Happy New Year!

Wow, December always seems to fly bye doesn't it?  Everyone is busy creating things and keeping secrets! It is especially busy at our home with my birthday, Christmas and our wedding anniversary all within a 9 day period. This year my hubby and I celebrated our 20th!

So where were we....Oh, the winners for the giveaway. Art by Rhoda Forbes is our random winner! (Shoot me an email with your mailing address and I'll get your Michael Miller fabric out to you!)

The winner of the finished quilt top is GI Quilt. I didn't even have to pick a random number since it is the only quilt top finished and in flickr so far!

There was a lot happening in my sewing room this past week. I call it The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. But not necessarily in that order. (sorry for the cell phone pics)

First the ugly.
My disclaimer is that this is not how my sewing room usually looks.  I decided to purge and reorganize, and well, sometimes it has to get Ugly before it gets better!
 Ahh, much better! 
Then my hubby went back to work on January 2nd and was laid off!
He brought me meds:)

So we moved him in to the sewing room and this happened...



Then this...
Yes, they are multiplying, and yes, that is a half naked adult son.  (Be warned that half naked people lingering about will have their photograph taken.) There is no sewing going on and no room for me.
Problem solved - well sort of. We may switch our bedroom and the sewing room.  Our bedroom will be cramped, but our sewing room/home office will be big enough to accommodate any passers-by. 

Stay tuned...I have another exiting BOM coming!  I'm thinking it might be every other week, still sorting out the details. Be sure to grab any of the Hello Sun Blocks that you are missing - when the next free BOM goes up, the sun will be setting:)
