Happy New Year !!!

This will be my last Post for 2008 - I'm really looking forward to starting 2009 tomorrow! 'They say' ... 'whatever you do on New Year's Day, you will do for the rest of the year' ... guess what I will be doing and let's hope that old saying comes true!

Yesterday was another Girlfriends' Day - lovely to swap tales about what we have done over Christmas. Also, nice 'show and tell' - Pat's Kaffe Fassett quilt is a stunner, all those yummy, bright colours!
Mmmm, interesting! This is a Fly Veil - made to cover food at our outdoor picnics, etc. Jan made this one from tulle and since making her first one she has had to make several more for other friends and family - a great idea!

Jan has made this gorgeous little quilt for latest grandson, Patrick. Beautiful quilting - shame it isn't showing up better. The lovely little scallops are supposed to be individually held down with buttons - maybe when Patrick is a little older!

A story book quilt for Sally's little grand-daughter - just gorgeous!

Myra, of Tactile Pleasures in Fabric, and I recently discussed doing a PIF swap with each other if we didn't get enough starters. Well, we both have, but I received an email from Myra this morning to say she's still in for it - I'd love to do it, too, Myra, so - let's go!
Enjoy your celebrations this evening, thank you so much for joining in my Blogland fun in 2008, this has all been a new and wonderful experience for me!
♥ ... Stay Safe ... Hugs and Best Wishes ... ♥ !!!

Such talented ladies...I love the story book quilt. Are those printed panels? LOVE the scalloped baby quilt. Something I plan to do in 2009 is actually do the scallops on a baby quilt I need to finish. Anything Kaffe is gorgeous. Happy New Year!

Juliann said...

Looks like a fun day. Can't wait to see what you choose to do on New Year's Day. I hope it included fabric.

You always have the best time and things to show with your friends. I love that Kaffe quilt. Stunner is right! Wow. I'm all for the little New Years superstitions. Eat cabbage for a propserous new year. I've got to go get some today!

Julie said...

Ooooo, I love the fly veil. could have really used one last night at our BBQ. I ended up draping tea towels all over the food. Not the best solution.

Jantine Urban said...

Best wishes for the new year all the way from the Netherlands! I love that bright quilt in the beginning of your post! I was sewing a binding on on new years day so that must mean I will finish a lot this year ;-).
