Happy New Year! (I can still say ‘happy new year’ three post’s into 2011, right?)

Rather than leave them getting dusty in my bookmarks folder, I thought I’d start  digging them out and occasionally posting them here so you can put them on your to make list, and maybe one of us will actually get to them.  (Yes, my strategy formanaging my own excessive accumulation is to enable yours…)

Legal Pad Cozy

Oak Leaf Bowls

modern quilting fabric - blue and gray
