Happy New Year Everyone

Well, what a year!   This is my year of discovering blogging.  I may have started my blog in October 2010 but 2011 was the year that I really learned the value of blogging and the immeasurable pleasure I would get from all the lovely bloggie friends I have made.  I credit the encouragement and support that I have received from a lot of you out there for what I have achieved this year.You kept me motivated to sew and to do more.    Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou!!!
Here is a look back at some of my favourite finishes from this year.

Bruce's quilt - so far he is doing well!!!

 Pot holders - these were just my favourites!
 Placemats for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge
 Soldier's laundry bags

 A baby quilt for Isaac
 A kris kringle gift
 a pin cushion challenge
 this year's Christmas Decoration

 and another christmas gift

Now I am looking forward to 2012 - lots more soldier quilts and laundry bags, more quilts to give away, maybe a monster quilt for Guitar Hero, more handmade bits for the Irish Charity Bazaar and who knows what else.

But most importantly I am looking forward to sharing next year with my lovely blogging and non-blogging friends!
