Happy New Year!

It's nice to start a new year whith a new project, I think. I've been doing some cutting and sewing today. I started on a new project from a book that arrived during the Holidays. It's a quilt called "Pie in the sky" from Kim Diehl's new book "Simple graces". I just love this quilt. Scrappy, and I love that!
I thought I would make it in reproduction fabrics, but found out I don't have too many different shades of colors in my stash. I started pulling out scraps of japanese fabrics instead, so this will be a stashbuster in the end :o)

Only one block is done so far:

I'm working slow today, since I'm trying to do some cleaning in my sewing room too. And I'm also knitting in between, so a little bit of this and a little bit of that... you know...

Tomorrow it's back to work again, and I'm looking forward to get back to the normal routines again. The kids have been turning the hours around a bit too, so I think two weeks off school is really enough... Back in business for us all tomorrow.

Wish you a great new and creative week,

Hi Laila,
you used your last day off good, the block looks good and I wonder what you are knitting?
Have a nice first work week in 2012
