Happy New Year

Can't believe a whole year is gone!  Did you get all your UFO's done?  Did you meet your goals? No matter what you answered, I bet you still love to quilt!  Maybe this is the year to give away some of those UFOs and start fresh.

I found a nice tutorial by Little House by the Sea for mushroom pincushions.  They are absolutely darling.  Remember the mushroom craze from years ago and the owl craze.  My husband's grandmother had flocks of owls in her kitchen and now they're back.  Little House by the Sea also has a nice tutorial for crocheted hats which might be a nice project for this time of year and also very cute slippers.  Get those hooks going!

To start out the New Year and get a new set of skills, why not check out Leah at Free Motion Quilting Project for her outline on learning to free motion quilt.  She always has some great ideas and you can spend hours at her blog.

Sentimental Stitches is starting a It Just Takes 2 Block  BOM. You will love the red and white that she used. I love the addition of embroidery too.
Have a great week.   Diana
