Happy New Year 2009!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a great start to the New Year! I definitely did. We had a wonderful, relaxing and mostly quiet Christmas this year. It was great!

My nieces from Oklahoma came for a visit over Christmas and New Years. Hailey and Gentry were thrilled!

I managed to get the first table and the first shelving unit in my new studio. I say the first as I'll need more of each, but I was thrilled that things were starting to come together in there. My dear friend, Jackie, came by earlier this week and we spent nearly 10 hours in there sewing away together. It was wonderful. I managed to finish the top for my step-mom's quilt and hope to get it basted before the weekend is over.

I also worked on two other quilts at the same time. The Autumn Sassy Sixteen is nearly finished, just three border sides left. So hopefully I can post a picture of it tomorrow. The third quilt is that Victorian inspired Christmas Braids quilt. The center calls for 6 braids and as you can see in the picture, only 3 are complete. However, the other three I'm working on at the same time.
Tomorrow should be another great sewing day. And maybe I'll get something organized in there too...or not. ;)

I love that quilt top for your stepmom. What pattern is it? I want to make one just like it!

Happy New Year!
