Thinking about the new year?

The turkey leftovers are gone, holiday shopping season has started, and the busy season is upon us!

It's time to start thinking about the new year!

In that spirit, we are taking the month of December off from Minis and More and we'll be back in January refreshed and ready to share some fun new ideas with you.

Take this time to enjoy family and friends and to squeeze in a little extra special sewing for yourself!

We're looking forward to what the new year will bring!

What are you anticipating in the new year?

Any special plans, goals, or thoughts, for yourself or your sewing?

Right now, let's get started with the Parade and I'll share some great projects with you that were sent in by our quilting friends.

This is Brenda's Merry Mini Quilt from the Fat Quarter Shop SAL.  The fabrics are by Holly Taylor from Moda Fabrics.  Brenda took this picture when she was traveling in the mountains.  I love to see that snow!  It's impressive that Brenda is traveling so much and still finding the time to quilt!  How do you do it Brenda?  Be sure to check out what Brenda is up to on her blog, The Quilting Nook.

Vicki's pillow is beautiful!  She made with a scrappy pillow tutorial by my Minis and More co-host Sherri McConnell from A Quilting Life.  The fabrics she used are from a fabric line called My Back Porch.  What a cute pillow!

Red and white is a great color combination for Hildy's pillow cover!  Hildy used the Star Drop pattern from The Pattern Basket with fabrics by Fig Tree Quilts, Gingiber, and April Rosenthal too.  This would be great for Christmas, Valentine's Day, or any time of the year!


I'm so excited to include this Parade entry from Mary from the blog Needledmom!  Isn't this the cutest snowman?  Mary found this project hidden away in her stash when she was looking for another project to work on.  Just yesterday I was reminded of some Christmas pillow supplies that I had stashed away last year that I hope to make this year.  I guess if you look around in your sewing room you never know what will pop up!  I'm so glad Mary made her snowman project and shared it with us!  You can read more about it in her recent post. 

We're so glad you were here for the Parade today and we'll be back in 2020!
