Happy New Year

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  I was busy throughout the entire holiday season.  I hosted Christmas dinner at my home so I had to clean and cook for the 25 or so guests prior to their arrival.  We had a fantastic time and I just hated for all the excitement to end.  I worked Tuesday through Friday and then spent New Year's eve at my niece's home and we line danced our way into the New Year.

For as quilting, I made a few more quilted wallets; that made the total of 33 wallets in less than a week.  I enjoyed making them and have a few in my stash for myself to use throughout the year.

In addition to the wallets, I made this quilt for my husband who watches television in his "man cave."  This should keep him plenty warm. This was a mystery quilt that's now for sell called Friends and Fellows.

I sewed the remainder of the drunkard's path blocks together from a previous project and then sewed them into this quilt top.  It's not very large so I will need more borders to get it to a decent size of lap or twin size quilt.  We'll have to see how this one plays out.



  1. Greetings Tea! So happy you and family had a great time. I'm always thinking about gaining a few extra pounds during the Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year's time.... luckily that didn't happen this time. Love your "man cave" quilt. The colors are striking!
    Here's to a great 2012 of sewing, good health and plenty laughter and retreating!!!

  2. Wish you and your family a very prosperous and happyness filled New Year


  3. Happy New Year, Tea! Love your Drunkard's Path!
