Another year is about to come to a close. 2008 has been good to me and my family.
Topping all the lists would be The Princess' return. While it was an adjustment for everyone in the beginning, it has been nothing but wonderful to have her in the same time zone once again.
Hubby filled my heart with love and laughter every day of the year.I enjoyed the garden . . . . silly squirrels excepted - all spring and summer long.
We continue to enjoy it's bounty now with a full freezer and pantry.All along the way there were quilts - a lot got started, a few got finished, all were enjoyed.
But in the end, it was really about the scraps. I knew at the beginning of the year that I had to organize and attempt to streamline my quilting supplies. The first step was attempt to tame the scrap basket.
I was exhausted and amazed when I finally found the bottom of the basket. You can read all about it here.
Still I would have never thought that from the contents of that basket I would find all of these quilts! Take a look for yourself.
All of those quilts came primarily from scraps. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. Still at the end of the year, I have an abundance of scraps that I can work with all through the year. That is some great news.
Wishing you all the best for a happy and prosperous New Year. And if for some reason life hands you scraps - find a way to make a quilt.
When you get an itch, scratch it!
