The first thing I like to do in the new year is to plan my sewing activities and there are some lovely things happening later in the year. I have yet again written a list. I call it A Quilter's Dozen. Twelve items to be worked on and a thirteenth which invariably gets me into a lot of trouble. The thirteenth item is always so much more exciting and anything goes. If I can tackle those things on the list I shall think I am doing well and any finishes will be loudly cheered. The eagle eyed amongst you might notice several things on there that have appeared on previous lists.
I was given this lovely notebook by my friend Kate. I love notebooks. This one came from the Quilter's Guild of the British Isles. Inside it has a handy little ruler which detaches from the spine and there is a good mix of lined and plain paper. I think it will be quite useful. My new mantra for 2015 is "Eat, Sleep, Breathe, Stitch It". It covers a multitude and in past years my words and resolutions have not lasted very long. This will be a work in progress I think. Does anyone keep to their resolutions? Last years word was Content. I definitely failed to deliver more content on the blogging front but ending on a positive I definitely felt most content on Christmas Day.
Total blocks now made comes to 25. I am loving this project but feel glad that I am not following it as a Block of the Month because I get so hopelessly behind. The secret to this project is preparation. For the next set of blocks I may prep a job lot and then I can just stitch.
That leaves me now to just wish you all a very Happy New Year. May your year be filled with love, laughter and plenty of stitching.
