Last Day of the Year

Bhu is ending 2011 A.D. in much the same way he started it: sleeping in a sunny spot. "Vitamin D is good fur U!" How true, and I was lucky enough to get some of it myself. First, I did laundry and hung it up outside because it is in the 60's today. Then I put out more bird seed and found a new place for the suet feeders. We went to the library, to the natural food store for coffee, and to the Goodwill and bought two new dishes for your Fancy Feast, Bhu. Then, I worked on this project -- the last of the year!
I love using the tiny little scraps that are leftover from the quilt projects so I decided to make a cover for my little sketch book. I love the 30's fabrics; they are so colorful and cheerful, much like the "modern" fabrics.
Some of the quilting/sewing bloggers are posting "restrospectives" featuring the projects completed during the year. Probably, if I had "planned," I would have tagged all the posts with quilts and sewing projects. But I didn't. Maybe I'll do that from now on. Or maybe I'll just wait until next year. xxoo Patty

Bhu has the right idea! Lovely sketch book cover. It is fun to put together scraps and make useful things!
I will not be linking to all of my quilt poss, either. I would rather be quilting!

Happy New Year and wishing you a prosperous, Healthy 2012!

Happy new year! We're impressed with your quilting, since our mom can't sew a stitch. :-)

Wishing you much laughter and love in 2012!

Mum forgot to mention that Poppa picked up a wooden mortar and pestle, but now we don't know if we could actually use the item since the wood isn't lacquered on the inside! It was a deal for a dollar, but it would be better if it could be used!
