Begining the New Year

Happy New Year to all!  I hope that this year will be a wonderful journey for you and your family in all you do,and for your love of quilting.  I started mine off cleaning the house with my husband wondering what had gotten into me.  I thought was this year I will try to keep the house clean and straightened up before spending hours quilting and blogging.  THEN... a Friend of mine called to ask if I wanted to go to Hancock Fabrics with her.  Now I couldn't leave a friend stranded by herself so I had to accompany her.  In answer to your question, YES I had to buy some fabric. Well so much of it was 50% off so I had to!

Now the bad part of starting the year off so far is that my camera I received for my birthday has decided to lock up on me.  I thought it was just kinda frozen as the last time I used it was taking pictures of our Christmas Day Snow.  Luckily my husband had purchased the extended warranty with it so on Monday I will take it back to Best Buy and see if they can fix it.  I sure do feel lost with out it.

Lauren, my daughter, gave me The Farmer's Wife sampler book for Christmas and so far I have made eight blocks.  My goal is to get all 111 completed by Christmas 2011. I would post pictures but my camera is broke!   I think I can do this as this is a project that when I want to work on something I can do one block in no time.  But I get the satisfaction of playing with fabric choosing colors, cutting out and sewing it together and the feeling of accomplishment!    I think I can do this! I think I can I think I can..... lol

What a novel idea! To clean and straighten up first! Maybe I should try that since I have discovered that the computer is a magnetized vortex that sucks me in! Good luck with your sampler...8 blocks already! I am sure you can!
