Happy New Year!

Thanks for all of your comments on what you are looking forward to in 2011. Personally, I am looking forward to having my kitchen back some time this year. My 1987 kitchen needed a face lift. My sons that were 1 and 2 when our kitchen was built (and a few sons-in-law we added along the way, and my 9-year-old grandson) helped tear down the kitchen they were raised in. Lots of great memories there, but looking forward to many more. Any of you who have remodeled know what a giant mess it is! Sheet rock dust everywhere---need I say more?

But sheet rock dust or not, there were new patterns to write (coming soon) and quilt kits to ship. While I'm at the post office, I think I will ship a "Blissful Day" kit to our giveaway winner:

 L. Johnson who said: "Beautiful quilt and fabric! I am looking forward to a year of snuggling and watching my first grandson grow! Merry Christmas to you and your family!"

Congratulations! E-mail your address to bonnie (at) cottonway (dot) com so I can send your kit right out!

Happy New Year!

Time for Celebration

It's that time of year, a special time to spend with
family and friends. 
A time to look back on the year and reflect on the events of
2010 and count our blessings.

This has been an especially great year for me. 
So many amazing things have happened in our family. 
We are SO blessed!

As many of you know, I have been celebrating
Cotton Way's 20 year Anniversay all year long as well.

And to top it off, this magazine just hit the stands. 

My "Blissful Day" quilt made the cover!

It was fun to read the article about our family and how
 Cotton Way all started. 
What an amazing journey it has been.

Quilt Magazine did an amazing job! 
Thank you to everyone involved!

If you are interested in a quilt kit, hop on over to our website
It's a super easy quilt to make and it's made with my
favoite fabric line so far, Bliss.

So, to finish the year and my 20 year Celebration off right...

I am doing a give a way for the quilt kit for my
"Blissful Day" quilt!

To enter, leave a comment telling me what you are
looking forward to in 2011.

If you blog about it, or link to it, you will get two entries in the
give a way. 
The winner will be announced on December 31st.

 I hope your holidays are filled with joy, peace and laughter!

Merry Christmas,

The Best Christmas Present

  Anyone that knows me well, knows that I love newborn babies. My last baby was born on Dec. 26.  It really made Christmas a special time for our family.

 Now little Nicholas is here and he is such a sweet baby.  I finally got to snuggle the little guy and snuggle we did.  All weekend.  Camille could barely pry him from me to get a few snuggles in herself.

Don't you just love the way they lay on your chest and breathe on your neck and squeek now and then...     oh I just love that.
