So I am back and plan to blog at least once a week. You can help keep me to that commitment by following and commenting!
We are at the beginning of a new year, so goals are in the forefront of many people's minds. Notice I didn't use the word, "resolutions." "Goals" just sounds better. Everyone should have goals. To find a job, save for college or a better place to live, or just to finish that quilt you started five years ago.
Here are my goals for 2012:
1. To finish one UFO a month.
2. To sew every day.
3. To tackle organizing my surroundings in small steps.
4. To blog here once a week!
To those ends I have sewn on three of the past five days, reorganized my kitchen and buffet drawers, and here I am blogging. Now I need to pick out a UFO to work on.
I am also taking a picture a day to archive small memories from the year. Here are some from the first five days. The first was a bread-making lesson from my friend Patty, an expert in the field, on New Year's Day. The second is 6 of the 14 log cabin blocks I sewed at our sew-in on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
Below is beautiful Spring Valley on New Year's Day. My phone said it was 79 degrees.
On the 2nd I went to Weight Watchers at their nice new location in the Von's Shopping Center in Rancho San Diego. That's another goal--to lose some weight and get fit, or at least fitter. On the3rd I made a sample Patience Corner block for class, using Anita Soloman's shortcut method (coming in another post).
On the 4th our quilting mini-group, Stitch 'N Bitch Quilters, met for dinner. Here is our group, l-r Barbara, Donna, Anna, Agnes, Nancy & Patty.
On the 5th I did some organizing. This is the new tea basket with all my teas in one place.
That's it for today. Hope you all are having a fabulous 2012 so far.
