Happy New Year!
This is not me! My mind just does not work that way, never did-never will. I am more of the spare of the moment, ‘Oh I need a gift….tomorrow’, last minute person.
This drives Larry crazy at times….for better or worse….
As my followers have noticed I am not consistent enough to make a list let alone stick to it!
(However a great example of a goal oriented list maker
is Beth: http://appliqueand.blogspot.com.)
In the last 2 months – wow it has been a time – I won a book from Anna: http://wooliemammoth.blogspot.com
and a pattern designed by Ronene: http://ohmybloominthreads.com offered in agive away by Doris: http://www.quiltingqueenonline.com/
I made a cute slouchy top using a free pattern designed by Autumn: http://www.itsalwaysautumn.com.
Her site is a great one to follow.This year’s ornaments in glass were wreaths. When I was putting the ribbons on the ornaments, I notice the original price of the ribbon was 19 cents a yard! I bought the spool which was about half full at a close out sale years ago. I think I paid a whole dollar for it!
For my close friends I also embroidered T-towels and made cute pincushions.
My friend and I went to a different quilt guild in Oct. It was a nice guild but way too far away. This picture is a sampling of one person's work.
My son and family came up from TN for Christmas. Nice few days, just too short of a visit.
I did not see my youngest granddaughter (and son) but I sent her presents from Santa along with my older son as he and family were spending the day with them.
This tip is again a rather ‘elementary' one.Very often I sit down to check my emails, Facebook, Blogs I follow, and Pinterest. I look up at the time and WHAT?!? Where did it go????
I wanted to get in the sewing room and it’s way too late to think about starting anything!!!!!!
AAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!So this year I will be setting an alarm so time does NOT get away from me.
Why didn’t I do that last year? I might have gotten more projects done…..
Have a great week!D.G. L
