of LOVE. The picture is below.

I have so many fun things planned for the New Year. I hope you will stay tuned to see what is running through my head!

I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year!!

Keeping you in stitches!
