Keeping those resolutions

One of my non-quilting resolutions for 2011 was to make time for and connect with my friends.  {Last year I heard some complaints about me being anti social....of course, most of those came from my friends who don't sew!} Yesterday, I got to work on that goal by having coffee with a friend and lunch with another friend.  It definitely was a Wonderful Wednesday!!!  This morning I have another coffee date and tomorrow I have plans to meet two friends for lunch.  Who knew I was so popular?! back to our regularly scheduled program ;-)

I forgot to show this scarf I made as a Christmas gift.  The plaid fabric is from my daughter's old uniform skirt, is pieced with solids and back in red flannel.  Paired with gloves and a winter hat it makes a nice teacher's gift.

I need to get to work on my patriotic string blocks.  The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild is collecting these for a charity quilt.  As you can see, some of our members have already made theirs.

I've been giving some thought as to what I should make with these solids Robert Kaufman donated to our guild for a challenge and am getting closer to coming up with an idea....I think.

Future blocks for a future quilt thanks to more play time with my AccuQuilt Go toy!

This cute house block arrived in my mailbox from Beth.   Thanks Beth for being such a good neighbor!

Now to get back to my quilting resolutions ;-)


  1. What fun things are going on at your house...connecting with awesome! About 8 years ago, three of my closest friends either moved, got jobs and went back to school or had a "falling out" over her child's behavior.

    Devestating for me. To "lose" my stay at home, close to home buds. I envy you the closeness of your friends. Enjoy!

  2. You are so creative. I am sure the teachers loved getting such an original gift. Plus you are "upcycling."
