Peacefully Piecing

 I was tempted to join in with one of the New Year's Mystery quilt-alongs but instead I decided that I really needed to use up some of the many squares I'd cut as there were so many just sitting in boxes. Some of them are 30 years old as they are from dressmaking scraps when I made my children's clothes.
 I started two days ago and have made two tops and almost a third one which I should finish tomorrow. Even if I don't get them quilted before my holiday at least there has been some progress made but the boxes still seem to have plenty of squares to work with so I can see more 2'5" patterns in my future. I really want them out of here and into quilts for the needy.
   I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year celebration and I plan to spend the day in sewing and getting some more tops ready to donate.
Hugs, Jan Mac

I hope 2013 is a happy and healthy year for you Jan and your family. The world is a great place with you in it and what you do for others. Take some time out in 2013 for yourself.
