Happy New Year

I’ve finally done some things in the sewing world to blog about! In the first picture you’ll see I had “help” finishing my third quilt, another charity quilt. This is Casper, one of my two cats.

Here’s the fourth quilt, another charity quilt (do you see a theme?) with some quilting started in the borders.

Last, I received a thread catcher from a gift exchange at work and doesn’t it look cheerful? Much better than the plastic bags I taped up with blue painters tape. Of course the sewing desk is much less cluttered than it usually is since I cleaned it up for the picture 🙂
