Twas the 30th of
December, and while feeling quite wilted,
She suddenly realized there
was no “mini” quilted!
She ran to her sewing room
and picked up the cutter,
And threw down some scraps and started to mutter.
How could she possibly make
it in time?
She’d but a few hours to make
She’d never before stitched
so wonderfully snappy.
Sublime it is not but it’s
done and she’s happy.
And, I heard her exclaim as
she turned out the light,
“Happy New Year to all, and
to all a Good Night!”
I know this is a pretty pathetic end to a wonderful year of monthly minis, but as I said, "it's done"! I found two tiny blocks
leftover from our c1880 sew-a-long with Pam Buda (here) and with the leftover
strips I made seven more. I pieced them all together, added a border and,
voila! Since this micro mini shares its birthday today with our son, Nick, (and
for the other obvious reason) I am calling it “Nick of Time”.
Thanks for another great year
of mini merriment! I’ve been asked about continuing for another year. Since it
seems that some months, the mini is all I can muster, I would hate to give it
up just yet. And, we did pick up a few new followers this year so I would hate
to leave you stranded (wink). So, on to 2022. I hope you all have had much fun
as I have looking at all these little gems.
For those already on board
and for any newcomers; as always, there are NO RULES and NO pressure. I post on
the last day of the month and you can jump in anytime. If you don’t have a
blog, but enjoy following along, simply e-mail me a photo and description of
your mini and I will post it.
I do wish you all a very Happy New Year. I thought this vintage postcard was just weird enough to fit the bill for 2021.
We all felt a bit batty in 2021. Let's ring out the old loud enough to say "bring on a better 2022 for all"!
Let’s see what our fellow
elves have accomplished in this busy holiday month.
