Happy New Year...

Happy New Year! I hope that your holidays were wonderful! I took a much needed break from work and blogging to get myself a bit re centered for the New Year! 

My December was pretty busy with work and I didn't take much time off to keep up with my customer's needs for Plumbing Parts. My son and I hung out at home for New Year's eve. We ate some junk food and I fell asleep around ten o'clock. I made a pork roast and some black eyed peas for New Years Day and shared them with my neighbors across the hall.

I didn't do a lot of sewing over the holidays. I mainly ate, spent time with my son and the dog and slept. The projects that I did complete are below.

The fabric basket is for a friend on Flickr in the Munki in the Middle Bee. I love making fabric baskets and this one is delicious! The two pictures are of the front and back of the basket.
 
The next two photos are of blocks for the Strip Quilter's Bee on Flickr. The row created is for my friend Mary who is a quilter that I am in awe of. It will be so exciting to mail this off to her because my row finishes her quilt top! I love the creation of negative space in with the solid black!
 
Mary will also receive a really cute fabric basket to use as a thread catcher in her sewing room! The little panda is Sew adorable!
The post for the 2014 Birthday Club will go up tonight. The parameters have changed a bit due to the International mailing rates spiraling out of control. Wishing you a fantastic week number two in 2014! Have a Happy Sunday and Happy Quilting!

So glad your holidays were enjoyed. We had fun here too! I have one of your beautiful baskets and enjoy the talent and heart you put into it. The strip of quilt blocks is really beautiful and unique. She is a lucky lady. Happy New Years!

Your baskets are so cute and I love the pink/black combination.

The baskets are adorable. I have a 1963 VW bug that we made into a truck, way back in the early '70's for my grandfather's retirement, so, I love any vintage VW.
