Happy New Year

Dawn on the 1st January 2017 in New Zealand

and I'm pondering on projects and finishes for 2017.
Exciting things going on in the blogging world, QALs and one in particular
looks very interesting indeed, this was
a BOM from Jen Kingwell, I think last year, and it's called
Long Time Gone. More on that when I have the information, but
if you Google you can pick up photos.

AHIQ with Kaja and Ann is taking a new direction, and
there is an exciting new project coming up in my quilting life, which
I'm looking forward to very much indeed.

I shall be back with a quilting focused post
tomorrow or Tuesday, but I'll sign off for you folks in the colder climates
with a summer beauty currently lighting up the garden

glorious orange nasturtiums.

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year
and lots of quilting time!

Oh, nasturtiums! Mine were gorgeous this fall until the frost. Winter wind howling right now.

I look forward to seeing where your quilting adventures take you in the new year. And thank you for posting nasturtiums...one of my favorites. In my last house I had multitudes. Here, I suspects the rabbits enjoy them too much for the plants to flourish.

Definitely a good start to 2017! Happy New Year.

We have lots of cold and snow here.

Happy New Year and your photos are a cheery way to bring it in. Sorry I have been missing in action but I've been ill for a couple of weeks and cannot shake off this cough and virus. I'm shattered. Dying to get stitching again but drained of energy.
I'm intrigued by your anticipated new direction in quilting. Can't wait to hear your news.
