Happy 2012!

First, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  Our New Years Eve was nice and quiet.  Scott took me to Joann's for my annual New Year's Eve shopping spree.  I was very selective about my purchases since I already have a stash that most crazy quilters would die for!  I bought 6 - 1/4 yards of fabric.  3 Brocades which I absolutely love stitching on!  And 3 organzas with glitter.  Ya'll know how much I love my glitter!

I can't wait to have me a sewing day!  I also bought a couple packages of heart shaped buttons since I use a lot of them and then this cherry blossom garland to drape over the top of my Pink Garden Quilt:

I have this hanging in my living room over my electric sewing machine.

After Joann's, we went to WalMart.  Heaven help us!  It was a zoo yesterday!  But we wanted to pick the final 2 movies in the Harry Potter series so we bought them, came home and then watched Part 1.  Later today, Scott and I will know how things turn out with Harry and his friends.  No, I didn't read the books.  I do love to read but I love to stitch more and I can stitch and watch a movie at the same time.

Today, my mom and dad will come over for a few hours, we'll get some Chinese food and just take it easy.  Mom and I are going to work up a simple plan for our Boutique.  Basically, what we want to make and when we need to have it done by.  We've basically decided that we want to do more needlework and sewing and less in the way of craft things.  Needlework is our specialty so we're going to focus on that.

Yesterday, I forgot to share a close up photo of the seam treatments on my last Valentine Cat Doll:

The top border is worked with my Waste Canvas technique and the bottom border is worked with Carol Samples templates.  Click here for more Crazy Quilt Seam Treatment Inspiration.

Finally for today, I thought you would enjoy seeing this picture of my Lucy:

I took this on Friday when my cousin Kim was here.  She laid her coat in the chair and Lucy made herself quite comfy cozy in it!  Oh, to be a cat and live with me!!!

Have a very Happy 2012 everyone!

I love Harry Potter, and received the last movie for Christmas. We had fun this weekend watching both part 1 and part 2.

But the books are worth the 'read' because they are so much more rich and detailed. If you get the chance, listen to the audio version while you're stitching! Jim Dale is the vocal artist and does a tremendous job. His voice for each character is distinct and adds to the pure enjoyment of these audio books.

Happy New Year to you, your Bubba, your mom and sister. I love reading about your family.

The kitty looks like she's snuggling in a giant rose blossom! :-)

I don't believe there is such a thing as too much crazy quilting stash! Of course our husbands might debate that particular point. Lucy looks so content and the red coat is a perfect colour for her.
