Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends!  

I hope you were able to enjoy your Christmas with family and are having as good and relaxing a start to the New Year as I am.  I am still struggling with the remnants of a nasty cold and a cough that won't let me be...but I was able to finish the binding on my last quilt finish for 2015...
 I used my favorite organic straight line quilting in a light aurifil grey and it gave some texture to the quilt while not detracting from the hand embroidered motif...yay!
 Here it is taking in our light dusting of snow this morning,
 A better close-up of one of the hand embroidered  "daisy" (I see it more as a black eyed susan) flowers...the pattern is from Mollie of Wild Olive.
This quilt is destined for a local hospital charity, I hope the bright colors and love sewn into this one brings comfort to a little one and their family.  I finished the quilt top way back in Sept 5 2011...once I decided not to hand quilt it, hehehehe.  True confessions, this is not my oldest WIP.

This quilt is a nice segue to the hop I have recently been lucky to join in on...see the button on my sidebar.

 Sew Incredibly Crazy
Lots of great talented ladies in this one, watch for me in August. Amy is the mastermind and will be starting us off next month.

So nice to finish a UFO and especially one that's so cute. Makes me think spring with those cute flowers. The lucky recipient will love it! Get well soon....must be an IN thing....I'm trying to read these blog posts through watery eyes and a drippy nose. Maybe we've paid our dues and won't be sick again this winter! Happy New Year!
