Happy New Year...



 So how was your holidays?
Did you get your WIPs finished?
Any new projects started?

 Suffice it to say I was far too distracted by external influences to finish any of my WIPs. 
Suffice it to say I was even too distracted by external influences to make the 2 new projects that I was planning.

This external influence was so strong it even pulled me away from my recent pile of Glimma which I absolutely adore.
If like me you haven't been looking after your family adequately this holidays and creeping off to sew you will probably know what I am talking about.
The project taking over IG, the Scrappy Trip Along is the most addictive quilting I have seen.



Seeing Rita's, Brenda's, Katy's was enough to make me drop everything and get blocking. Thank goodness our New Year's guests cancelled their 3 day trip. It's one thing to ignore your family but quite another to ignore your guests. That would just be rude.


It is such a great anything goes piecing quilt.
I haven't managed to do as much as I would like - apparently I'm not neglecting them as much as I could - but am probably half way through this one that is earmarked for Ruby. And in typically me mode I'm already thinking about all the combinations I want to do next - navy/grey/mushroom for Sam, red/white for Noah not to mention the wedding quilt option, friends moving house option. 
This is definitely going to be featuring heavily in 2013 both here and I'm pretty sure a lot of blogland too.
If you haven't jumped aboard yet go check out the Flickr Group Brenda set up and see all the great quilts taking shape.

I may not be starting the New Year getting my WIPs under control, but I am starting it with excitement and that's no bad thing. Is it?

Happy 2013 to one and all and wishing you many exciting quilting times xx
