One Year Today!

Hard to believe a whole year has passed, but today is my Blogiversary! One year ago today I made my first entry.

I am a little disappointed that I didn't make more entries, (and finish more projects).
A lot of the projects I took on were fairly large in scale. They are fun to work on, but unfortunately don't make for exciting blogging!

Well, a year later, and I am still working on the rug! The last row just took forever with the holiday distractions and all. Here is a picture of my last completed row 45.
By now I am about half finished with row 46. Groan! About 11-1/2 rows to go! Hopefully it will measure something like 8' x 12' when it is finished.

This this what I have finished so far on my Christmas quilt 'Tis the Season. I haven't been working on this too much. I think I will put it aside for a few months.

I have picked up Peace in the Country again, and have made a little bit of progress on this. This one turned out to be more detailed than I thought. The angel is yet to come. It is positively huge in relation to the town below!

It is quite cold here now, way below freezing with a lot of snow on the ground! This time last year it wasn't anywhere near this cold!

That's all for now. Hope we all have a great year!

Your rug will be well worth all the effort, I think my patience would have run out!! Love your stitching pieces too.

Happy Blogiversary!!!

Keep up the good work on the rug. It is going to be so awesome when it is done.

Peace in the Country looks good too.

Will dig out what I have done on the Christmas quilt/banner and see about getting a photo. Have not worked on it in well over a year.

Your rug is fabulous! That is a huge amount of work you've been doing on it. Thanks for the comment on my blog...I do think the Old Aviary is only in those 4 issues of SANQ, I don't know that it's avail as a whole pattern by iteself anywhere. Hope that helps!
