A good start to the Sewing Year.

I have big plans for 2016!  A list of to-dos that are achievable.  I was happy to close 2015 with most of the projects on my wish list completed.
I finished the backing and binding of the Naughty Kitty clawed quilt yesterday.
Then I made a  denim pincushion that I saw on Pinterest, and had to make for myself, to match the denim sewing machine cover I made last year.   And I made a tea cosy for the forthcoming Tea cosy Festival at Bundoora Homestead, which opens next month.  I am going to make a few different ones, as there is no limit this year to how many can be entered by one person.  I've got some nice chicken fabric out to make the second one, but Ken was admiring the fabric, so the teacosy may not get to the Festival!  We'll see.  I have until 31st January to make them.\

Looks like you are off to a flying start... My plans for 2016 - for every new start I have to have finished something older first... I am hopefully going to start my Leanne's quilt blocks perhaps in the second half of the year... Trying not to buy anything else unless it is needed... Well, that is the plan anyway... Talk soon and we will arrange a stitching day - Mondays or Fridays will be my preferred as I am looking after Miss B on a Tuesday :)
