My dream is to someday be in Paris for New Year's and see the fireworks going off above the Eiffel Tower, while I view it all from a boat. But in the mean time... I am sending you fireworks from Bass Lake and wishing you a new year filled with hopes, dreams, wonderful surprises
and all those things that you hold dear to your heart- that keep you happy!
If you happen to be looking for some new and fun projects:
here are a few that you can download from Lecien Fabrics website. The one above is called Mann Creek by Jennifer Davis. She has a great blog called Sweet Liberty. I really like this pattern!
This one is also a free pattern at Lecien by Joe Wood. He is an amazingly talented guy... with an amazing wife & a quilt shop called Timble Creek!
This is a great store where you will find many
talented designers who make it their home:
Anne Sutton/Bunny Hill, Joanna of Fig Tree & Co., Sandy Klop (American Jane), the adorable Laura Nownes and her partner Diana McClun who do the Asilomar Retreats
and from Me To You patterns;
Denise Sheenan of a Graceful Stitch and Verna Mosquera, A Vintage Spool.
Oh, and Elizabeth of Late Bloomer Quilts and Pam Kitty Morning
also teach there... AND alsohave free patterns on the Lecien site!
Another pattern you will find at Lecien is this one by Brenda Riddle of Acorn Quilt Co.
It features Brenda's cute new fabric line Celebration.
and another pincushion, "Abbey Bag". But my computer is not "recognizing my camera". *g*
Patience... that's something I will put on my list to work on in 2010!
(is using the word "computer" and "patience" together one of those oxymoron kind of things???)
Happy New Year!
See you tomorrow for the Year of Schnibbles Parade!
