Happy New Year

"They" say that whatever you do on January 1, that is what you will do all year. This is going to be a very fun year!!! I got up early, sewed for a couple hours until Ernie and Taylor got up. We stayed up last night---way too late for me! But she wanted to see in the new year and it was fun.

It was just a lazy kind of day for the most part. We fixed an early dinner and after dishes, settled in to watch a movie...until Little Mr Louie came in and demanded to have a bath-stinky little dog! During doggie bath time, Taylor was reading a quilt book and found a little wall hanging she wanted to make. I gave her a bag of scraps and told her to pick out her fabrics.

While we were deciding which paper pieced flowers to sew, I had a brainstorm! (Yeah, we are hoping to have lots of those this year!!) I remembered a wall hanging I saw on the Accuquilt site, showed her and off we went--fusing and cutting, planning and plotting. We had to lay some things around so she could see what it would look like. I can't wait to see how she decides to finish it tomorrow.

But now it's bedtime........hopefully she will be up before noon tomorrow.

Granddaughters can be so much fun! Well if what you do on New Years Day predicts the rest of the year. I will be in my sewing room quite a bit and the house will be filled with people. Keep 2011 Stress Free!

What a fun way to start the new year! I spent mine sewing for part of the day, and at work, for 3-11 for the rest.
