Do you love lists? I love lists. Every year I make a new one. Or two. Or several. This year is no different. What an ambitious set of lists I have! According to my lists I’m going to make some lovely things for my home, finish some beautiful gifts for my family, add the finishing details to projects that have been long neglected, and make a dozen pieces to donate to local causes. Ahhh that New Year hope, isn’t it grand!
One of my promises to self is to keep track of what I use and not replace it all. I have a very generous stash and I find that once in a while it is difficult to focus with too many choices. Also, I’m getting to an age where I may have STABLE (stash beyond my life expectancy), and that is not good. I see a dumpster moving in before my body is cold. So for every 5 yards I use up, I can buy 1. Let’s see if that works! Not certain how that is going to work for the shirts and jeans and ties.
Having recently moved, I’m also trying to find my “Quilt Tribe”. One would think that this is a no-brainer, but it can be challenging, especially if you are a little shy. I will find them though and this year will be a very productive year making beautiful things.
I’ll show my progress as I progress. Sew what are your plans?
