206: Ready for a new year to begin….
What’s that? It already did begin? Don’t I have 2 more weeks?……
This is the typical feeling I have this time of year. I hope to sit back, enjoy, reflect on the past, look to the future….and the year barrels on down the turnpike in front of me, pulling me by the selvage along with it. I still haven’t mailed out the prizes from my 200th post giveaway and the little one I had right after it….
I just finished up my 9th quilt for Free Spirit… and Micheal Miller just asked me to work on a quilt for this new collection. So it’s not like I need another project or something is it?? But I do have a quilt that I have drawn up but haven’t started sewing yet due for a magazine submission with this line. If you follow me on Twitter, which if you want REALLY current info on me that’s the place to be…I also dropped an elusive statement about an email I sent today that I may regret later, but now am pretty excited about….but nothing I can say anything for sure about….so let’s just leave it there as a teaser, ok??
There that is the “calm” January/February I always hope for…not very, is it? But it does keep me off the streets, so that is good I suppose.
Just in case you were wondering where you can get access to all my WONDERFUL-ICIOUS patterns….I added a “downloads” page here on the site, and now when I get new patterns online for you for FREE…(everyone loves Free don’t they??) you can come straight here and follow the links. Let me know if you have any trouble with them. I am by no means an expert on downloads/links/HTML/thewholenineyards, etc.
And just so this post isn’t completely boring here are the pictures you were waiting for…
This quilt was in Quick Quilts….yes, I am late telling everybody..sorry…I kept meaning to get it in here, and well December is just like that around here…you may still be able to get this issue if you try. looks like my quilt was out in the barn to me….it came back okay though!
It was a very fun quilt to design, and pretty easy to sew…just takes concentration to keep the chains organized…I really just love all the dots!!
Too cute!! Okay…hopefully I didn’t lose all my “man” points for the cute factor here…Maybe I should use the word “clever” instead….too clever!!
Okay so that is it for today. I actually have more to share, but it will have to wait until tomorrow or the weekend. I have another quilt out in a magazine that is either in the newstands or coming soon…
and if you were a winner last month…I am still working on getting those out…sorry it has taken me so long..I think I do better with one or two winners at a time…giving away 10 prizes in a week overwhelms me…the good news for you winners, is that I did some cleaning last weekend, and stuff more fabric in there…so your patience will pay off!!
thanks so much for stopping by, I really love it when you visit…drop a comment, so I know you were here…Love to hear how your new year is going!
Oh, and next Tuesday is my birthday….are you bringing cake??
