Fireworks, Free Projects & Other Dreams

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.
I had a couple of pictures to share today of a tuffet/door hanger with matching Friendship Bag
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!

Pretty much on the oxy moron front. Happy New Year, I can't wait to see my first project of 2010!

Sinta, I REALLY have learned patience the last few days with a new computer. I do NOT like getting a new computer, whatsoever. Transferring "stuff" is so slow and I'm no computer wizard, that's for sure.

BUT - hey - I'm learning........but VERY slowly.

thank you for all your wonderful links. I'm going through some of them at this time.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year to you and I wish for you that you will be able to see beautiful fireworks in Paris one day!
Thank you for all the lovely links, but won't have a look for a while. First I need to get organized with all my unfinished projects from 2010 *LOL*
Looking forward to the Schnibbles Parade! Hope your camera will be kind to you ;o)

Oh I have been to Paris and yes it would be so fun to be there on New Years Eve for the fireworks! I can wait to start my new quilt projects for the new year.

Happy New Year!
