Happy New Year!

YAH!!  I’m glad the holiday month is over!  Not that I was overly stressed this year, but now I can get back to SEWING!!!!  WHOOOO HOOOOO….I’ve gone through all my UFO’s and removed some and redid my spreadsheet.  I had TONS of UFO’s left to do, but I’m going to do my fabric diet effort again.  No new projects for the next few months—must get at least 10 UFO’s done and ready for quilting!  I think my stash is will aid in a lot of backings as well.

I got my first issue of Irish Quilting and I’m soooooo impressed.  Sherry and her team did an awsome job on their new magazine dedicated to quilting in Ireland.  I LOVE, love love the pictures and the settings of quilts in the countryside of Ireland with brief descriptions of places.  I definitely see this magazine growing in popularity.  I ordered mine from here, but their official website is  I highly recommend getting yours today.


I also purchased a neat paper piecing borders book when I order the magazine 🙂

I’m wishing everyone a blessful and happy new year.  Wish and dream big and don’t sweat the small stuff!!  Live life!!  Love ya!



  1. Glad to see a post from you, I worry about you when I don’t hear from you. I hope to dream and wish big this year!! Have a great year.

  2. That magazine looks interesting. Off to check the site out.

  3. Happy New Year!!! I am so glad that the holidays are finally over and I can get back to sewing too! I have been trying to sort my UFO’s and quilt tops! I have 74 quilt tops that need to be quilted. Hubby said that I could buy my own quilting machine in a month or so. I am so excited!!! Hopefully, I can get alot of them quilted!

  4. I just purchased a copy of that quilting magazine from my sort of LQS – but I haven’t had a chance to actually look at it yet. Now you’ve made me want to go find it and leaf through. 🙂

    Happy New Year to you! And just so you know – I thought of you when I saw “pirate” hand towels in our local Sears store (in Canada)!

  5. That magazine looks interesting. Does it look like they use a lot of the same methods as we do?

  6. Thanks for the shout out. Wait til you see issue no. 2!! We are excited, thanks for your support. We will have a full Irish Quilting blog on the website with the arrival of issue 2!
    Have a wonderful new year!

  7. Happy New Year! Good luck finishing up your UFO’s, it does feel good to get those done.

  8. Happy New Year Sista!!!! Lets hope it’s a good (and quilty) one!!
    Are you doing Bonnie’s new mystery? I was doing a UFO (my OC) and then all of a sudden I started doing it LOL.
    That mag looks cool. I’m sure my DH would appreciate the cover 🙂
