The Christmas decorations are put away, the house is slowly being cleaned and tidied. I am ready for the NEW......new quilts, new less cluttered home and a NEW ME!!!!
I begin with the quilts. In the photo you will see my first quilts of the New Year.....a pattern I am developing that I still haven't named but am thinking "Double Dutch". The fun part is that you make two quilts at the same time....how is that for efficient????
The other NEW is that I am using stash. After cleaning out and hauling a back breaking amount of fabric to share with my students, I am vowing to keep some control. On the back of my sewing room door is a clear envelope that I will keep my fabric receipts in. Do you think that will keep me from buying more....well, I can only hope.
The other new is that I have joined Red Geranium Cottage in a diet challenge. You can see the cute little icon that Sharon has shared with us. She promises this will be fun, and a certain Polka Dot girl has encouraged me that we can do this. You will see s picture of us at Camp Cedar Glen. I am hoping that the next time I post our pictures from camp, people will be asking "who are those two slim and cute girls?" Keeping fingers crossed that I can answer IT IS US!!!!
So here is to a New Year of fresh starts and hopeful dreams. Back to the house cleaning part....how many calories do you burn dusting????
