HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year!
I cannot believe that it's 2011 already.  I started my blogging one year ago!
With the start of this new year I am going to try posting more regularly as a journal of my quilting life!
This weekend my daughter, son in law and darling grandson came to visit.  We had a great time and I just love spending time with my grandson.  He is a ball of energy and has so much fun playing.  We even sewed together and he had fun doing that.  He helped me make this runner yesterday and I finished it today. 



 Here is a close-up view.  I added a flange and some cluny lace to this quick and easy "10 Minute Runner".

My grandson was a good boy at the sewing machine keeping his hands out of the way and waiting patiently until it was time to push the reverse button and the thread cutting button.  Everytime the machine went into reverse he laughed.

Today I have my family Holiday Gathering which I enjoy every year!  It's so much fun to see everyone and just have a relaxed celebration.

Enjoy the day and...
Happy Sewing!

I am so glad you had your grandson for a few days. What a joy. Cannot wait to make that runner. I plan to bring enough fabric and ribbons, lace, etc. to make a bunch at the class. They will make great gifts!
