Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to you all, and I hope you're not feeling too fragile.

It was so good to see the sun this morning after all the gloom.  I was struck by the light shining on the glittery twigs in the living room and the shadows on the wall.  A bit hard to photograph, but it did look pretty!


I've been pulling out some fabrics from my stash to add to my Christmas ones.  Always the best bit of making a quilt, I think, playing around with colours and ideas.  The vague plan is for larger pieces of the flowery ones and smaller pieces of the plainer fabrics, but I'm undecided on the design.



Thank you for all your lovely comments over the last year.  I love sharing bits of my world and discovering all sorts of interesting people out there in blog land.  
Here's hoping 2013 is a good one!

  5. Happy New Year! Your fabrics are lovely, and the sun shining in your window is very cheerful. We don't receive too much sun this time of year either. And I'm sorry you threw your back out :( But glad that you have recovered. Enjoy your day.

  15. Happy New Year, looking forward to seeing the quilt when its finished.
    My friend bought me a quilting book and some lovely floral quarters for Christmas so I think I'm going to have a go at doing some quilting but will start with something simple I think.
    Best wishes for 2013

  21. Looks great, it`s lots of fun getting to "bee a part of" a quilt from the start, and it ads some motivation to knowing that there are people out there wanting to see how it`s coming along. I`m kind of new to this creative bloging world and I so love it.
