best of 2016

Meadow Mist Designs has a linky party
for your best of 2016
I looked back at a busy year
to see what I accomplished
the deer quilts were a huge accomplishment
so much so I didnt have too many pics
of them finished but rest assured my
brothers and Dad LOVED them!

the rest of the year was busy too as we had a
huge family reunion and I spent a lot of time
making little things
I also took time out to make these cute 
mug rugs for my nieces
just because I was playing in the scraps

I cleaned out closets
wait...... let me explain
if you take tee shirts
they are nice and soft
and usually around the hem edge
and the sleeve edges
you can cut out baby hats and sew them up
a few tees quickly turned into a pile of
about 20 hats that I donated to hospitals
for babies
a couple I gave to new Moms along with their quilts
and bibs

I dabbled in woodburning and I like it!
Big brother supplied me with many birch discs
to practice on........

I fell in love with this pincushion and made a ton
of them too. I gave some to my quilting buddies

this was the beginning of Dads quilt
it became reversible when brother said he
is not fond of bears
so the back has deer

I guess 2016 wasnt a bad year after all............
on to 2017

go check out meadowmistdesigns

Those baby hats are super cute! And what a good idea to make your father's quilt reversible.
