Another Year Bites the Dust

It's hard to believe that another year has come and gone, and harder still to believe that a week ago we were all waiting for Christmas.

We got a new computer, out of necessity, a couple of weeks ago and I’m still trying to get used to it.  Everything I go to do is different, including my blog post.  I use Windows Live Writer for my blog and it is all different.  I don’t like change which I guess is a sure sign I’m getting old!

I have to share the most amazing gift I received from Sandra.  She always puts so much thought and effort into her gift giving and I can only imagine the hours she must have spent putting this together.  She copied pictures from my blog and Facebook and made this mosaic picture of my baby.  I hope you can click on it and make it bigger and you’ll see that each square is made up of one of, or parts of, my quilts.  Best Christmas gift ever!!!!

I finished up a baby quilt yesterday for Darren & Sandra to give to one of their friends who just had a baby.  I had the top finished ages ago, but it still needed to be quilted, bound and a label made and sewn on.  It will be given to the recipient tonight.

I completed a couple of knitting projects over the holidays, but I haven’t got around to blocking them yet, so I don’t have pictures. 

You might recall I was waiting for my orchid to bloom and it didn’t disappoint.  There are 4 gorgeous blooms on it and I hope they last a long time as 4 years was a long time to wait for the blooms!
