Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I hope 2016 is off to a great start for you! 

December 2015 was a blur for us. I travelled for work for 12 days and then as soon as I got home we had to switch gears and get ready to host Christmas dinner at our house for the first time. We had a lovely time and a great meal.

Looking back, I accomplished a lot of quilting, knitting and baking in 2015! Some of my favourites are in the photos below.

Croissants

One January 1, we celebrated the fourth annual croissant day (self-proclaimed) and made these gorgeous, flakey beauties.

Whole lotta hexitesI’m working on my first english paper pieced hexes project – these little hexies will find a permanent home on the wall in my dining room.

And finally, I’m currently working on the most adorable Princess and the Pea quilt. I’ve got the top done and need to finish stitching the appliqué before I get to quilting it. I’m so excited. Come visit me on instagram for a sneak peak!

What are you working on as we start off this new year?
