New Year's Day Sewing

They say what you do on New Year's Day will be what you do all year.  That mean's besides the everyday living stuff, I will continue to do what I love--torment my husband and sew.  He will continue to indulge me.  It works out well for both of us.

The top is now complete for Barrister's Block Sow-A-Long. The first finished top for 2013. I had all the border pieces cut and ready to sew on yesterday but instead spent the evening watching TV with Ernie and knitting.

Next on today's agenda is part 7 of Easy Street.  Oh, Miss Betty Blue, she sews like a dream.  I just have to remember that with no automatic needle up, she will come un-threaded if the take up arm is not up.

I'll be back later with more to report.

It's 5 pm and I'm tired.  It's time to put Miss Betty Blue to bed.
I've spent most of the afternoon working on part 7 of  Easy Street.

The corner triangles just need trimmed.

The big triangles are all layed out for easy piecing.
The top section is ready to sew to the 3 block section.
Have I said how much I love these colors?!?!

Here's hoping 2013 is good to all of us.

You are so funny! Thanks for the smile :)
Hope you have lots of time to torment the DH and to SEW to your hearts content!

A great finish and a great way to start the New Year!

This is the first year for me to work along on Bonnie's Mystery and keep up with it. That made setting January goals easy! I don't want it to go into the UFO pile. Glad your machine is working so well.
