Starting the new year the right way.........

If you do all year what you do on the first day of the year then I will be finishing projects.  I chose this small colorwash to finish.  It is a little under 24" square and is all batiks fabrics.  It is ditch quilted on the vertical seams.

The backing and batting were already laying with it so I didn't have to make any decision except the choosing the binding fabric.  I have about 6" left to hand stitch on the binding and the hanging sleeve needs the bottom edge stitched.

I made 15 bean soup in the Crockpot.  I guess that means I'll be cooking all year too......but not every day.  I have 7 bowls of this soup and I still have 3 bowls of chili in the freezer so there will be some fast meals here.
