After a wonderful day with family and friends for en early New Year's Eve celebration, I am just relaxing and watching Dick Clark's Rocking New Year's Eve Party. I miss that guy, but Ryan is doing a great job.
Check in with my blog tomorrow to see the finished quilt top for My Magical Garden. I'm exited to share it with you, and I'll do that....as soon as I wake up after a very late night watching the ball drop in NYC (from the comfort of my own warm bed!)
Wishing my friends, family and followers a very safe and happy New Year's Eve!

I spent today working on a handy color chart that you can use to coordinate your fabrics for the upcoming Quilt-Along. We know you have all have our Rotary Cut Applique tools sitting in your workroom. So let's get them out and start using them!

So, now that the BOM quilt is finished (and don't forget the big reveal day and sign up for the Quilt-Along is January 1!) what will I work on next? I have so many ideas, but nothing is fully formed and ready to jump right in. No fabric is calling to me, and no fresh idea is nagging at me, waiting to get done. I guess I am in a Quilting Slump!

Once you know what our Leaves Galore tools can do, there is inspiration everywhere! Whether you are looking at wallpaper, carpets or stained glass windows, you can find these beautiful curved shapes that come together into gorgeous patterns.

Well, you may have noticed that I forgot to blog yesterday! Jason was finally home to help me finish decorating the tree and I made dinner for him and my hubby.

As it is, Jeff and I are going to leave for England on January 4th so we only have two more weeks with bo

I have just finished my Christmas shopping online and WHOO HOO! Everything will be delivered to my door. Here in New England it has been a cool 23 degrees, and I'm doing all my shopping in my jammies so I don't have to go out in the cold!
Have you been a good girl this year? Maybe Santa will fill your stocking with some great sewing gadgets.
