With the beginning of a new year

.....comes a time to reflect.
In 2012 I finished 10 quilts
and I have 5 flimsies in the  "to be quilted" pile.
I have also made many other fun things along the way, with these being just a few.
But what will the year ahead hold?
I have plans on starting some new things
but might share them as I am ready to start them.
Actually do you have the "Girls Day Out" pattern / Kit
in your Stash? 
I have had one sitting in the back of the cupboard for a few years
and Shez has one too. We are planning on working on them in 2013.
Do you want to come and sew with us?
No time line. Very relaxed and
guaranteed support and encouragement if you want
to come and play :o)
Also in 2013 I am looking forward to spending time with Friends.
and I am sure there will be a few swaps thrown in for fun :o)
Most importantly, I look forward to the treasured times with Family,
especially these four :o)
I hope that the new year brings to you all that you wish for.

hugs, Sharon xx
