Finally, we've unpacked and organized enough so that I can begin to quilt in earnest once again. My granddaughter and I did a quilt project for her on the Underground Railroad so with everything out, I started on a quilt for her to celebrate her trip to England last year with her dance troupe. That quilt is almost finished, just the borders left to add. I finished baby quilt except the binding and that will be done tomorrow as the baby girl has arrived. The Wm. Morris blocks are resurrected and I still like them, surprise, and I'll do a few each week this month. It's a start after great turmoil in the fabric area of my house. I also completed a Lorax quilt and have one more to go (just the tops, haven't thought about how to quilt them yet.

Well my blog has caused all sorts of consternation in the family. We are sorting it out, but it takes FOREVER. I can at least report that on my 2012 list, I finished a French General quilt for my granddaughter who is bilingual;Happy Boots for my six-year-old granddaughter, and three others quilt were finished and delivered. Now for 2013: we moved, I'm behind and just today am starting to cut out my first quilt of the New Year. I'm making a cat quilt and I am not a cat person. However, we lost our dog this year and I made two dog quilts for the vets room where you go to say goodby to your pet. They needed a cat quilt too so I promised them when I left town that one would be on it's way. A sad, but satisfying, way to start back into working again. After that, I'm going to head into the purples for a grandaughter Number One as she is having her room redecorated. The the family wants a "giant" quilt to cover up at hockey games. That will get started but not high on list so will be readyfor fall. And I'll continue with my quilt which always gets put on hold--William Morris. That should keep me going through February when I'll be more organized--we all hope. PLUS I should have pictures then.

Aren't son-in-laws just wonderful! I now have my blogspot up and running thanks to his quick work and great skill with the computer, something I lack. I can now report to the people who did write that yes, I know I had my 2012 list up. Did you notice that some items also made the 2013 list, and that may continue. However, I am happy to report that about half those quilts were made and delivered, all finished. I find the one I want to make for myself i.e. William Morris just gets a block or two every few months. Because of our move which was and is endless, I am miles behind. Therefore buying fabric should cease, it hasn't. I did contribute about half my books to my Guild and some of my fabric is going to be in a garage sale in the spring or passed on to someone who will love it. So, Happy New Year/New Post.
