Happy New Year !!!!

Happy 2014 to you all, We had a nice evening of tv, laughing, some drinking and the kids welcomed in 2014 and then headed off to bed.

Here's my 2013 mosaic
I couldn't get everything in, but in brief :-
10 complete quilt tops
2 flimsy quilt tops
3 cushions
13 or more bee blocks
5 bags which included 2 aeroplanes
lots of bits for patchwork club, errant blocks, couple of wall hangings or bits just to leave around house.

Not too shabby I think you'll agree.

2013 wasn't a great year for us, I had lots of problems with my back and even though nothing dramatic happened, anything that could happen to derail plans seemed to, car problems, building, bike, job etc etc... so here's to a better 2014 :)

I'm planning on getting my flimsy quilts quilted, I have 2 ready to quilt, one that will be a flimsy in January, the Siblings together quilt to get to a flimsy.  I want to try and use up some stash, dh said not to go on a fabric diet but I'm thinking, I'm going to buy a yard of fabric for every kilo I lose, I'm going to reassess in June lol...
2014 will be my bag year, I've ordered lots of bits and with Sew Sweetness's book and her bag club I'm going to have some fun.
No plans for FQR this year (at the moment) as family life needs to take preference and that will hopefully involve dragbike racing, but you never do know.  Here's to a healthier (diet starts tomorrow) happier and prosperous 2014
