Happy New Year!

First things first....2014 Pledge



I Danette will try my utmost...
·        To always swap on time.
·        To always email a THANK YOU to my partner.
·        To be considerate and thoughtful when choosing a gift.
·        To give my partner the quality of gift that I would like to receive.
·        To communicate when it’s required.
·        To NEVER over commit and let a partner down.
·        To advise the swap mama when I receive my gift.

This I sewomly pledge....



It's Wednesday and time for OFW hosted by Karen.  


I attached three flowers to my garden which is growing quite quickly considering the bitter cold we've had in the Midwest.  This morning when I was outside collecting water samples it was a balmy -9 F!  (Monday and Tuesday were much colder).
Click here to visit the other flowers blooming.  Thank you Karen for hosting.



I've also joined Cheryll's Valentine Heart Swap and have signed up for FNwF (Friday Night with Friends.  Click here to join up with Friends on the first Friday of every month (Jan 10th this month).  I enjoy looking at all the wonderful projects - it's so inspiring!  Cheryll hosts so many wonderful swaps.  Stop by and visit her and don't forget to take The Pledge!


I also meet with a group of friends one Friday a month.  This past Friday we exchanged wrapped packages containing one yard of fabric.  The challenge is to use at least 3/4 yard of that fabric and have the project completed by our June meeting.  I have no idea what to make yet but here's the fabric:



And now for mail - Yeah!


I won this beautiful pattern from Carole (click her name to see the beautiful projects she's been working on).  She also sent some of the blue fabrics she used in hers.  Thank you so much, I can't wait to make the runner.

I just finished a quilt top but haven't taken pictures yet....

Stay Warm!!!
