testing, testing, anyone there?

OK, I don't want you to faint or anything!  I know it has been forever since I posted.  But life happened!  2 new babies - Hudson and Cora - sweet, sweet babies!  lots of traveling, being sick - a lot it seems - the holidays, and my birthday.....  sigh... a big one.....  really?  but thanks to friends and family I survived turning 60, 29 again!  LOL....  

anyway I have big plans for the new year.  #1 get a handle on all those UFOs.  I want them done, done, done!  

Here is my first finish of the new year.  it's a Christmas wall hanging.  20 x 28.  I think I will add a red button on the big yellow star.  it's #12 of a series of 12.  I think I have about 4 or 5 more to quilt.  but they will be done this year!!!  I hang them on my laundry room door.  

Next is a small wall hanging.  13 x 15.  it's about 5 or 6 years old.  I believe I found it in an Australian magazine.  My friend Vicki and I did this together.  not sure she has hers done.  if not, get er' done Vicki!  if you have yours done, then more power to you, you beat me!  LOL...  

I figured I used about 2 1/3 yards from stash to finish these.  everything came from stash.  that makes me feel wonderful to use, not buy and FINISH!!!!  

I promise to be a better blogger.  so much happens, that I want to share with family and friends.  My word for this year is to "simplify" my life.  I picked that word for last year too, and apparently I haven't learned yet.  but slowly I will.  

thanks for reading, you will hear from me soon!
