Happy New Year!

Sometimes it's the little things in life that make me so happy.
My dining room being totally clear of anything because...
We just had new windows installed and the furniture had to be removed!

I didn't plan all that open space....
I was sure happy to have it today!!!
In a couple of days These houses will be on their way to their new homes.

I'll wait...
just in case we have some stragglers.

Here's the last couple of bee blocks for the year.
Christmas trees for Tammy.

I'm hoping that 2011 brings a lot more quilting adventures!!
I love adventure!
Especially when it involves a needle and thread!!!
And fabric...of course!

  20. Beth, My heart skipped a beat as I saw the post and to think this gathering started because of one wonderful lady who had an idea to CELEBRATE!!!! Thank you and how fun for me to see houses that my peers have made and posted on their blogs before sending to you. I feel a real connection as I did when we were celebrating Tonya's bood debut. Thank you and I have 2 to mail today. My po wasn't open and work has been crazy. If they don't make in time, keep them as a souvenier of my gratitude. Love, Em
