It's the gift from my son and he chose fabrics I can use in my crazy quilting projects.....navy and black velveteen and red satin. They are perfect for some projects I need to finish. So right here ......and right now.......I am making a New Year's Resolution. Drumroll........My resolution is that by the end of 2011, I will finally finish the crazy quilt blocks that I began in 2000. They must all be done and embellished and ready to sew into a full size throw that will be finished by January 31, 2012. That's it. That's my resolution. I could resolve to lose weight (I have lost 8 lbs and do not plan to go in search of them and maybe I'll lose more but what if I don't?) or I might say I'm going to never buy anymore fabric (that would be a lie!) or I won't eat anymore chocolate (I gave up Coca-cola, how on earth could I give up chocolate, too?). I always make time to see my family as much as possible and more when it works out, and I make time to volunteer so I had to resolve to do something that I just can't seem to get done. My dream of a finished crazy quilt must come true. Yes, I need to go from "crazy quilt blocks in progress" to "Crazy Quilt is a finished project!" You heard it here. It will be done......January 31, 2012. I'll keep you posted, you know I will. :-)
Now, speaking of keeping you posted...............you will want to check in next week as I have a whole bunch of stuff that is going to be happening here on my blog and elsewhere. That's all I'm saying right now. All the details will be posted in my Monday morning "What's on the line?" post. I'll be posting this weekend but no clues for what's coming up until I see you all next Monday.
Hope you all have some lovely plans for welcoming the New Year.....even if it's just staying home to play games with the family or watch a movie and enjoy some snacks and toast the start of a New Year! Have fun whatever you do!
Sandi who is wishing all of you...........
Happy New Year!!!
