We welcomed in the New Year with these little guys.
My grandson's birthday is New Year's Eve and he asked Nana to make him some little boys that could play in his Lego buildings.
These fully posable little dolls range in size: 1 inch, one and a half inch and the tallest at just 2 inches. They are made from chenille stems, wooden beads,embroidery floss, wool roving for hair and wool felt for clothing. It was a nice little craft project for me to end the year with and my grandson is very pleased with how they turned out.
My New Year's resolution this year is to relax and savor the Journey!
One journey in particular that I'm excited about is continuing on with the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album sew along. It's a privilege to work with Dawn and The Virginia Quilt Museum as we share Esther Blair Matthew's historic quilt and story.
Just one block a month - a perfect project to relax and enjoy the rhythm of stitching!
Have you seen the block for January yet? It's called "Star in the East".
Dawns version (above) is a real beauty! To learn more about it and also see the original block click HERE.
Welcome to the Newcomers starting this month! That's the beauty of this Quilt Study and sew along. You can join in any time and work at your own pace.
Whether you are a Cheerleader or a Participant - all are welcome!
No big list of projects to formally announce for the year, but I do have a few Fun activities up my sleeve for 2016! Including a couple of free "Quick yet Classic" sew alongs that I will host. (you may want to dust off those jelly rolls on your shelf)
Wishing you all a very Productive, Creative, Healthy and Happy New Year!
every quilt tells a story....
