December is Just About Over

Well December has just about come and gone and I'm happy to say that I got my last 2 Charming Girls goals finished. I got a couple of Tuffets done and finished my Picnic top...I am just in love with these Schnibble patterns. They are so fun!

My January goals are...1. Make 6 more Tuffets for gifts...I'm going on a retreat the end of January and these will be wonderful. 2. Cut out a baby quilt 3. Cut out a project to take to work on at the retreat.

This will be my last post for 2009...I'm picking mom up tomorrow and we are leaving Thursday morning at 6:30 for Birmingham... I can't wait to get there. We'll be back next week...wishing all of you a wonderful, happy, healthy, safe New Year...now if we can just figure out how to slow down 2010...I think 2009 was the fastest year of my life.

And, your Schnibbles quilt is so sweet - hmmmm need to get busy making those, as well. :-)

Have a wonderful time with the grandchildren! I love the little tuffets, those pin cushions are just adorable. One never has enough pincushions in mho.
Love the quilt too, I need to buy a few of her schnibbles quilt patterns, just love them.

I agree this year went wayyyyy too fast for me too.
Heres to lots of quilting in 2010 and a slower pace of time.
