All things new in 2012

There is a lot of newness happening in 2012!!!  First off is my Christmas present from my wonderful boyfriend.  I have been sewing with a Brother that I purchased from Wal-Mart about four years ago.  Look what is coming in the mail soon....
It's a Janome HD1000.  I am so excited about this machine.  I know it's not a high end sewing/quilting machine, but it most definitely will be better than what I was using.  From what I can tell, it has received great reviews.  It should arrive sometime this week!

To go along with my new sewing machine is a new quilting bee.  Melissa at Happy Quilting has started a quilting bee for 2012 and I am lucky enough to be able to participate.  I am excited, nervous, scared, etc...  This will be my first quilting bee.  I can't wait to get started.  My goals for this year long project are to have fun, meet new people, and learn a lot.  I will keep you update on each block.

Hopefully I will be able to post some sewing pictures at the end of the week!  Now I am off to go fabric shopping for the quilting bee.  My stash definitely needs some building!!!

Missing in Action

I haven't posted in forever!  It's not because I haven't been sewing.  I guess I just got lazy.  I have been enjoying the evening looking at all of the giveaways during the sew mama sew giveaway day.  It has given me just enough of a push to get back in the swing of things.  I am hoping to finish some pajama bottoms for my nieces for Christmas.  I will post some pics when I finish!  I am also working on a scrappy pink baby quilt.  Hope to finish that one by the end of the year!  I may be in over my head :)

Thanks for looking at the blog!
