I hope your year goes well, with the ups higher than the downs are low, with dreams fulfilled and warm, loving people surrounding you.
Clamshells: mostly unchanged since my last update - shameful. Will get back into it once my Clammy Mojo returns!
Hexagons: Some progress this year - 3 completed "flowers," one mostly done, 3 to go. It's more work than it appears at first - that last round on each finished flower is 60 hexies!
And this year's "stock" handmade ornament - from Sarah's tutorial last year. Note to self: stop agonizing, pick ONE pattern, and start earlier next year! These were given out as fast as I could finish them. They are very lovely but take lots of time, so start in September or October if you want to make these in bulk! I made several more that did not get photographed but you get the idea ...
I already have several Must-Do's for 2012 but am going to make an effort to be more restrained about leaping into every online quiltalong just because I adore the outcome. I need to finish some of my ever-growing stack of UFOs, many of which are the direct result of the aforementioned weakness!
Having said all that, I'm enrolled to take a class with Jackie to make Judy Niemeyer's Total Eclipse quilt, and I'm totally stoked! Thanks Hubby, what a wonderful present - it's a wise man who buys his wife the exact gift she suggests. I'm drooling over batik-y goodness and dreamily visualizing the outcome. Hope you have something yummy to dream about as we start yet another year.
