Starting A New Year

Yup, this little girl is now one year older.

Wednesday was a delightful day for me. It began with DH presenting me with this gorgeous bouquet of flowers:

DD and her family picked out a new jigsaw puzzle for me to do and I have a new book to explore courtesy of my sister:

I also have a new quilt to make. One of my sisters-in-law sent me these:

A treasure map panel from Hoffman Fabrics and co-ordinating fat quarters!

Does that say "little boy" or what?! Too bad I don't have a grandson on the way ;- )

Not to worry ~ I'm in no hurry for more grandchildren. And who knows how long it will be before I get these made up into a quilt anyway! Still, they will be fun to play with. When I finished up the postcard for June's TIF challenge I found myself looking at my stash, thinking about using up some of the older prints finally. I really have to do something to make room for the new fabrics that seem to keep showing up in spite of my efforts to resist them!

Happy Birthday Sue! May you have a wonderful year and a whole lot more.

That fabric is fantastic as is the Farm For Sale fabric. I'm always amazed at what you do with parts and pieces. Very clever.
