Close, but no flimsy!

Happy new year to you all! Despite the best laid sewing plans (read grandiose ideas!) I did not get too far with these blocks. Finished a couple more, but I chose to chat with friends I seldom see and walk with DH and the dog to watch the fireworks over the city...good for the soul ( and the burgeoning waistline!!!).


So I guess these blocks will become the first flimsy for 2014!
Let us hope for a calm and gentle 2014 both in my home and yours...

Time well spent...your UFO will be waiting for you. It's very pretty. It's New Year's Eve morning here so I hope for a quiet day before hearing the fireworks explode.

The quilt top will always be there waiting for you, its definately much better to spend your time with friends and hubby. Happy New Year!

Chatting with friends is always a nice diversion. It's a good start on those blocks anyway.

I think walking and watching fireworks is a far better option to begin new year.
