Getting Ready for 2017

To get ready to focus on my quilting again, I looked back at my posts from last year.  These were few and far between.  I want to do better this year and accomplish more than I have this past year. This year I want to do more of my own choice in quilting and still accomplish what I promised to do.  

There have been a lot of bumps along the road this year and some we're still dealing with here at home.  But, it's all looking up now.

I have revised my UFO's for this year to include just what I have actually worked on, or started, instead to what I want to do or think I want to do.  I have had a few pitfalls like thinking I could participate in the 365 Challenge, which proved to be too daunting.  I had to abandon that for sure.  I also realizedI had about five leader and ender projects going, which is nuts.  Some had to be put as actual projects  with dedicated time spent on each one.  One was too complicated to be a leader/ ender and became its own project for sure.  Another pitfall I had that played in there was too much time spent playing games on my  I Pad.  That is a black hole in space and time. I'm still playing  but spent at least half the time I did.  And believe it or not, I got to doing too many different things, such as knitting, embroidery, wool embroidery, applique and English paper piecing.  You really can overdo on the hand work!

So, this next year I plan to dedicate more free time to handwork, instead of games.  I plan to make time every day in my sewing room working on projects I love.  I also plan to write more on my blog.

Since this is purely a written blog today, I want to add a picture.  I think every post should have a picture.  This is our precious Adeline that came to visit for Christmas on her quilt made for her.
