Rough Start 2015

Well…let’s just say my 2015 didn’t start of with a bang. Rather it started off quite terribly. Hence my absence.

I came home from vacation to discover that my fridge had died. Which means everything in my fridge had rotted, fermented and started to grow. It was awful. Truly truly awful. On top of that, as I am sitting here typing this, I just noticed my floor is bubbling where the fridge is, life is a bit upside down for me right.

Yesterday was the first opportunity I had to sew this year. I am trying to get these preschool quilts done before February 2nd. Wish me luck!

Preschool Quilt 1 - http://blog.sewbittersweetdesigns.com

At least the quilt is happy to offset the deep depression that is setting in over my homeowner issues.  I hope your year has gotten off to a better start than mine.

A Lovely Year of Finishes – January 2015 Goals Party

A Lovely Year of Finishes

 

I’m so thrilled to see so many recaps of 2014 and personally to kick 2014 out the door.

The new-ness of 2015 and all it’s possibilities make me smile.

~~~

Shanna from Fiber of All Sorts and I are so excited to be here all year long for another year of A Lovely Year of Finishes.

January will be a huge quilting month for me…

I have 4 quilts to make! And a huge deadline to hit.  Below is one of the quilt backs. The backs are all done, all I have left to do is sash the blocks for the front, quilt and bind. Wish me luck!

Preschool quilt back - http://blog.sewbittersweetdesigns.comThese quilts are being donated to Anne’s preschool and auctioned off for their scholarship fund.  The fronts are all the hand prints of the kids, and the backs are pixel hearts surrounded by the teacher hands.  I wanted this quilt to convey the love that these kids are surrounded by on a daily basis.

~~~
