12 on 12/12/12

Inspired by Victoria's post, I've created my own 12 on 12/12/12.

12 large string blocks, ready to be pieced for one of my Superstorm Sandy donation quilts. 
I'm thinking turquoise sashing?

My new Big Shot and 12 freshly cut hexies 
(thanks to winning the Tula Pink Sew Along over at Sew Sweetness!)

12 fabrics and ribbons for my new nephew's Christmas stocking

12 beloved New York Beauty blocks. 

 12 favorite books from my library

12 piles of fabric ready for new homes from my 12 Days of Christmas giveaway
Tomorrow is the last day!

12 fabric bins that aren't overstuffed anymore, courtesy of the above giveaway

12 of my favorite Shades of Grey charm squares, ready to become a quilt in January 2013

12 shiny new Aurifil threads, again courtesy of the Tula Pink Sew Along

My Christmas present to myself for January--finally sewing these 12 flannel and wool prints into the snuggly snowman quilt that I intended to make 4 years ago!

12 Patchwork Pals fat quarters (from Red Rooster) that I'm just itching to sew into a sweet little girl's quilt

And finally, inspiration in one of my favorite forms: 12 holiday M&Ms

Happy 12-12-12 day! And Happy Birthday to my dad! A pretty cool birthday to have!

  3. Cute post! Today is my mom's birthday, too. She is 63!

  5. Love this. Really fun. I'm sorry I've been a slug and haven't been able to do a block.

  6. I think this is my favorite post ever on CMW! Super creative!!! Love it! Know I wouldn't be able to stop at 12 m and m's!
