last post for 2011

This is the last post of 2011.
I would have done a year in review, but I haven't blogged about my quilting for a year, AND I recently got a new laptop, so some older pictures are on the old computer and newer ones are here, so well... I got lazy, and I'm not doing a year in review- but it's been A LOT!

Here's the orca part 7 done
the units were fun and ODD, mine were wide enough but about 1/8" too short, don't know what happened. I'm still not LOVING the blues in there, not enough contrast....

this is also part of clue 7

THIS die and mat came in the mail the other day, woo hoo!

Today I got a few goodies from the blog hop, this one was actually from a BDSI, boxing day sew in- on my anniversary... a fun panel and a little trick book.

THIS one was from the blog hop, for some reason I though they would be 5" squares, I saw these and they are so cute and tiny :-) would make a cute doll blanket.
just another thing for the LIST... :-)

These fabrics came today from connecting threads. This whole pile for $58 is AWESOME
the black is for the color block swap  and the rest are for a baby quilt I mentioned it all here

someone commented on one of my blog posts, that she wanted more PEANUT pics :-)
so here's a few.

This is HIS couch, do you see the dark on the arm rest? that's all embedded slobber!! EWWW, I gave up cleaning it a long time ago, it's nasty.... LOL
doesn't he just look un-loved and neglected??

I love so many things you have made and are working on, Bea!! The owls and mugrugs especially. I also LOVE that you have so many projects on the go. I am like that - almost too many to list. I'll do mine in the next few days.
Have a great 2012 and keep making lovely things!!
