Welcome 2017 and Good-Bye 2016
March 1st was my last post. Sorry for not being very active in 2016. There has been many ups and downs for my family in 2016.
In March I had a medical procedure, my last appointment was Oct 21st. All is good now. Found out my father-in-law has cancer, he has gone through treatment and is in remission now... Praise the Lord.
On June 28th we bought a house and on the 2nd of July we moved in.
I quit my job in November. My daughter come home for the holidays, with the grand babies.
They are growing so fast. We are have another baby due March 3rd. I had to wait till after everyone open their presents before I found out what we are having. This is what I received in my last present Christmas morning. The best gift. We are having a Boy!!!!!
I plan on having more time to quilt in 2017, with a BOM in starting in June. I am testing quilt patterns for a quilting magazine, so much to look forward to in 2017. Some I can't talk about until its time, but will let the world know when the time comes.
I am also thinking about going back to school, (scary at almost 50 going back to school) but I can do it.
I will be blogging more this year, but for now I am just welcoming 2017.

Creativity Challenge #2
Challenge #2 was to make your initial out of something with your initial. Which I haven't done yet. Still working on that one.
Creativity Challenge #3
Write down random words you hear
Here are some of my random words. This was fun to do, love creating different fonts.
Creativity Challenge #4
Color in your coloring book!
I went out and got a coloring book. I thought that I got the same one as Shelly, then I looked at my closer and its by the same author but different title.. "Enchanted Forest". Still need to finish coloring the page, this is really relaxing.
These Challenges are great to jump start my creativity. Thanks to Shelly at Prairie Moon Quilts.
January 350 Blocks
I am doing the 350 Blocks again this year. For January I did 86 blocks.
I did 84 half square triangles that are 1" in size when they are sewn together they will be 1/2". I am actually going to make a purse out of these.
I am also doing a BOM - My Favorite Things
I have also been playing around with my scan n cut, this month. I made a cover for my scan n cut. Now I am getting ready to decorate it with some rhinestones
Here is the first cover that I made, I am working on sold color one to put my rhinestones on.
Here is the design that I am putting on the sold color one.
Starting to put the rhinestones, thought that I would do it in different colors.
Hoping that next month will be as productive as this month was.

I am trying something new this year with Prairie Moon Quilts.
Creativity Challenge #1: Doodle for at least 30 minutes
This was relaxing and fun. I had some books
on Zentangling that I used for inspiration.
The first one was just doodling with the Name of this challenge.
There was YouTube video that I took the inspiration from that
video to create my next one.
Added some color to make it pop.
The next one is from the Zentangling book that I had that I used for inspiration.
Then at work I was doodling while on the phone or when a report was loading.
So yes this challenged me to come up with some ideas the bottom two I didn't have any reference just started to doodle. This was a great challenge. I know I am running a few days late for the next challenge, but getting ready to start working on January 14th challenge today.
"Make your initial out of something"
So off to the sew/craft room on this snowing Sunday afternoon.
