Happy New Year!

First, I'd like to take a moment to wish everyone a healthy, prosperous and happy New Year! May we all have loads and loads of stitching and sewing time!

I spent most of yesterday stitching on the pansy purse:

The white fabric that you see to the left is the excess foundation fabric. I fold it up and pin it so it doesn't get in my way.

Anyway, I've started the beading on this which is my favorite part of crazyquilting. The stitching is always fun and wonderful but the beads enhance the stitching and add light,depth and dimension to the project.

Tomorrow marks the start date of Sharon's "Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge". For those of who read Sharon's blog regularly, you probably already know that she's had tons of spam issues. If you don't read Sharon's blog on a regular basis, hop over and bookmark her alternate blog site which she set up just in case her regular blog goes down again.

As I've been mentioning over the past few weeks, I will be offering you the tutorial for making Dryer Sheet Pansies. I will publish Part 1 tomorrow.

Until then everyone, have a safe and Happy New Year!

What a great way to spend the end/start a year - with a day of stitching! This looks great, as I would expect. I love the colors. There's always so much to see on your pieces, I spend a lot of time looking at each one.
