Looking Back in 2010

click on the photo to go to the original blog post

I read this WONDERFUL book along with No.2 and 3 in the series. Loved every inch of all 3.. .



Made these fantastic Snickerdoodle Muffins/Cupcakes...


Combined my love of Nilla Wafers and Raspberry filled Cupcakes...


Saw the most adorable baby sock cupcakes on the Internet and made my own. I packaged them up in the fun cupcake boxes I bought from the BRP Box Shop...


Finished some UFO's... including a twin and matching baby quilt...


I was able to meet up with some of my bestest blogging buddies In Real Life!...


I "inherited" a box full of beautiful yo yo's from a dear friend...


Took a wonderful trip to the coast with our family...


Had so much fun sewing this baby quilt... {still love the apple fabric}


Hosted a Sew Scraps Along that was Oh Sew Fun!!!


Started my Scrappy 2010 Quilt using selvedges...


And ended the year finishing the Christmas quilt I started too long ago...

There was so much more in 2010! Up's and Down's, Good and Bad, Happy and Sad... And through it all I have been very much aware of all my many blessings. Too many to list for sure! I have nothing but happy thoughts going into 2011. It's going to be a good year! I can just feel it.

I have some really fun things planned for 2011. Blogging, Sewing, Quilting, Vacationing, Growing, Learning and just trying to savor all the moments.

And I wish the very, very, very best to all of you in 2011!

Love your look back. I loved that book too. My daughter read it in her book club and let me read it too. I did not know there were 2 more volumes. Guess I better take a trip to the library (it is 1 1/2 blocks from my house) and check them out.

What a great, upbeat, blog today and always! One of the great ideas you shared this year was the saving of scraps from a years quilts~I just started saving this month~for a year-end scrappy quilt. Hugs and best wishes for 2011! Toni

Oh that book, I saw it on someones blog and had to read it and it must have been you talking about it. I got it from the library and have just extended my loan so my MIL can read it.
I am glad to hear there are more, I was enthralled.
