The first finish of 2016!

It almost makes it sound like I am a  miracle worker but the truth be known, these finishes were almost done when 2016 started! Here is my cute little angel made from a kit ( it included the frame!!!!) by Bits and Pieces by Joan.
I am really pleased with it and now it is going up on my wall to look over me while I sew.
I also finished this pair of nice and simple ribbed socks. This wool is beautiful and soft and really thin. They are thin enough to actually wear with shoes. Many of the socks I have knitted are  just slightly too thick for shoes so I usually wear them just about the house...but that is nice too!
And I finished my little blocks. Today I'll be sewing them together and then I'll start the prep to add the little wool appliques.
So cute!
 I have been really enjoying reading all the blogs about the wonderful plans for quilts in the upcoming year! It is always interesting to hear what other quilters are thinking about!
And as for me, I have TOO many plans floating around my head.
I need to start doing just a few things at a time instead of 20 things at a time!
Happy Sewing!


  1. Nice projects. I haven't tried pieces that small yet.
