New Year. New Beginnings.

Goodbye 2010! Hello 2011! For the first time since I was a teen, I welcomed the new year in AWAKE with friends and family. We had a BBQ at our place followed by a couple of rounds of boys vs girls cranium... very entertaining. Girls 1. Boys 1. Draw.

 All over blogger photo mosaics are popping up. It's been so fun looking through everyones blog posts and seeing what they created in 2010 - some people sure are busy and creative! It got me thinking about my own year of sewing. I had more finishes than I realised! 8 finished cot quilts, a doll quilt, bee blocks, a table runner... and a number of started but yet to be finished projects!  Looking back through our photo gallery, I realised that I started out the year on a high, hibernated for the winter and finished the year with a few Christmas gifts. Here's a few of my sewing highlights for the year...

Wonderland jelly roll

Asher's quilt

Hushabye doll quilt

Hexagon swap

Gus' winter I Spy quilt

Easter quilt

Wee Play quilt

So what will 2011 bring? A new city - we're moving to Auckland next month! Hopefully our first home, definitely more sewing and a lot of loving these two...
