Playing Around and Laying Around

I have not sewn a stitch since Christmas!!  We have been to busy checking out new toys, putting together puzzles, playing games, making food, and basically partying!!  We even attempted to squeeze in a family picture before church.  Family picture's are always tuff around here, there's is a lot of bribing and whining that comes along with them.  It's not printing and framing worthy or anything, but it is nice to get a family shot every once and a while, just to see how everyone is growing up.

So now it is the new year and just as I am ready to get back to my sewing room,  I catch a nasty case of the stomach flu.  I was in bed all day yesterday and am still not feeling so hot today.  What ya gonna do. At least I can type here and there whilst lying about.  (I missed sewing so much I tried to go down to my room this morning to work on a block, I ended up back in bed in 2 minutes)

I did get some wonderful quilting news a few days ago that I am excited to share!!  My Refracted quilt was accepted to be in the Quilt Con show.  Yippee Skippee!!  Now I need to add a quilt sleeve to it and get it shipped off.  This will be my first quilt sleeve so here's hoping it isn't to tuff :)

And since it is the first Wednesday of the year, I best have a little rundown on what I will be working on.  Sorry, I really should add some photo's of these WIP's but I am stuck in bed.  So here is the list.
