happy new year!

fractured no 2

Wish you all a safe, happy, healthy and creative 2014!

After a bit of quiet time on the blog it is now a good opportunity to take a little inventory of 2013, quilt wise. I think it is worth a celebration realizing that a nice sum of 12 lap quilts were finished last year. I have kept 7 for me:

red postage stamps
pezzy spiderweb

there's always two sides...

sea glass diamonds

cloud 9

something else in blue

and gifted 5 so far…

something else in brown

sunny

sweet harts

scrappy trips around the world

cool sixteen


Not bad!

; )

Hopefully there will be a few finishes waiting to happen here in 2014:
  • a few quilts that only needs binding, 
  • a few that are slowly being quilted by hand
  • and there's a few tops I would like turned into quilts as well..


May 2014 be a year of finishes!

It is also tempting to share new year resolutions this time of the year. A good one would be using more fabric from stash and do less shopping (unless it is for a special project, fabric that I adore and must add to my collection). There's some good ideas out in bloglandia like no fabric shopping for 6 months. No need for me to make that kind of commitment, yet. … Not yet

; ))

Planning on sharing some new projects as soon as I learn how to use my brand new camera. A very nice and timely christmas gift as my trusted old one has been out of working order for some time. Blogging and pictures goes together, don't  you think?

Godt nytt år Marit og G!
Utrolig mange flotte Quilter du tryller fram, alle som ett!
Jeg får utrolig lyst til å finne fram symaskinen når jeg ser bildene av alle disse flotte kunstverkene som du lager - men jeg tror jeg skal overlate det til dere som kan dette! Blir uansett utrolig inspirert!!
-kanskje du tilogmed selger noen? Det hadde vært noe :)

Hilse gemalen!
