Off to a good start

We're just about finished taking down the holiday decorations and settling into quiet wintertime. This is a photo from New Year's Eve -- the torchlight parade at our local ski slope, reeeeally pretty to see in the dark, cold, still night!

I spent a little time in my sewing room today. Got the first block of the year pieced for Friday Block Party. It's called Wheel of Time, a nice choice for New Year's week. It'll be used with my other green and tan 12" blocks.

I'm also up and running with my B-a-D 2010 project!

You are off to a good start for the New Year! It is great that you are settled in to your new home and community and getting back into your normal routines that make up life! Cheers! Evelyn

This set looks very Irish-y!

Way to start off the new year.

Torchlight parade? Is it a huge line of people? Pretty cool.

Great blocks!
I have tried to sign up for the block party but can't figure it out...not very computer savvy!
I enjoyed reading about your goals for this year.

Wow! What a great start to a new year! I love your FBP block! And the B-a-D blocks look very interesting. I have been feeling a bit under the weather - sinuses and head aches. But now you have inspired me! I must get to my sewing room and do some creating. Thanks!
