I can’t let January slip by without writing a post, so here goes! Back in November, I blogged about a show that I participated in, at Ellington’s Music & Cafe. My “Not too Close for Comfort” quilt was chosenĀ as the image for the promotional poster, and guess what, I sold it! I definitely had mixed feelings when I had to surrender it to the buyer, but that’s the way it goes!

I promised I would reveal the Christmas gifts I was working on, and here they are. I made a reversible tote bag for the girlfriends of each of my two sons.

I love this pattern (Six Pack Stack Reversible Fat Quarter Tote) by Whistlepig Creek Productions. The instructions are easy to follow and it’s a nice size. The most difficult part is choosing coordinating fabrics!

I spent a few days in Ottawa visiting the boys and my Aunt over Christmas. Check out this crazy mosaic owl image that I discovered embedded in the sidewalk on Parliament Hill!

I have high hopes for this year – in all respects. I have been able to get out skating several times, and am still taking two yoga classes every week, as well as finding excuses to go walking and cycling. My goal is to get more active as I age, not less active!

As far as quilting goes, I am working on several projects at once, which I gather is rather typical of us fabric addicts! More on this in the next post!
