I'm greeting the year having finished two UFOs. It's a good thing to bring some projects to a conclusion, even as I'm continually thinking about projects yet to come. I quilted and bound my Bee Quilt, which features hand embroidered blocks from vintage patterns. I blogged about the finished top back in June.

It's not perfect, but it's done, which is just as good these days.
I had this cheerful floral backing fabric in my stash, and I was happy to put it to use.
Several months ago Debra quilted Big Scrappy for me and it's been waiting patiently for me to put on the binding. Debra used a fleece blanket for the batting, and it's wonderfully warm and cozy. Here's a shot of the unquilted top and here's the original post.
This is a time of beginnings and of endings. It's good to wrap up loose threads, and prepare ourselves for what's to come. I hope your New Year celebrations are joyful. Many blessings to you and yours in 2011.
