So Long 2010

Just a few highlights from 2010!
Our sweet, sweet niece was born! Sydney is the answer to years of prayers!! We love her so much! It is a joy to watch her parents love this girl!

I became an drug of choice...embroidery!

My first embroidery! I have worked hard with my stitching and hope to do more in 2011. Anybody want an embroidered pillowcase??

I worked with my Mother-in-law to make this quilt for baby Sydney. Such a special project for me.

I finished this quilt last summer. Probably one of my favorites. Kelsey took it with her for her second year of college. I plan on making her another one this summer. I think it's a nice way for her to have a little bit of home while she is, to make sure "boyfriend" stays far far away from it!!!!

I wish everyone a safe, healthy Happy New Year!

Is that really your first embroidery? It is gorgeous. I tried some this year too. Now I am in to this dish cloth crocheting!!! But I still want to learn embroidery. Any tips? The quilt is gorgeous too and the baby quilt too. And those 2 precious little ones! Loved seeing it all. Happy New Year!

Sounds like you had a successful year! I do love your star quilt, love those fabics in it! Your embroidery turned out very nicely too. I have some embroidery kits....somewhere! :) Maybe I will find them someday when I have to pack everything up to move in the new house.
