Happy 2012!

Well, it's a brand new year and I can't believe 2012 is here already. I also can't believe my last post was in October! I feel kind of bad for not posting anything but to be honest, I burnt myself out with the bicycle quilt. I took two months off from sewing and I definitely needed it. After all the food, chocolates, champagne, wine, naps and relaxing over the holidays, I am finally ready to get back into it.

 I am *this close* to finishing the quilting on my friend's housewarming gift and should have more photos soon. Tonight, I just finished this  super quick and fun pain in the ass flower block. It had 49 appliqued berries! It wasn't too challenging just time consuming. I just have two more blocks to go, and I will be able to put mom & dad's quilt together. :)

  1. Nice to see you back and I can relate to burn ourselves out. I think I did that before Christmas. Trying to get back into the sewing now.

  2. Happy New Year! Love your block, what pattern is that from?
