I always like the start of a New Year! I like the chance to review what's been and make plans for what's to come. It's refreshing!
I have some exciting plans for this year and plenty of space left for new thoughts and projects as they arise. I wanted to thrash out a few of my ideas here. It will be fun at the end of the year to see where I've come from, what I've achieved and how I've grown... and how much my plans have changed along the way!
Patchwork City Quilt - I got Elizabeth Hartman's book Patchwork City for Christmas and I'm planning to delve into my Lizzy House stash to make this one. I've made one block so far and I am stoked with how it looks and how fun it was to make! Hoping to make at least a block a week - two if I can!
Big Boy Quilt - my son turns two this year and I really want to make him a twin sized quilt as he'll be in a big bed before I know it. I had chosen a design for this but have recently gotten distracted by a different pattern. Trying to decide which he'll like best...
Swaps - I'm currently signed up for four swaps all of which ship by early April so plenty of fun to be had on that front! As an aside, much as I love swaps I've told my hubby he mustn't let me sign up for any more until after April... I need to keep time aside for my selfish sewing!
The Bee Hive Quilting Bee - as the bee I'm currently in ends this month I thought it was safe to join another - which starts next month. Perfect! I loved my bee experience last year and am going to sorely miss it - Aussie Modern Instabee Hive 5 ladies are the best!!
Sydney Modern Quilt Group - I'm planning to join! I want real life quilt friends as well as online ones!
A Lovely Year of Finishes - planning to link up and be motivated to finish at least one something every month!
There are plenty more ideas bobbing around in my head but these are the ones most prominent right now. Here's hoping this is a year of inspiration, exploration and friendship... and regular blogging!
