Yes, I know that it's still 2010 but I am thinking ahead and planning projects for January. Thoughts of those projects rumble around in my head as I work on some Christmas gifts and do my baking. Sometimes something pops into my head, so I make notes, draw sketches, make plans. One of the projects I'm planning will involve this woolfelt from NationalNonwovens ...............
These are sample colors I received back in early November but I just haven't had time to work with them. I did get them all washed and ready to use. Coming up in January, I'll be doing a program for the Deep Valley Quilt Guild on working with wool and/or woolfelt. I'll be pulling my "program" together beginning the first of the year. And is it just me or do any of you wonder how it can be 2011 when it seems only a year or so ago we were all anticipating the year 2000!!
Also coming up right after the first of the year will be a tutorial in blue and white that will help you use up a bit of your stash, plus a few other fun "snow-themed" projects. More on that in a week or so. Speaking of stash, I've been using some of it on some quilty Christmas gifts and would love to show you what I made.........but they are gifts for a couple family members who read my blog. ;-) Right after Christmas, I'll be able to show you what I managed to finish. And what about the things I cut out and didn't finish? Well, they will just be a head start for next year's gift list. :-)
Today, I am meeting my daughter and grandson, Jacob, for an impromptu "day-out". We decided to do this just for the fun of it. We're going to meet in St. Peter (MN) for lunch and then stroll through some of the shops and just see what we might find. I'll report back tomorrow. I'm especially looking forward to a visit to a shop called Swedish Kontour. Haven't been there in years! Since most things are ready for Christmas, this day will be fun and relaxing. I have to admit that I can still hardly believe that all my cards are mailed and went out last Friday! And I don't think I forgot anyone this year!
See ya all tomorrow!
