PART 3 OF MILLENNIUM GARDEN

I completed a second block of "Millennium Garden" last evening but it is really part three.  Part two was making three of the star blocks.  One of which went into making the part three block.
What are you doing for New Year's Eve?  I will be sewing.  We learned long ago that being out on the roads on New Year's Eve is not the safest time.  And restaurants are crowded.  If you are out and about this evening, drive safely!

Happy New Year's Eve, Karen---love all of the goodies in the previous post AND the one you are working on in this post. Girl, you are on a roll!! :D Most excellent! :)

Wow you have been busy, gorgeous projects from last post and also the block from this post. We have cows to milk first thing every morning and learnt long ago that early starts and late nights do not mix - so a quiet night for us :-) Did wake up at midnight, texted the kids, then went back to bed!! Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.

Lovely blocks!

We will be baby sitting our new great-niece tonight.

We never go out on New Year's either. It isn't safe and we don't even stay up and watch the ball drop. I figure if I'm here in the morning, then that will be my blessing :)

Have a wonderful New Year with lots more sewing!

Beth said...

That's a beautiful block Karen. I too will be sewing for New Year's Eve. My husband and I just stay home and are lucky if we make it until midnight.

Beautiful blocks. Those fabrics are so nice in this project.
We usually have quite a bit of family over on New Year's Eve for a meal and games, but most of them depart well before the ball drops. This year most of them will be out of town, so we are having an early supper to accommodate our 80-something parents who will be with us. I am probably going to be the only one awake when the ball drops--and I will be sewing!! : )

Yvette said...

Happy New Year, Karen!
Love the block. I see you have the "Just Takes Two" link on your sidebar. Are you joining in?

Denise said...

I'm quilting too :)
Wonderful New Year to You!!

Colleen said...

I will be with the rest of you sewing in the New Year tonight ~ if I make it until midnight! Hubby will definitely fall asleep. Karen, your block looks great.

Lida said...

Same here. We have watched the ball drop in Times Square from the safety of our living room for years now. Then go to bed at 12:01! He watches football, I sew. What a bunch of party animals we are!!

Sharon said...

Happy new years to you and yours! I'm heading into work right now, but I should be out by 5 or 6. Then I'm walking 2 doors down for a bbq and then we will wander into town to toast in the new year with a few friends.

Sharon said...

Another wonderful block...I love all of your quilts!!!
We are going to supper with friends, then coming back home early....we don't like being out late on New Years Eve either.
Happy New Year...I like the idea of sewing in the New Year...sounds like a great party to me!

Supergoof said...

I wish you a very happy New Year's Eve. I'm staying at home, and I'm reading all the nice blogs,...
I have to work tomorrow, start at 8 a.m,... so no party for me,...

Marsha said...

Happy New Year to you and your family! We will be home, too.

I love that block! We're eating out at a local buffet and coming right home before the drunks are on the road. I'll be quilting while Randy watches a movie thru the backs of his eyelids! Happy New Year!

Libby said...

Love your Millennium Garden! It's such a great quilt.
Our plans are to go out (early, very early) for some sushi then come home and relax. We'll probably watch something mindless on tv and I can get a few more stitches in those hexagons *s*
Happy New Year!

Allie said...

That is a very sweet block! I'm staying in too, we don't leave the house on New Year's Eve, ugh....although it may not be safe at home, if the gunshots I've heard already are any indication! Why do people do that!

Purple Pam said...

This folk art block is lovely. You have been very busy I see. Keep up the good work.

Happy New Year 2012!

merumo said...

Another tempting blocks I'm not supposed to see! lol I ordered a pattern and a kit to make a prim mini Santa project. I wonder if you're going to do the Christmas Saturdays thing again next year? I'd love to join if you are up to that again :) I'll be stitching (XXX kind of stitching.) the rest of the day. Happy happy new year!!
