Looking forward

Happy New Year!!
We spent a quiet night watching the Tarheels and Tyler Hasbrough beat Nevada. Always a great night when the Tarheels win which is often this year.
I noticed a lot of bloggers were looking back at what they had done in 2008. I found a few that I enjoyed making last year. Two were baby quilts that I made for friends of my daughter. I loved the color combinations.










The girl I made this one for called her baby "lady bug" and there are lady bugs in the print I used.






















The other one was one I made for our church sale. I followed a pattern in a book I found for this one. That is the only time I have ever done that. It was an interesting exercise.











I am looking forward to our new president and I hope he will be able to move this country forward in a positive way. I am looking forward to our new grandson due at the beginning of February. I am looking forward to making arrangements to bring my mother back to her house in a couple of months. And most of all I am looking forward to spending as much time as possible in my quilting room.
I wish all you quilting bloggers and readers a wonderful 2009. I have really enjoyed blogging although life has kept me from blogging as much the last month as I would like. This is a great community to be a part of.

love the pnk and yellow together in the baby quilt -- very very effective at being cheerful without being loud.

Have a blessed new year.
