hello, 2012!

well, i made a few resolutions this year. one is to keep up with this blog a little more! it's been pretty hard to fit computer time into my new schedule of hanging out with my dog and watching every bbc miniseries... i mean, sewing all day! that's what i'm doing!

i have been trying to get caught up on all my outstanding bee blocks. these are for the 4x5 modern quilt bee on flickr. these have been lots of fun to make!

and this is a farmer's wife block, my first! it's from the fantastic book, the farmer's wife sampler quilt. the patterns seemed so over the top and out of my comfort zone, but this one actually came together quite easily! granted, it's one of the most simple. but i'm glad i didn't get too intimidated for too long. only bought the book about six months ago... heh. it took a little while to get up the courage to get started.

well, here's to 2012 being a great year! i have lots of fun stuff in the works to share with you guys. i can't wait!

i really love the fabrics you used for the farmer's wife block. that was something i wanted to start in 2011, but just couldn't fit it in. don't know if i can do it this year, either. oh well. :)

i know the feeling, kelly! but once i started i couldn't stop! jenn, maria and i are doing 4 blocks a month. the first four actually went really quick, but they get a lot harder as they go on. we'll see how long i keep up the momentum!
