First Finish of 2009

I purchased this little Jo Morton kit while I was up in Seattle last month visiting my sister. We went to Carriage Country Quilts where I participate in their JLW club by mail. What a FANTASTIC quilt shop. This pattern was from 2003 and it is in her newest book, Yesterday's Charm, named Cabin Corners pg. 52. It's not big but it was fun to sew up and I got it quilted, yippee!!

I finished this last month, it is block #2 with Farmhouse Woolens. I'm sure #3 is on the way. I love having a new little camera again.... no one is safe!
I surprised Steve and Gail with my nifty little friend at their New Years party we attended. They are neighbors and they held their 1st Soup Tasting party. It was wonderful. Eight different soups, Curry Squash, Beer Cheese, Indian Chicken Yogurt ( my #1), Mexican Tortilla, Broccoli, My DH made his favorite East Texas Chili. Most of the guys picked the chili as #1, it is good. I am forgetting one but they were good and it was a very fun format for a gathering. Sorry I didn't get pictures of the soups I promise to do better next time!

I joined Colleen with Crazy for Primitive Quilts and Gardens in her challenge. I said I would finish one block from each BOM I have started so I have 3 to go this month to keep up the challenge. The new year and her challenge are just the incentive I need to get going on my laid aside projects. I really still love them so it will be enjoyable to be working on them again.

Is it me or does it seem brighter outside to you, I just love January, the days start to get longer and spring is just around the corner!!! Well almost, just around the corner LOL.... It really makes me happy to think of it as just around the corner anyway.....

New Blessings to each of you!

Your block (BOM) from Farmhouse Woolens is wonderful. I wish I had signed up for it. I found out about it too late.
