Happy New Year, Old and New Projects

I wish everyone a healthier and happier New 2010 year!
I want to start the new year by showing this Snow men Quilt I pieced last year! :)) I had a lot of fun piecing it and I got a lot of practice measuring borders. Sorry for the blurry picture, I had my camera not on the right setting and I should take a better picture.
I also made a case for my new cell phone Droid that I love! The case is very practical as I can wear it on my wrist while caring stuff to my sewing room. It has a different fabric for lining.
Holidays for me are a lot of baking! I made this Coconut cream pie for Christmas. It was my first time baking a Coconut pie. I used a pie crust that I baked for the shell. It was pretty good, especially the fresh toasted coconuts on top.
Toffee Blondie desert that I called Brunetty, because I used part dark brown sugar instead of light.

And my favorite desert that I made for New Years Eve party was my Mom’s famous Bulgarian Baklava. Everyone that had baklava before and tried mine loved it and so do I! My Mom always said that the hardest part of making the baklava is cutting it. She usually makes it in a circle tray and it’s harder to make the ramb shape pieces. All the quilters can imagine it I am sure.
Here is my baked and surop baklava. I wish I could share it with you.
“Be Attitudes” is one of the New Year Projects I am gonna start this year. My mother-in-law got it for me and I just love it! I already started on the first block “Be warm”. Baby it’s cold outside…

I would like to join my blogging friend Myra in her PhD challenge. It is only 6 months and you get your PhD, sounds good?
Well, PhD means Projects Half Done. :))
Here is my list of PhD I would like to finish until June 30th 2010:
*Blue and Yellow Quilt
*The Coffee Quilt
*Foolish Goose Tracks
*My Sister’s Wedding Quilt
*Charity Quilt
*Surprise Table Runners
The list may look short to you but it’s a lot of work. Wish me luck and if you would like to join click here.
Have a Happy New Year!!!

    I just love your quilts, Zlaty. I must say that I was lucky enough to enjoy some of the New Years Eve treats. I really loved the Brunetty dessert! Yum! I wish I had a piece now.

    Happy New Year to you and your family!In my family the hardest thing when making baclava was trying to resist taking a small piece out while the syrup was still working its magic. As you surely know, this destroys the delicate balance and lets liquid drain from the other parts into the hole that forms. My mum let the baclava soak for at least a day – it felt like the longest day 😉

    Oh Zlaty, I'm so glad you aren't able to share your baked treats; I'd gain twenty pounds in no time! Good luck on your PhD list!! YOU CAN DO IT! 🙂
