I am soo excited to start this new year! I have lots of new patterns and quilts I can’t wait to start this year.
I have never really been one to make new years resolutions but this year I hope to be more “aware”. I have read several different blogs or articles where women have picked a single word and tried to concentrate on it for a year. I think I will try that this year. My word is going to be AWARE. I want to be more perceptive in this new year. I have a tendency to be .. (whats the word?) not dingy ( spelling may be off here) but scattered maybe? or just not very detailed at times. I don’t “pay attention” to things and sometimes I may have prevented something from happening or intercepted a situation before it got to be a “situtation”. Of Course, this has absolutely nothing to do with art or sewing, just wanted to share my thoughts for a moment. Any one else have thoughts on this? I would love to hear comments.
Now, On to the good stuff…
I recently made a new pillow and some matching table toppers for my den… I am IN LOVE with the bright scrappy fabrics on crisp white “look”…
This one I machine quilted. I still love the look and even though these don’t match completely, they all share similar if not some of the same fabrics. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the results.
Another shot of the hand quilted table topper. I love hand quilting even though I am by NO means an expert at it. I love the look as well as the chance to sit and watch tv with the family while Im working on a project.
I hope every one had a safe and Happy New Year!
Until next time~ Audrey
