Happy New Year

Joyeux le Jour de l'An in French, etc, etc, etc.
I'm very glad that 2009 is over. It was not the best of years. I'm looking forward to 2010. Hopefully things will be better, and if not, I will be better prepared for it.
Last night DH and I watched more bowl games, and  at midnight (EST) watched some silly man break the world record for driving his rally car off a pier onto a barge, it was in the air for over 250 feet. Silly is the nice word. I'm not a fan of adrenaline junkies. It's one thing to get your self killed, but they tend to become severely disabled and their family, friends, and communities end up footing the bill, both emotionally and financially for it.

 Being the first of the month it is also Schnibble time! Check out the parades at Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life of Tuffets, which we all know I have a problem with, but on the upside, Little Bit can have very fancy bean bags lol. Mine wasn't in the parade, again, but oh well. It's still very cool seeing everyone elses, I can look at mine on the table lol.
This months Schnibble is Madelaine! The picture is Sinta's Schnibble.

I'm hoping mine turns out so well, I'll be using the same line...Rounenneries! I'm probably going to look back in 10 years and think "how obsessed was I?" but hey it makes me happy now. I'm thinking I'll add black around the center block so I get a big center star. I loved the look on my table runner so I'm pretty confident that it'll be good. I just need the pattern. Which I will order today and hopefully will get by the end of the month lol.
I also have to order another charm pack because I want to make this. I'm so glad I'm finally finding patterns I like for this line. So many are boring strips, and really don't take advantage of this amazingly versatile line. I'm really looking forward to French General's next line le Jardin. And getting my first installment of the BOM I signed up for from FQS.

 Little Bit just had me put up a static cling to her window and I have no idea what I was going to write about lol. I had something I promise. Or maybe it was just more rambling lol.

 It's snowing like crazy here, we're supposed to get about 6 more inches, Little Bit is in heaven over it.  The wind is up so it looks like a cyclone of snow outside my window, or the somewhat rude sounding snowsqualls.

Ok I don't remember so I'm going to cuddle with DH and pretend to care about whatever bowl game is on. And maybe do some binding, but probably not. ;)

Great header!
I really like that Schnibble! It looks very similar to the lap quilt I made for a friend's mother last month, only I used flowery prints. Enjoy the snow - well Little Bit, anyway. And I know 2010 is going to be the best year ever!
