Happy New Year!

WOW!  It is already January 17th!   We had a very busy fall and beginning of winter!   The end of September brought us an 8 month old dalmatian rescue... Introducing Lucas!   Here he and Poochie are telling Santa what they want for Christmas!  I think  their Christmas list was fulfilled and they are both happy.   After Patches left, Poochie was very sad and we were  very sad.  Lucas became available and he needed a home and we needed a puppy to love, and they say the rest is history.  He just turned a year old this month and is attending obedience school but the first 8 months of his life he had very little training so he is a challenge. But the love he gives is worth it.

 


I have been trying to finish up things from last year before starting new projects, so far I have finished more than I started so I would say I am doing well!   This is a baby quilt that will be donated to my quilt guild -- I started it last summer and finally got it quilted and bound this weekend.  So glad to have this ready to turn in at our meeting this month.   



OK now this is a new project, but I had to make one I saw it on the web and thought it would be a cute mug rug, so I made this last weekend.  Quick and easy!  this was a new project....one for one so far!



This is also a new project, I wanted a red purse for February -- for Valentines days and for Go Red for Women in February so today I shopped my stash and made a bag that is perfect for me!
 
  This is a finish from last year I had the 4 patches done but nothing  else, so last weekend I added  the applique heart and now I have a new candle mat.      



These mug rugs were to be at a show in December, well as you can see that did not happen -- but I have 4 of the 6 I started done, and 2 more need the binding sewn on ...wich I will do tonight when I am done updating my blog! 


Also finished 2 Halloween table runners from last year.  So I am pretty pleased at my finishes so far this month -- I have a rubbermaid tote of items not finished from 2015 -- so I am trying to turn that into a tote of things for shows this year.   I will keep you posted on this!

Lots of blog things going on too Bee In My Bonnet starts her sew along tomorrow I want to participate it and I am embroidering blocks from Sentimental Stitches blog and then Buttermilk Basin has a wool project that is going on too!  I have plenty to do with these new projects and my old projects.  So I am sure to keep very busy this year

I hope 2016 is going to be a great year for you!
Happy Stitches
