Happy New Year

I'm ready for the new year, are you?

This is my blank book that I plan to fill with some good stuff for next year.

Have a safe and happy NEW YEAR!

Another Naughty and Nice Gift

Yesterday was the annual Christmas party at work.

Tradition has it that we have a white elephant gift exchange at the party.  I have received hair scrunchies, one size fits all popcorn shirts, VHS tapes (not g, pg or r), and a tangled ball of Christmas lights, to name a few of the gifts over the years.  

Last year I made an apron for this gift exchange and it was such a hit
I made an encore.

If you are a regular here, you know I like to add a sense of humor to my projects every chance I can.

With thanks to Alexander Henry for the fun fabric
I've created the Naughty and Nice apron


A reversible apron with a ruffle of snow.
One side sweet and perfect for entertaining the family.
The other side, well, it is perfectly entertaining.

Here are the recipients of the Christmas aprons both this year and last.

They both prefer the naughty side.  lol

My apologies for the long absence.
Work has me very busy
this time of year.

I have been sewing 
 (between work and social engagements) 
and will be back to share soon.

Hope this finds you happy and healthy!

Choose You Own BlockAlong 12/1/14

I've made a little progress on 

My hope is to make the 
blocks in Tula Pink's City Sampler book, "100 Modern Quilt Blocks" 
starting with #1 and going in order to the end.

These blocks are addictive and fun.
I am keeping them scrappy 
organizing my scrappy mess as I make the blocks.

Here are my finished blocks for this week:

Looking at the pictures and the blocks I have made is such a thrill.
I am just storing the blocks in the book.
Each end of the book has a flap to keep your place and it just so handy to leave the 
blocks tucked into the book.

I'm not quite ready for the design wall.

Rene' has made some progress this week.

Did you find any great black Friday deals.

I did.
