I didn't even have to go buy anything, I found everything that I needed in my stash. Hopefully, I can be that lucky each month. One of the leaves is a little off, but I had already taken it off three times, and decided that it added character.

I also finished another project. Some time last year I started a baby quilt, I think it was when I was recovering from my surgery. I had put it aside when I felt better. The only thing I needed to do was sew the borders on, which I managed to do yesterday. I actually bought this fabric about five years ago, on my first trip to Mary Jo's.
After sewing part of the day, I decided to watch a movie. For Christmas, my niece gave the whole series of "The Thin Man" movies. I love old movies. If you aren't familiar with them it is Myrna Loy and William Powell. They play a married detective couple. Very 1930's. They don't even sleep in the same bed. Boy have movies changed.

The kit was provided by Bad Melissa at Sweet Home. I fell in love with the fabrics that were used in the kit. The fabrics are very similar to the ones shown on the pattern. I love anything that has red in it, but this is my first red, blue and gold quilt. I got all of the pieces cut last night, and many of the strips sew together. Since I am out of school on Monday for MLK day I plan on working on it some more. I don't want this one to end up in my UFO stack.

I am so hoping that 2009 is a better year for me and my family. 2008 was about the worst ever. I am really looking forward to starting a new year, at work, at home, and at school. Yes, I am heading back to school. I start tomorrow night, working on my specialist degree in Library Media. I have talked about it for a couple of years and kept putting it off. I decided if I was ever going to do it now was the time. It was been a little over 10 years since I was in school I know this will be an adjustment. But it isn't keeping me from making New Year's Resolutions. There are three resolutions that I have made: finish one already started project a month, try one new recipe a week, and have as much fun as I possibly can. I will keep you updated on my progress.
How many of you made resolutions or goals? I would love to hear about them.
