Holy Cow...Happy New Year!

Where did the time go?  I don't know what happened, I didn't mean to disappear for two weeks, but I guess with the holidays and all that accompanies them the time just escaped me!

I did manage to finish the Christmas pants, for those wondering (not that anybody is :) ).  Once I managed to rustle up a picture I will try to post one here.  They turned out really great!  My daughter's fit GREAT, they were just a tad too long.  Mine fit great, perfect length, they were just a tad long in the front crotch-to-waist part.  My husband's fit, but were too long.  Now I know what adjustments to make for future pairs.

Other than that, there hasn't been much sewing or crafting going on over here. I managed to make two baby bibs to go with the flannel receiving blanket I made our friends.  I also managed to get the Pinwheel Baby Quilt basted, and I'm planning on going up to my sewing room as soon as I'm done with this post to get started on the quilting.  I hope I can get a good portion of it done tonight, or maybe even finish it.  I've decided to go ahead and try using my multi-color thread, I'm going to do simple straight line quilting along the diagonals. I contemplated sending it out for quilting but I really want to do this project all on my own, so I'm going to try it.  If it starts to look totally horrible, I may pull it out and change my mind, but I'm going to try first.

I'm also looking forward to some fabric shopping this Saturday.  My local quilt shop, the same one that had the crazy after Thanksgiving sale, has been having an end of year sale...the last day is this Saturday, 40% off fabric, including fat quarters, 50% off fat quarter bundles (I'm hoping there are some left!) plus big discounts on patterns, notions, etc.  I'm getting up bright and early to go!

In closing, happy new year to all of you!  Here's hoping 2010 is everything you're hoping it will be.
