New ideas, New Year

Did you all have a good Christmas? I do hope so. Me, Jim and our dogs had
a quiet Christmas but it was a good thing as with my MS I needed just lots of
sleep and that is what I definitely did..... sleep a lot!!
Quite of few of you may have thought I hibernated somewhere.... only to my bed.
It was time to get the sewing machine out after a long holiday hiding in the cat
room (the machine Ive called Zola) that is. Theres a quilting magazine that I buy called FABRICATIONS MAGAZINE and the front cover really pulled me wanting to make me pull my finger out and have a go. the quilt design is called New York Garden by Anja Townrow. I had never ever done foundation paper piecing before so this was quite a challenge. The first little block was a disaster and the second block was much better
once I got into the rhythm where the fabric pieces went, it was all fun and challenging. I will let you know how I get on.
