Happy New Year Blog friends!
Here's to many happy stitches and completed projects in 2017!
I've spent a good portion of my day in my sewing studio contemplating what I'd like to accomplish in the year ahead. As I went through my stash it became obvious that UFO's did not emerge to be a problem (YEAH!) but I did find enough projects to join OMG for the year! See:
I'm looking forward to rejuvenating my Wonky RSC Flowers and second Saturday Sampler adventures with my quilty friend. My heart feels JOYFUL (little sampler quilt coming soon) and thus I've chosen JOY to be my word for the year. I'm looking forward to dedicating each third Thursday post to celebrating and sharing JOYFUL "stuff". (Who knows what I'll come up with but it will be fun)
My goals are posted right where I can see them every single day which is going to be important as my sewing routine will be going through a wonderful, but kinda major overhaul. After three years of NOT having weekends together, hubby and I are back on the same Monday through Friday work schedule! We're both really looking forward to this change as it will allow us to take mini weekend adventures together whenever we want and we won't have to take time off from work to do so. Thus, having an intentional plan for the year will keep me focused and productive, as I'm going to have to learn to fit smaller but more frequent times in to sew. But don't worry, he's already searching for his own recliner for the studio with plans to relax and watch TV as I sew. Of course I told him, we can rearrange the furniture however he needs. (Well kinda...but don't tell him!) LOL!
Wow! I already feel motivated to have things planned....and well, since it continues to snow...

...I think I'll get started!
