Whew! I worked a LOT of hours in the four days around the first of the year, so I am delighted to have a couple days off. GUESS WHAT??? Lori is having a quilt along!! It is a Cheri Payne inspired quilt...we are just all doing our own thing and making a quilt all our own, based on Cheri's quilt. I don't have the pattern, so I think it is great fun to design my own, pretty much based on her blocks. Lori blogs at Humble Quilts, below...this just started and so you can start and be all caught up right now!!
Bonnie Hunter, as you probably know, has designed a fabulous mystery quilt each year around Christmas and the holiday time frame. I have not been QUITE (snort) keeping up with all the clues, but the big reveal has already been done! It is GORGEOUS!! However, I have been playing in the pieces and parts I have made...so I made this block. I love to play in the pieces!! Leftovers are lovely!
I think that every New year I am going to toss the socks that I just CANNOT find matches for. Start the year fresh...or maybe I could just feed them to the dryer/washer system so the socks I have matches for will not be eaten, LOL! I always save mismatches, hoping the sock will show up...but it is time to start fresh.
2017 exercise review:
My goal was to walk 2017 miles in the year 2017, and I walked 2156, so I did it! Lots of those steps are taken at my work...but hey, they all count. Onward for 2018 miles in 2018!
Just looking back, I started a whole bunch of quilts, and got quite a ways into making most of them. I won't bore you with all my starts, but on the list this year is to finish quite a few, but also to continue to start things. New ideas and fun quilt alongs make it just fresh and oh so fun for me. So onward!!
Have a super day, each of you!!
