Happy New Year!!!

Okay, so I'm a little late.  Par for the course.  I am so looking forward to this new year, new projects and new places to visit.  Speaking of visits....

 We are in the Upper Peninsula visiting my son and his family.  It is so beautiful here.  The sun is shining and the temp is only 14 degrees but with the sun its not to bad.

This is the view outside his side door.  Later today we are going to watch my granddaughter Ashley play hockey.  She has 2 games today and 1 tomorrow.  Then we head home on Monday.

We brought our new dog, Sammie with us.  She didn't like being in the car at all.  She shook and whined for a while.  Once she got used to it she was fine. She curled up in the well of the back seat and slept.  She sure loves the snow.

I make some 12" quilts for the daughters, daughters-in-law and girlfriends as Christmas gifts.  I bought them each a table stand quilt hanger.  Her are the quilts.

I made a photo of each set of quilts and put their name under the description. That way when I make them future quilts I won't duplicate.  I think they were
pretty happy with them.

I am now finishing up my last quilt as part of Quiltmaker Magazine's Scrap Squad.  They will be announcing the 2013 Scrap Squad members soon.  I had so much fun this year.  Made a lot of new friends, tried new techniques and was kept very busy.  I look forward to new adventures in quilting this year and hope to show you many new projects and hopefully some old finishes.

Thanks for being loyal followers.  It is much appreciated.  

Hugs, Cathy

I love all your mini quilts - what a great idea for family and less stressful than trying to make big quilts!

What lovely mini quilts...and what a great idea to keep track of them too!

I'm glad that Sammie learned to cope with car rides... it'll be easier on the trip home. Safe travels!

What a great idea to give the hanger and little quilts for gifts. Love them all.

Happy New Year, Cathy! The little quilts are just gorgeous, what a sweet thing to make for a gift. Enjoy your time up north, eh!

What cute little quilts! A super gift and you're very clever to take photos and keep track of who got what! Great idea.

Wow, 14*. I guess I won't whine about the 23* we had last night. :)
