A month since last post… hmmm, not good. Well, I will blame it on the season — the hustle and bustle of shopping and wrapping and decorating. At least it’s all behind us now, and a brand new year is ahead.
I’m not going to make any unattainable resolutions for the next 12 months. I’m going to try to move more, make better food choices and find a balance in my life. I am also going to use my blog a lot more often to share with you the trials and tribulations of my daily life, and way more sewing goodies, links to awesome blogs, etc. 2011 was a very tough year for me, my Mum passed away suddenly in September, we were very close and I feel lost without her. So I am hoping for a peaceful 2012 , filled with good stuff!
I have been following Temecula Quilt Co.’s blog with the 12 days of Christmas that started on Dec. 25th. It’s fun, a 3 1/2″ block each day for 12 days , then a small mini quilt! Never too late to join in, all the blocks are on the blog!
My Days So Far
The other thing I am really excited about is The Free Motion Quilting Project by Leah Day. If you are at all interested in learning to free motion quilt, but are like me, who has been afraid to just go for it, you have to check this out! Sign up for the newsletter and you wont miss out on her weekly lessons. On January 1st , I free motioned a very small wall hanging. It is far from perfect, but I have to say I felt pretty good I accomplished something! New Year, no restrictions! ( on quilt related stuff! ) :)
Well, that’s it for now, I wish you all a year filled with happy unexpected pleasures and and no pot holes in the road of life!
Until next time,
