Happy New Year

We had a great New Years Eve! I hope you did too!!
Charles cooked the most delicious 3-course meal for us, and the kids were thrilled to see the fireworks. It is pretty amazing to sit on your own couch at home, and watch the fireworks :)

The kids and I had decorated a little. We made this garland, based on Purl Bees New Years Eve Garland. Only we used craft paper and Miss V's pretty tape with stars on it, instead of using felt and the sewing machine.
I like it. I am saving it for next year! Miss V is very proud of how it turned out. And she did put almost all of it together.

Inspired by the paper garland, I decided it was time to finally make the fabric flag garland I have been wanting to make for...erhm...well....years!
I managed to finish it while Charles and the kids took a nap! I like how it brigthens up my kitchen window.
I used store-bought bias binding. The flags are 2-sided, turned and topstitched. I like it.

I didn't make as many Christmas presents this year as I did last year, but I made these Box Wallets for my nieces. It's a KeykaLou pattern. Very easy to follow, if you need a great bag pattern, I would recommend one of hers!

Did I show you my Christmas present? Charles gave me this Bernina multi-tool for Christmas. If you want to see what all the gadgets are, go here.
I love it, it's the coolest multi-tool I have ever seen ;)

And I have finished Katys spiderweb block for SC2 for (ACK) November, so I am starting 2010 without being behind!
How great is that?!

I will be back with soon with quilting goals for 2010....do you know yours??

Happy New Year Tine. The garlands/bunting look great. Ooo the multi tool looks interesting.

I have a lot of goals for 2010- a lot are the projects I didn't squeeze into 2009. :-) Red coat is my next biggie now I've done the charity blocks for Simone.

Happy New Year! Your garlands are beautiful - what a great idea. How very cool to have Swiss Army sewing tools. I like the picture of your children - they're growing up. Ask doesn't look like a baby anymore.

Happy New Year, Tine!

Lovely decoration, great bags and a warm holiday. Have a healthy, happy new year with many, many smiles and fantastic moments!

No goals written down yet... But I have lots of things just started last year to develop in the new year. A new thing will be a big quilt for my bed. June maybe.

I love the garland! I live in Copenhagen, too! Where do you go fabric shopping?
