Happy New Years!!!!

This year the Woolie is gonna be a wonderful adventure.  I know I had a blast with the blog in 2011 and now we are starting year #2!!!  I have enjoyed all your comments and getting to know quilters from around the world.  You have been a wonderful support especially for my quilting! Thank you from the bottom of my stash!

So what is in store for the follower who want to follow the way of the "Woolie?"  Well I spent 4 hours!!!!  4 freaking hours trying to figure out how to load this wonderful first ornament and link it to a button on the blog!!!  So far the Internet is winning but my next step is to ask my youngest son...humm just got off of Skyp with him and forgot to ask...dang dorothy (as Robin would say).

I am beginning my Fabric Diet which means for me no purchases that do not include backings, notions and batting.  This will run 1 quarter from Jan.-March.  I am still sweating over this one.  But you can make your own rules...like you will only buy 3 yard cuts! LOL

Next, UFO challenge which means I will finish one project a month...and, again you can make your own rules...you just have to follow them! Finish for me...means finished, quilted, bound and labeled! And it can be a UFO or PIG (which for me means a kit purchased over 6 months ago) a month! I need to get some of these kits done. I will post a running photo each month of what I finished.

This will be followed by the Free Motion Challenge which for me will me quilting one of my own project each month.  Will help in practicing my quilting.  I used to be a good quilter and even had a long arm...what happened!

...and finally to complete a Fall/Winter which includes a Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas project each month so I will actually have decor ready.

All this will be done with,

"grace" 

my 2012 word

And now for the announcement of the Grand Prize Winner of the
