Cheers to a New Year

It's still a bit strange, to think that tonight is really the end of 2013. This year has contained many blessings, most notably my time studying abroad in France, but it was also my chance to explore sewing and quilting which have I grown to love even more.

I won't give away too much yet, but I'm very excited for several sewing things in the new year. Just a couple of them will be participating in the 2014 A Lovely Year of Finishes and the Fierce Quilter's Bee, created by several friends. I'll pull a few more fabrics, maybe some purples, but the pile below (with the clamshells for inspiration) will be my starting point for my first block in the bee. With any luck, I'll get to spend a wonderful first day of the new year relaxing and sewing.  

Cheers to you all, and may your new year be filled with joy and happiness.


  1. Ooh, I feel like this picture is a little brighter. Or maybe it's that I'm not on my phone! But I love your pull :) here's to a fantabulous new year!

    1. No don't worry, you're not seeing things and I messed with filters on IG trying to represent the fabric colors. I might add another purple and edit the green, but thank you for the confidence boost :)
