Doesn't this list look like a great one for New Year's Resolutions? I have already done the first one a few times and a few others. Our year has been pretty soggy so far with more rain coming today. That's OK you need the rain to get flowers and rainbows but I hope it stops before I get too blue.
I started the year off with a trip to the movies with my two younger children. We had been trying to find a day when we were free to see The Hobbit and finally did. Dear husband wasn't feeling up to it. He has been a little under the weather the last few weeks but is finally feeling a little better and is planning to go see it today.
The movie of course was great. I was a little sad when it was over because I have enjoyed all of Peter Jackson's journeys into Middle Earth so much and they are over now. They have made me want to take a trip to New Zealand too. If only it weren't so far away.
I will just have to focus on trips I can make for now. This year I plan to make a trip around the Rainbow again by joining the Rainbow Scrap Challenge again.
I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of a hand dyed packet of fabrics from Vicki Welsh to use in my monthly blocks. I will also try to make some progress on two of the other projects that I had planned to work on last year. Here are some pictures in case you have forgotten what they were.
A Storm at Sea variation and this Amish Batik Beauty.
You may remember that I made blocks for this one. I still need to add the corner triangles and work on the border units.
Here is what they were looking like one of the last times they were on my design wall. Just in case you need to refresh your memory. I made more including some green ones but I don't know if I got a picture of them all together before I took them down.
Right now I have the whole set of the ones below on my design wall. I need to get of picture as soon as I am done swapping them about for the final layout. I made a total of 31 blocks.
I was surprised that my husband said he really liked them. They are very bold and modern. I think I am almost over my solid fabric faze for a while.
Of course the top I did get finished was my Soul Searching one. I had so much fun with that one that I might have to make another one this year. Do you think I should?
I know you probably aren't interested in the clothes I wear. Honestly, I think it would be a little strange if you were. However I wanted to share this fun shirt I found while I was Christmas shopping a few weeks ago. If you have been reading my blog for very long you know I have a thing about owls. This one just flew into my hands and had to come home with me especially since it was the right size.
Isn't it a Hoot! Love the glasses! By the way it is laying on my bed. I'm not that flat. LOL
I'll be back with more to tell soon. I need to get to my studio and work on something to share with you. I haven't even made it down there yet this year.
