a wintry hello

 
Hello sweet friends and a very Happy New Year to you! 
I hope that your Christmas was wonderful and blessed. It was a quite Christmas and new year for us, but it was nice to just relax, and enjoy the holiday season. This past week I have been catching up on some projects and of course planning a few new ones.
I have only a couple more hexie flowers to go and then it will be on to adding all the white ones to join them, which I don't think will be my favorite part, but hopefully it will go a little quicker than the flowers. I am quite excited to have this quilt finished! 
I caught up on three of my blocks for Donna's quilt sampler, and I have only three more to go!
In the evenings I have been working on my ripple blanket which has been keeping me comfy and cozy. I am getting close to finishing which is good because I already have another blanket planned to start once I finish this one.
Some sweet vintage Vogart patterns arrived for Christmas and I can't wait to start stitching them for some new items in my shoppe!
And, there is nothing better than starting the new year with some pretty vintage fabrics to play with. I am working on a little quilted heart table topper for a gift this week and planning Valentine goodies for the shoppe. I look forward to visiting with you to see what you loveliness you are working on!
Wishing you a beautiful and crafty week!

  5. What cheery, spring colors! I can't wait to see the finished product. I also love your afghan. It reminds me of the one my great aunt gave me for our wedding shower 33 years ago. I still have it in the ever popular brown, orange and gold colors!

    Blessings

  15. Happy New Year!!! Everything is so lovely Heather, I love all your sweet things you're working on! Your quilt will be just gorgeous! I started a new crochet blanket (it's open to anyone who wants to join, its called a moodblanket, but I'm just doing pretty colors that I liked together, anyways you either do a granny square a week or everyday until next year and then you will have blanket at the end! I'm making two a week so I'll have 104 blocks at the end.) Can't wait to see Valentine goodies! xo Holly
