Happy New Year!

It is hard to believe that 2017 is almost over.
A good but also tough year that included moving back into our house after a 13 month remodel,  the release of my first book "Super Cute Paper Piecing" and the crazy politics and terrible natural disasters that occurred in the United States.  

Here is to a less turbulent 2018.  Cheers!
Last year I chose the word "Listen" as my mantra for the year. 
I'm not sure if I did very well but I am trying to be a better listener : )
I'm not sure what this year's word will be.....
I can think of a million things to work on - patience, peace - the list is long!

I thought it would be fun to share some of the projects I completed over the year.
The photo above is my Best Nine (most liked) photos on Instagram.

They are mostly images from my book : )

I also made a collage of all the projects in my book as well as some
new projects I made from my book.

The top row pictures are all new items I made in the past month.

From Left to Right:

1)   Umbrella pouch using the Vintage Apron Zip Pouch Pattern and the Umbrella paper piecing         pattern from Super Cute Paper Piecing.

2)   Daisy Pincushion using the Daisy Bowl pattern from Super Cute Paper Piecing.
      Tutorial for the pincushion can be found [HERE]

3)   Vintage Dresses Pattern from Super Cute Paper Piecing.

4)   Macaroon Pouch using the Strawberries pattern from Super Cute Paper Piecing.

I have spent most of my day cleaning my sewing room - it feels good - like a fresh start!
This little corner makes me very happy : )

Happy Sewing!
