Back to normality!

After four wonderful days off and a very Merry Christmas, life returned to normal on Thursday and I was up before the birdies and off to work. I'll be on call during the New Year celebrations, in fact, I'm on call right now, evidenced by the two phone calls I received before 09.30!  Well, that's why they pay me. :-)

Was 2011 a crafty year for you? 
I finished only 3 quilts in 2011. Hard to believe I know. 
Butterfly Fling.

 The Shirt off His Back.

Charming Stars.

But I've also knitted my way through the year and forgotten to take pictures of some of that.
I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in Chookyblues SSCS, and making handmade gifts for other friends and family. I have all manner of things planned for 2012, I promised DS Jiffy a new blue quilt, and I have all manner of WIPs up in my play room.
This will turn into a ramble if I don't leave soon so

Happy New Year to all of my readers.
 I wish you all the very best and loads of time to do the things you love.
Best wishes for 2012.

Happy New Year to you, Lou! Glad you had some finishes to show and plenty of planned playtime for 2012. Love the feet growing out of the Shirt quilt...are they getting bigger and bigger all the time?

they are lovely quilts..dont appologise ANY finishes are worth while xx

Like you, I can't believe all the sewing I've done has resulted in so few finishes! Mind you the pile of tops in the cupboard rather gives it away for me! Good quilting in 2012, and we'll see if we can meet up for a coffee at the NEC this year.

All the Best to you and the Kiwi for 2012. Yes, lots of time to sew and play would be just right.
