I am not unhappy to see the end of 2010. I was pretty happy to see the snow melting in the 50° temps we were experiencing on the 31st. We had about a foot of snow on the ground from the previous month's many snowfalls and I can surely do without it. This was a shot from my front porch looking south late in the day when the fog was starting to move back in.
I'm not going to put a number on projects to finish, but I'd like to get a few of my own tops quilted this year -- I have them waiting with backing, so hopefully I can get one loaded every now and then. Kris and I started Bonnie's latest mystery and we're both still working on step 3 -- I have 15 more of these string blocks to make.
And yes, I know she'll be posting the borders next week and I did print off part 6 and love the quilt, so will definitely be finishing this one -- at my own pace.
I want to sew/quilt more, but I don't want to make a job of it -- more enjoying, less accomplishing. It's okay if it takes a few months to finish a quilt. I hope to do more hand work, maybe even some handquilting.
I hope to post more often on my blog this year -- the goal will be at least 3 times a week.
This will be a year of major changes again, hopefully. The plan is to put the house on the market; the dream is to actually sell it and buy something smaller. It would be wonderful to be settled in a new place by the end of the summer. To that end, I have a few resolutions about getting the house and yard ready - more like a timetable. I'm a great one for making lists and planning ahead, but I'd really like to worry less about the future and live more in the moment -- that will probably be a real goal to accomplish!
Steph and the grandkids came down for a few hours Friday. We're working on a quilt for Will's preschool auction. Briana wore her new outfit and jacket that I got her for Christmas -- she says she likes them!
A brand new year - new calendars (quilt ones, of course), a brand new slate.
A phone call from Steve most days.
