Happy New Years!!

Just wanted to take a moment to wish all of you a VERY Happy New Years! I did not fall of the face of the planet, honest :) One of my resolutions is to update my blog FAR more often than I did in 2011, and that begins with a new post tomorrow!! So for now, here's to a HAPPY and HEALTHY New Years for you and your families!!

What about the Process?

Now really...what ABOUT the process?

That's what I asked myself after reading this gem of an idea called The Process Pledge! I took the pledge after reviewing the majority of my quilt-related posts and realized that I AM one of those bloggers that only posts about the finished project...NOT the process! And after thinking on it a bit, I realize that there may be some quilters who are interested in seeing projects "in process" as much as the finished I'm going to endeavor to post more often...and more in process :) Since I haven't managed to finish much this year, this method will at least lead to me posting more! LOL

Nothing like a Show Ribbon to make your quilting day!

I joined a guild this year and decided to enter a few of my quilts in the show! would you believe that I ribboned for both of them? I came in 4th in the large pieced catagory, and the quilt is my own design and my small pieced quilt came in second :) What a wonderful surprise!

You would think that I would have been inspired to finish more quilts by these ribbons, but I haven't made much progress on anything so far this Spring! I think the never-ending cold weather has me still in hibernate mode! lol Maybe some warmer temps will unthaw my quilting mojo ;)

Birthday quilt!

Here's my latest finish! It's a red and white birthday quilt for my middle niece, Karen! At Christmas she was hinting strongly that she would love a Auntie Robin made it happen! I will not be giving it to her in person, as she lives several states away in NH, so when I get a pic of her with the quilt I'll post that as well.

Boy, it's nice to finish something bigger than a breadbox for a change LOL I really need to get moving on my UFO Challenge list though! I think my recent visit with my 2 quilt-crazy BFFs, Michelle and Peg, has given me some extra momentum so I intend to put it to good use!!

First Finish of 2011!


And it's an OH SO APPROPRIATE Snowman! LOL We received a little snow over the last day, but not nearly as much as was forecast! They keep telling us that there's more headed our way next better get my snow boots ready! LOL

P.S. this little snowman has been working OVERTIME since I put him up...we're expecting ANOTHER large snowstorm this week...that will be approximately 1 sizable storm a week since Christmas!! Man..I better put up another mini and pack my snowmen away...I think I jinxed us! LOL

The Wool Crazy Pincushion Craze!

  Some of us have jumped on the Wool Crazy Pincushion bandwagon :) I'm participating in a wool pincushion round robin with the BPF retreat gals and here is my crazy base with my even crazier "scary-creepy" halloween theme! I think I"m going to love doing these and think there are more wool crazy projects in my future!!! Can't wait to see what develops with this pincushion!
