I am ready

For January.......
I finished my little snowman quilt.  The pattern is in the book "Count on it" by Nancy Halvorsen.  There are 12+ cute mini quilts in the book, and they seem quick and fun to make! ( At least this first one was!)

The boys were away for a ski race today, so I got a bit more sewing done.  Ola was in desperate need of a new pencilcase for school, so I made him this one using fabric with skiers and lots of snow :-)  Now with a new pencil case I might have to get him some new pencils and cool supplies to go in it....

And I dug out these blocks, I made four a couple of months ago, and I still need 16 for the quilt.... I guess I should focus on this next....
Tomorrow we're going up to the cabin to celebrate New Years with my parents, my aunt and uncle and a cousin.  I love New Years up there, nice and quiet, with family and great food.
Hope your New Years Eve will be great!

Happy New Year everyone!
Thank you for stopping by!
