2011 So Far…

I finished 2 projects! I am SO excited and my desire to create has definitely been re-ignited. I am SO happy about this!

First up: the project that got me back in the saddle!


This is the mini quilt I made for QuiltyBee (Kolleen) for the Flickr S.T.U.D. swap! I was longing for spring when I decided on this, so I went with springy greens. The fabrics are from the “Wildwood” collection from Erin McMorris.

I started school this past Thursday. It’s an adult education class that will update my medical billing and coding skills. They also provide support on how to interview, how to write a resume and in actually finding a job. I So far I am really enjoying it! I like the instructor very much and all the people in the class (there are 8 of us total, all women) seem to be very nice.

It became apparent that the backpack I was planning to use was going to be WAY too big for the books and supplies I would need, so I decided to make a school bag for myself.


I just love it and it’s definitely a better size for my few books. It’s made with Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow and Essex linen in Putty.

I think 2011 is off to a pretty good start!
