I promise to have fun in Quilt Corner every day, come rain or shine :-)
Sometimes that will be embroidery, other times it will be knitting, crochet, and most times it will be quilting and fabric related.
I will not promise to finish all my Ufos. not in 2017, not ever, and I will not stop shopping, or use all that I have here before shopping more.
Not long ago I was asked to front a No Shopping challenge……
Sorry, that is not me - I believe in supporting our shops - if we do not support our quilt shops, craft shops and yarn shops, soon we will be without any!
Most of our shops are independent and need our business continuously!
I promise to use from what I have, AND add new fabrics, patterns, books and yarn when I feel like it, guilt free - that's me in a nut shell :-)
I love to mix and match fabrics, and I will always need some new "spices" in any project.
In 2017 - I promise - to take care of myself in every way best to my health - feeding my body and soul with what is most important to me.
Sometimes that will mean I will retreat to Quilt Corner instead of being out and about, to keep away from people with colds and influenzas, or just to recharge my batteries.
If I am tired I will keep quiet, even on the blog, which is what has happened over the last couple of weeks. I had other plans at the beginning of the year, but you know, the best laid plans of men and mice…….
When I am tired, I do enjoy hand work so much - winter is not my season physically - and I feel that more year by year.
I am counting my blessings every day when I enjoy my books, my projects and all - they add sparkles to any day, both the good and the not so good.
I promise to keep up keeping up with my focus projects - and am starting a 1for1+6,2017 challenge for myself.
For every new start there must be at least 1 finish, + 6 more finishes through the year.
I did a similar challenge for myself in 2016 too, and even if I did not count to closely I know I finished more than I started, for what that is worth for me.
Knitting, stitchery, free hand embroidery, machine piecing and making a quilt from last year's stitchery - all this should keep me busy for a while.
I do not promise to keep on track with my focus project all the time, but sometimes is better than not at all ;-)
Wishing you a lovely day
wherever you are
