I'm just so darned happy! Why, you ask. Because I have finished my first project in the new year. Perhaps it was not such a feat, but it counts as a finish to be sure.
This little baby languished as blocks in the bottom of a basket for over a year. Finally I got it assembled into a top only to make it wait more than month before some simple hand quilting and a binding. I have to say it was worth the wait.
I also have a finish from the old year that I haven't yet shared.
Just before The Princess arrived, I put the last stitches in Christmas Punch, the quilt that Marcie so generously designed and offered on her website. I took some liberties with the border to make it my own. I love that it doesn't scream HoHoHo. Wouldn't it be darling come spring with a bowl of strawberries? Thank you, Marcie. I've got a complete set of her free Christmas designs. I hope she does another in 2010.
I've been taking pictures of things that strike my fancy as I've been out and about exploring. They don't really seem to fall into any blog-worthy category, still I'd like to share them. I've selected two today that were taken while we were sightseeing with The Princess.
The first if from our day at Old Sturbridge Village. We had a great time. It was snowing lightly and there were so few people there it seemed that we had the place to ourselves. This is a close up of some ice and mossy stuff on a fence railing.
Not half bad for a cell phone picture.
The second random offering came from a stop to take pictures at a water spillway. We parked near a cemetery that I drive by regularly. This was the first time I ever noticed the sign.
Seems a little obvious, don't you think? Well, I'm off to take Harper for a walk. With camera in hand, there's no telling what random pictures I'll have for next time. I'm hoping to spot some icicles.
When you get an itch, scratch it!
