Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ?

        Today we wrap up the holiday season. I run pretty hard from Halloween until now and am ready to pack up the stockings. Many birthdays and holiday to celebrate. I got some lovely sewing related gifts this year, a new 12 pound box of mystery fabric from the fat quarter shop, which is always a treat. I also got a new Rowenta iron which was much needed as my old one was leaking like a sieve. I got a rolling bag for my sewing machine and a promise of a design wall from my hubby. While I was in Columbus for work after Christmas I bought myself this fat quarter pack as a late present from Santa. I don't normally buy fat quarter bundles. But this one was half off since it was "Christmas" fabric. I found it to be pretty neutral but wasn't going to argue. I also bought a yard of the zig zag and a yard of a grey snow flake print.
       Today I was spending my day off making resolutions and sewing some blogger block of the month blocks. I caught up with my blocks and decided on the quilting front my resolution would be to complete 13 quilts in 2013. I have several in progress so I may be able to finish them up to boost the total. I don't know if it can be done but we will see this time next year.
       Here are my November and December Blogger BOM blocks. Novembers post can be found here. Decembers post over here. These are my second group of Novembers blocks. I used all the same fabric for the non-fussy cut pieces. My blocks were a touch short. My seem allowances always require a little extra. December's block might be my favorite yet! It was so much fun to make.
