Happy New Year!

Spending a very exciting New Year's Eve here in my recliner! 
I have been reviewing photos from 2010 and reflecting on my quilting adventures. 
I spent way too much time tonight making this photo collage of some of the quilts I worked on this year. Picasa is definately not a "user friendly" program! However I was successful in finally producing this photo summary.
I hope that 2011 will bring some great new quilt projects, but mostly I hope to finish lots of golden oldie quilt projects. I plan to organize my fabric and especially my scrap bins, and hope to make a significant dent in the pile! To that end, I have joined 2 groups...Judy's UFO challenge (see my list here) and Angela's rainbow scrap challenge. The first colour of scraps we'll tackle is blue, so I'll be digging around in the blue scraps this week. Blue is a colour I haven't used as much in the past couple of years,  and thinking about blue reminded me of one of my very old UFO's which is blue...I'll see if I can dig that one out.
Two of the quilt highlights for me in 2011 will be my annual quilt retreat in February, and attending the Vermont Quilt Festival in June with some quilting friends...can't wait!
I was able to do some sewing this afternoon and will post sometime over the weekend what I have been working on. My sister came by to sew for a bit, and I got her to pull the winner's name for this little Christmas package from me. Drum roll please....there were 24 names, and the winner is... Candace!
I send each of you my best wishes for health and happiness, and hope that you will have fabulous quilt adventures in 2011!

What a great collage. I agree that Picasa is hard to use. I think it is just smarter than us! What a great collection of quilts.

You completed some great quilts this year. I love your photo refresher and I can recall many of them from your posts during the year. Great job and keep up the busy work. I look forward to reading about your 2011 quilts. Happy New year.
