Best of 2019

I'm joining in on "Meadow Mist Designs"
Best of 2019 Linky Party.
I can't think of a better way to end the year, than reminiscing over, 
what my fellow bloggers have done.
Thanks Cheryl for the fabulous year, you have provided us. 
You know we can't wait to see what's in store for next year.
I know it will be great!

Our "Sew Incredibly Crazy and Friends" group,
 has kept the us smiling, again this year
Our final block will post on Jan 1, 2020.
I'm excited to start working on my setting, for these fun filled 
seasonal blocks!
It's been "sew"much fun to see the thousands of viewers, versions of our BOM.
Their comments and support have met the world to all of us!
We are looking forward to 2020!
Winky winky!

"BeaQuilter" had us cleaning our sewing rooms, and finding a book 
that got lost in the mess!
It was scary task...but my quest came up with this book,
along with a slightly cleaner room.
I dug through my hand dyes and created the background for this "indoor garden". 
You know, the flowers I can't kill!

Christmas came in April this year, when Nan Baker and
 Margaret Brewster Willingham,
kicked off their new book with a blog hop.
I was lucky enough to be chosen to make this bright and cheery
Advent Tree. 
Minus one ornament.
Have you ever tried to find Christmas ornaments in April?
Amazon to the rescue. They had 1 set available, but unfortunately it came 
with a broken one. 

"Island Batik" kicked off their new lines of fabric this summer, 
with the "Beat the Heat" blog hop.
I look my "Sunny Side Up" fabrics and created this fun quilt
from Cheryl Brown's "Fresh and Fabulous" quilt book.
What better place to beat that heat, but by "the ole car pond"?

Carla from "Creatin' in the Sticks" hosted this fun hop.
 I went right to a book from my favorite "Queen" of scraps
Bonnie Hunter...
...to create this "Zucherwatte" quilt.
That's "cotton candy" to most of us!
Not a girl in sight, but a houseful of boys, yet I managed to find enough pink 
in my stash for this! Score one for our stash piles!
One can hope, my new grand baby coming next year will be a girl!
Fingers crossed!

That grand baby isn't the only exciting thing happening around here next year...
I'm over the drama of this decade and ready for a change.
New decade now attitude...I'm laughing my way into the new year.
Starting with 365 Silly Holidays!
Did you know there's a holiday for every day of the year?
It's true, and you can follow me on Instagram to see them all.
I will be posting a mini 8"x10" quiltie daily celebrating the day.
It's a crazy idea, but my fingers have been working away on it, and I'm excited
to start sharing...
You can find me on Instagram, with the link on my right hand side bar.
Heck, you can even join in when the spirit moves you.
Just use #365SillyHolidays  or  #DailyGiggleFest

It's time to turn those frowns upside down in the new year!
The "Quilt Qwazy Queens will be celebrating "Worldwide Quilting Day" in March 
with a fun filled blog hop... "Making Us Laugh" 
Won't you join us?
You can find all the information 

Looking forward to what the new year brings each and every one of you!
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
