New Years Eve 2013

Happy New Years Eve everybody.  If you went to a party or traveled, I hope you stayed safe.  I stayed inside this New Years Eve and chatted on the phone with my friend Dan while he was on his way to see his fiance and friends.  I love going hands free with him because I can sew and chat at the same time.  It's a good thing that he doesn't mind hearing the sewing machine go.  LOL.

I feel pretty good about what I finished up for 2013.  I still have projects that aren't finished but overall I'm pleased with productivity.  Today, in fact, I managed to finish up another Civil War block from the BOM offered through Custom Quilt Kits, Inc.

It gave me problems and it isn't the best but it was the best I could do.  I got it close enough that I told myself that I wouldn't tear it apart (again) and just will settle with it looking like that.

Not sure what I"ll do with this when it is all done.  I'll probably give it away so I don't have to look at it.  This is definitely one of those "do to learn" type things.  I'm not good at piecing but I am getting better (sigh).

Then I decided to finish laying out the applique for "Feather Fancy".  That is more because I had to make sure I had cut out all the pieces.  It will be put on a white background but I haven't figured out yet which of my "white on white" fabrics I want to use.  This will give you an idea of what it will look like.

The light green is a lot prettier in person.  The camera on my phone didn't do it justice.  It's one of the greens from the Stonehenge line.

I also have some extra "feathers" or "leaves" left over and received some in the mail today from a friend.  I'll have to find a use for them.  The red circles were extras from another project where I used the Grapes of Wrath GO! die on them.  That uses up my extra's for circles so might have to cut some more just to keep on hand.  They have come in handy so far.

Guess I'll get to bed now and think about it.  :)  Everybody be safe and I'll post tomorrow.  I hope you had a great ending to 2013.
