Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and your family!
I hope you have a safe and happy holiday and a wonderful start to 2012!
I’ve been hiding out in my quilting castle, finishing up projects and hoping to start the New Year working on new designs.  The following pictures are not the best – I’m a terrible photographer using my cell phone!  But these will give you a little taste of my finishes this past week!
And here is what I’m still in the middle of working on!
Lot’s and lots of scraps have been used up, yet I still feel that I’ve not made a dent in my large scrap basket.  Oh well, it sure is fun digging through it all!
For those of you that have not been to our website the past month, please take the time to stop by when you have a moment.  We are having our end of the year cleaning out sale and all fabrics are on sale!
Enjoy!
P.S. – for those of you that are curious and waiting for an update on my hands after my carpal tunnel surgeries (thank you so kindly for the emails!)  My hands are almost back to 100%.  I still have a bit of scar tissue I’m working to loosen up, they still itch a bit around the scar and are hardly ever bothersome now.  I’m done with physical therapy, but continue strengthening exercises and massage at home. My scars look great!
