Happy New Year and NTT!

Happy 2023, quilty friends!  I hope your holiday season has been wonderful. Ours was truly fantastic.  In fact, my hubby is still on vacation so they days have been getting away from us a little bit, so please forgive the later than usual post.  I just forgot today was Wednesday! 

Since getting back in town after the holiday, I've slept in, cooked some of our favorite meals, put my house back in order, watched a ton of college football bowl games, and hosted some friends for New Years Eve.  I even took out my 2023 planner and started filling in some of the big dates- you know, like my son's high school graduation (eek!!!) and all of my scheduled teaching engagements.  It has been a thoroughly restful vacation, and now I'm looking forward to getting back into my studio.

Though I took a break from social media and sewing, it's obvious that lots of you were busy sewing right up through Christmas, so this week's features will give you one last bit of holiday cheer.  Judy at J Bigg's Scrap Pieces linked up this festive quilt-

I love this little table runner from Sue Dario Quilting-

Julie's Quilts and Costumes showed off this sweet little mini quilt, including hand embroidery-

And finally, this Christmas stunner is by Rebecca Grace Quilting-

I'm so happy to kick off another great year of Needle and Thread Thursday!  Y'all are full of so much inspiration!  Cheers to the new year, friends!  Let's party!

  1. Happy New Year! I hope you soak in as much as you can with your husband while he's still on vacation and your son as he prepares to graduate. I hope you have a wonderful 2023!

  2. Thanks for the feature of my Christmas quilt. My daughter loved this gift.

  3. Glad you had a nice holiday break! I remember those days, when it was so leisurely between Christmas and the new year. Everyone took it much easier. Wishing you a great start to 2023, with lots of fun occasions to celebrate as the year goes along.

  4. Happy 2023!


  5. Thank you for the feature of my Grandma's House bench pillow from a couple of weeks ago, and glad you had such a restful vacation!
